David talks to Praveen Moman who grew up in the wilds of Uganda, where his family was part of the pioneering Asian community central to opening up East Africa. He then moved to the UK after becoming a refugee during the Amin expulsion. In 1997, Praveen returned to Uganda where he founded Volcanoes Safaris.
Volcanoes Safaris has been at the forefront of reviving gorilla and chimpanzee ecotourism in Uganda and Rwanda. The lodges are sensitive to the culture of local communities, the need to use resources in a sustainable way, and empowering local communities. In 2005 Volcanoes Safaris became a signatory to the UN Kinshasa Declaration on Saving the Great Apes.
