OUR TEAM

Robert

Co-Founder & Director of USA Operations 

Robert is Co-Founder and Director of Operations for our Outskirt Safaris Team in the United States. While Robert is located in the United States, he lived in Uganda for some time while volunteering for the judiciary--this is when he ultimately fell in love with the country. 

 

Robert travels back and forth to Uganda often and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in planning safaris throughout the country. While he loves viewing animals in their natural habitat, his real passion is for the incredible culture that exists throughout Uganda. Robert is active in Rotary International and involved in non-profits throughout Uganda focused on world peace. He has donated thousands of hours to organizations promoting youth leadership development and is excited to continue his work through Outskirt Safaris! Robert's favorite animal is the giraffe--which can be seen at several of the national parks around Uganda!

Travis

Co-Founder & Director of Marketing 

Travis is the Co-Founder and Director of Marketing for the Outskirt Safaris team located in the United States. Travis travels back and forth to Uganda often and around the world promoting the incredible opportunities related to tourism in Uganda. Travis loves sharing with prospective visitors about his experiences traveling through Uganda, and about his favorite animal which is the chimpanzee!

 

Although Travis loves the wildlife and landscapes of Uganda, his true enjoyment lies in the heart of the local villages spending time with children and learning the local language. Travis first went to Uganda to visit Co-Founder Robert while he was there volunteering, resulting in a love for the people and culture.  When Travis isn't promoting the "Pearl of Africa," he can be seen working in law enforcement  and with non-profits focused on homelessness.
