Betty was born and raised in Kampala and graduated from Makerere University with a Bachelors Degree in Tourism. During the 6 years she has worked in the tourism industry, she has been on a number of safaris in East Africa. Her Favourite area in Uganda is the South West – Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. The scenery is breathtaking. Travelling is her passion, and she considers herself extremely lucky to be able to combine this with her work at Volcanoes every day. The most rewarding part of her job is hearing clients thank her for making their dreams come true – who wouldn’t be inspired by such remarks! She is passionate and serious her work, but she does it with an infectious smile. Her favourite quote is from Susan Satong – “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list – Susan Satong.
Onzi joined the tourism industry in 2007 whilst completing a bachelors degree in Tourism from Makerere University in Kampala. After working at the Emin Pasha hotel for a year, she was then moved to the managing company’s head offices, where she worked for 5 years before moving to an internal flight company. At the time flying safaris were just being introduced into Uganda, making the country far more accessible. She wanted to be a part of this exciting new innovation.
