A new hailing mobile application “Safari Buddy” has been launched in Uganda and it comes bearing some really great news for not just hailers but the drivers as well. ‘’

The innovative app that is Safari Buddy connects riders with local drivers to provide a safe and convenient transportation option for all.

As a way of ensuring the safety of its Riders and Drivers, the App contains unique features such as in-app emergency assistance and real-time tracking, in addition to easy payment options, including the ability to pay with cash or mobile money.

“We’re excited to bring Safari Buddy to Uganda and contribute to the growth of the local economy. We believe that our commitment to safety and community involvement sets us apart and we can’t wait for our users to experience exactly that.”, said Davilla Coopers, the CEO at Safari Buddy.

She also furthered that they have partnered with local organizations to provide employment opportunities for drivers and donate a portion of profits to charitable causes.

Important to note is:

For the first six months, drivers can enjoy trips at no transaction fees and this will give them the
opportunity to earn more money on their own terms. 

Additionally, drivers have the ability to put out trips at their own prices, giving them even more control over their earnings.

That’s not all, Safari Buddy also specializes in upcountry trips, allowing riders to explore Uganda’s beautiful countryside with ease; same goes for boat cruise bookings where hailers can get to enjoy views of Uganda’s stunning lakes and rivers in style.

Lastly, Safari Buddy allows users to send cargo packages and put their cars for hire as well.

Visit their website or App Store or even the Google Play Store to download the app that’s now available in Kampala, Entebbe and Jinja, with plans of expanding to other cities soon.
