I'm Arthur - my friends call me Zaasa. I was born and raised in Kampala, Uganda. I have had the opportunity to live in a different country for a year, and to travel to different global destinations over the years. From the experiences I had and the people I met on these travels, I was inspired to find ways of sharing the best bits of day-to-day life in Uganda's main cities (Kampala, Jinja, Entebbe) with guests that are visiting Uganda. I founded Immersionug with a group of friends: We are a team of young people that are passionate about our country and want to share the awesome aspects of Uganda like our food, our hospitality, our diverse culture and nature with visitors that seek a taste of local day to day experiences. I worked for eight years in Uganda's leading brewery and the home of our best known beer, Nile Special, and I am a beer enthusiast. I have hosted countless house parties, boat cruises and I am always hanging out with friends on the weekends. I have also hosted countless visitors to Uganda in my home via couch surfing and have hang out with guests on many occasions. I have visited most of the capitals in Western Europe and spent a year in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am excited to be able to share many of my favourite activities in Uganda's cities, with other like minded visitors.

Onesmus was a fantastic guide. We booked super short notice, only an hour before and quickly got a response. We got to see all of the highlights of Jinja plus a little more. He was more than happy to accommodate our special requests. I definitely recommend him.
