Safaris and Ecotours

At Uprise Travel, we aim to dispel the myth that East and Southern Africa are the only destinations for wildlife travelers in Africa. Our tours in West Africa include outdoor adventure tours, safaris, birdwatching tours, boat tours, hikes, and more. Whether you are looking for birds, elephants, chimps, baboons, hippos, or crocodiles, West Africa has something for you!

Wildlife exploration and conservation are two of the main reasons that Uprise Travel exists today. As the son of a park ranger who grew up with the elephants and baboons in Mole National Park, leading amazing wildlife tours will always be one of my top priorities.
