Hi, I'm Tim

Come Trek with us

A New Way To See Nature

Welcome to Trekking Timmy!

Dear discerning travel enthusiast, at Trekking Timmy, we are your key to unlocking the unparalleled wonders of East Africa.

Picture this: the sun setting over the Nile, the snow-capped peaks of the Rwenzori Ranges, the exhilaration of a gorilla encounter in the Mountains, and even better, the warm smiles of local communities inviting you into their rich cultural experience. This is what we live, laugh, and trek for.

Trekking Timmy was founded in March 2015 by renowned travel maverick and nature enthusiast, Timothy Kintu. Born and bred in Kampala, Uganda, he is a native of East Africa who traded the sleek suits of the banking profession for the travel guide’s khaki to convert his passion for cars and travels into a world-class safari enterprise.

Timothy Kintu is no rookie to this terrain. Already a regular traveller himself with more than 20 years of experience in the tour and travel sector. He has successfully undertaken several East African tours and frequently did freelance guiding for friends, colleagues, and international tour companies to date.

It is from these trips that Timothy got inspired to start Trekking Timmy, with the ambition to build it into a user experience-centred, East African, premium travel company and one of the industry’s leading innovators.
