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.

We took a guided tour in Entebbe with Arthur and had the best time. He told us a lot about the history of Entebbe, showed us all the sights also around the Botanical Garden, where he had a great knowledge of the plants and animals. But must important! He was genuinely kind and answered my many questions about culture and his life, while showing interest in ours back in Denmark, which made it a truly great experience. I am so glad we went.

Had an amazing time with Ham this morning. He even extended the tour for me a little as I still had energy to walk. Lovely guy, very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Uganda Entebbe :)

We had a nice walk through Entebbe with guide Arthur. Arthur knows everything about Entebbe and its history, but also about Uganda. Nice to talk with him about all kinds of things, like sports, culture, politics and history. He is super friendly, clear in communication and on time.
