Our Story

Customer service is not a
department, it


My name is Godlisten, or Goddy for short. My mother bestowed this name upon me because my birth posed challenges, making her pray fervently, saying, “God, listen.” Eventually, I entered this world, hence my name.

During my time in primary and secondary school, I developed a passion for safaris and harbored a dream of establishing my own safari company. After completing my studies, I worked with various tourism companies to acquire the skills needed to realize my dream.

One memorable day, while on a travel leisure trip with a company I was employed by, we visited Rubondo Island National Park on the Tanzanian side of Lake Victoria. It was there that I witnessed the wonders of nature, particularly a spotted-necked otter on Rubondo Island. This experience held great significance for me, as I marveled at the beauty of these creatures. So that why I chose Otters Safaris name.

Otters Safaris, We take pride in putting you in the right place at the right time to maximize your wildlife encounters. This is at the heart of everything we do, at all levels of the business. Our team has lived, worked and traveled across all over East Africa such as Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, and together we have the requisite knowledge and experience to plan the perfect safari for you.
“Specialist” tour operators are not so specialists anymore in today’s day and age, but we believe our wildlife-centered approach is unequaled in the industry. we craft itineraries that will leave you with unforgettable wildlife sightings.
Although technically a “tour operator”, we like to think of ourselves as more of a “travel outfitter”. Our salespeople aren’t salespeople – they’re Destination Specialists, each one an expert in the regions that they work with – and the trips we create are designed to bring you as close to the natural world as possible, no matter what it takes.
