Kiroyera Tours provide a range of Tanzania Travel and Tourism Services from its offices in Bukoba and Dar es Salaam. We are pioneers in bringing tourists to the Kagera region and also specialise in tailor-made eco friendly safaris and holidays into Uganda and Rwanda.
Founded in 2001 by 5 indigenous women in Bukoba on the western shores of Lake Victoria, we have steadily expanded our business to become one of Tanzania’s leading tour operators. We have spread our wings far and wide over the years, and although Kagera remains at the heart of our business, we are ready and waiting to extend a warm guiding hand to all visitors to our shores.
Please see our 2018 tour itineraries. They can all be tailored to meet any budget, travel dates, group size or desires you may have!2018 Tours

Kiroyera Tours understands that planning and finding the right air service in terms of price, timing, reliability and flexibility is a time consuming and complicated process.
As we are based in Tanzania and may be organising your tour, we know the timings that align with your park entry and departure permits, when it is quicker to drive than fly, and which air service companies operate a reliable schedule during the wet season! Most importantly, we know how to respond quickly to unforeseen circumstances whilst travelling in Africa.
