Factors To Consider When Booking A Budget Uganda Safari

There are not so many factors to consider when booking Affordable Uganda Safari. Below we discussed some of the factors to consider when booking a Uganda Budget Safaris.

The Travel Agency

One mistake you should never make is going for high profile companies or book through a travel agent. High profile travel companies have made a brand and will always charge you a crazy amount for a tour. A travel agent on the other hand will also want to make a profit out of your safari.

The best option is searching for operators online. Alternatively, you can book through these recommended trekking operators.

Make sure you book with a company that is based in Rwanda or Uganda. Do not book your gorilla safari with a Kenyan company, Tanzanian company or any company outside Rwanda and Uganda.

The local tour operators usually have low operational costs and will give you the best quote.

Choosing Destination

Uganda is a perfect place for budget safaris if you want to combine both the savannah and the rainforest experience in the same destination without crossing borders. With the many advantages that visit Uganda rewards, being a more fordable option by many is one, less crowds in the park and lodges are some of the other advantages among many.

Choice of Accommodation

Gorilla safari lodges play a huge part to your safari. We would suggest you book comfortable accommodation. Do not allow your tour operator to book lodges that are too cheap as it will ruin your trip.

When you go tracking, you return to your lodge to relax and if you do not feel comfortable with your accommodation then you won’t enjoy your trip the way you should have done.

The Safari Vehicle

A safari van is usually quoted at $100 per day where as a Land Cruiser goes for $250 – 300 per day. This depends on your tour operator as some operators charge less. Nevertheless, the charge above is the industry standard.

Opt for a safari van, super custom in particular if you may. These cars can sometime mean to be more comfortable that land cruisers.

Only ensure they are 4 wheel and not 2 wheel drive. Ugandan roads can get muddy at times hence, a 4wd safari car is highly recommended.

Number of Days

The fewer your days, the less you’ll spend. A five – ten days safari cannot cost the same as a 2 – 3 days safari.

If your main aim is seeing gorillas, booking a 3 days Gorilla Trekking Uganda from Kigali is a good option and you should consider it.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park’s proximity to Kigali has made it easier for clients to arrive in Kigali and transfer to Bwindi on the same day then trek gorillas and transfer to Kigali on the same day too. This way, you can see gorillas on a budget in 2 days.

Where You Arrive From

Arriving from Uganda is a bit costly. Its impossible to arrive and transfer to Bwindi on the same day unless your flight reaches earlier than 0700 hours.

Besides we would not recommend this. Imagine sitting on a flight for 6 – 8 hours then you arrive and take on another 8 – 10 hours journey to Bwindi. Either way, you will have to spend a day / night in Kampala or Entebbe then transfer to Bwindi the following day.

This is costly because you will have to pay for accommodation, meals, airport transfer plus a few more costs that may arise.

So where should you arrive from? Arriving in Kigali and driving to Bwindi is the best option. It is only 4 – 5 hours from Kigali to Bwindi with a stopover. You can arrive and transfer to Bwindi on the same day and won’t need to spend money on accommodation for the first night.

These are just a few of the things we take into consideration when planning a Budget Safari Uganda for our clients. Other factors include how to get around, what type of travel documentation is required, if any vaccines are recommended, safety, and many more. Our Uganda Travel Tips that we provide is well articulated and you won’t miss any necessary things or equipment in your trip.
