How much does a typical Uganda safari cost?

It is hard to say the exact cost of a safari because there are many variables to consider. Realistically, a Ugandan safari can cost between 100 USD and 1500 USD per day depending on the choice of activities, accommodation, and transportation.

For our packages, we have indicated the prices for each safari and all the necessary details. We sometimes have discounts for a limited time, and most trips become cheaper if the group is bigger and some costs are shared with more people.

Is Uganda safe for foreigners to visit?

The quick answer is YES, Uganda is safe for everyone to visit, stay and work.

The old days when some parts of Uganda were unstable are long gone and Ugandans and visitors can travel throughout all parts of the country freely, at any time. Beyond national stability, Ugandans are very warm and welcoming people who will make you feel at home.

What accommodation should I expect for my Uganda safari holiday?

Uganda’s tourism industry is well-developed and visitors have a wide array of accommodation options ranging from simple and basic campsites to luxurious hotels and lodges.

For our safari packages, we use the lodges and hotels where we have stayed and tested their facilities and service so that we know what to expect them to deliver for you – our guest. Most of our trips are based on midrange accommodations but this can be personalized to suit the needs of your own holiday.

Can my Ugandan safari be customized for me?

Yes. All our safaris can be customized to fit your specific needs. Whether it is the price, schedule, accommodation, activities, or anything else we can make the necessary changes to adapt your safari to you.

It is true that no African safari is the same, and we make sure that the Ugandan safari you go on will reflect what you want at every turn.

What kind of vehicle will I use for my Uganda holiday?

While the choice of your safari vehicle in Uganda depends on the size of the group, we use our safari land cruisers for our safaris. We also use our customized safari mini-buses for some safari tours – depending on different factors.

Whether it is with a safari Landcruiser or a mini-bus, all our vehicles are 4-wheel drive and capable to handle the wild. We also keep well-maintained and service vehicles for your safety and comfort.

Is my Ugandan safari inclusive of my international flight ticket?

Since we serve guests from all parts of the world, our safari packages are priced without including international flights. As you finalize the details and schedule of your safari, we often advise on how to deal with flights depending on where you are coming from.

What animals will I see on my Uganda safari holiday?

Uganda is one of the richest countries in Africa when it comes to the diversity of wildlife. With savannahs, swamps, forests, and mountains, there is so much to see.

The main animals to see in Uganda include mountain gorillas, golden monkeys, chimps, elephants, lions, leopards, hippos, zebras, giraffes, cheetahs, crocodiles, and much more. Additionally, Uganda has more than 1000 different bird species.

Depending on where your Uganda safari holiday is taking you, all the above and more are possible for you.

Do I need to be physically fit to go on a safari in Uganda?

Generally, your Uganda safari doesn’t require physical fitness beyond the normal fitness of most people. In a more specific sense, the level of fitness will depend on what activities you want to do on your safari holiday.

Gorilla tracking does require some enhanced physical activity but a porter is able to help and for those who can move much on their own, there are options for getting carried.

The most physically challenging activities in Uganda are mountain climbing, especially Rwenzori which is Africa’s toughest.

For most safari tours, there is no special requirement for physical fitness. However, given that every person is different, talk to our team about this and get advice that is specific to you.
