Introducing our new partner, Bunyonyi Safaris!

The Village Experience has teamed up with Bunyonyi Safaris to offer new, socially-responsible adventures in Uganda. Lake Bunyonyi is one of the deepest lakes in Africa, and safe for swimming! Located near the border with Rwanda, Bunyonyi Safaris offers everything from gorilla tracking to trekking safaris to white water rafting and other cultural activities.  TVE will be helping the company begin community tourism programs and fair trade groups to employ local women.  The TVE store, located in the Broad Ripple neighborhood of Indianapolis, is already carrying woven reed bracelets made by a women’s group living in this area. These women travel from different islands on the Lake to work together to make  baskets, bracelets and other items out of local reeds. TVE will be sending several interns to Lake Bunyonyi over the summer to help complete these projects and promote our partnership with Bunyonyi Safaris!
