FOR MAKING 2017 AMAZING
We bring you season’s greetings from the Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO), Uganda’s leading tourism trade association and a flagship of the country’s finest tour companies and we thank God for protecting you.

2017 has been a fast, but fully packed year. This year came with countless opportunities for Uganda's tourism but also threw at us a couple of challenges. However in it all, we remain standing as a sector that drives job creation and employment, generates government revenue contributing immensely to government revenue while providing lifetime experiences to Uganda’s visitors. Together we have continued to push on towards making Uganda that desired destination of choice that she ought to be.

It’s around that time of the year that everyone sends Christmas Love and wishes of a prosperous New Year and here we are to wish you more than the very best of the festivities. Out with the old, in with the new: we desire that God’s blessings may flood your life, home and business and that you may be happy the whole of 2018.

Let’s take a minute or two to reflect on the highlights of 2017 as we look forward and plan to make the brand New Year the very very best yet.”
