Expert Tips for Booking Your Ultimate Uganda Safari Tour and Holiday

There are so many places you should visit on your Uganda safari holidays. This is not the case with Rwanda safaris. Uganda national parks are awesome. Some of the top destinations include; Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for gorilla safari holidays, Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park and the magical Lake Bunyonyi. With our budget Uganda safaris, you will visit all these places and sleep in comfortable lodges for less. This is something we guarantee to all our clients right from their gorilla tour booking time.

Reasons to Experience the Wonders of Uganda Safaris

Your primary reason for visiting could be gorilla trekking safaris, but just try so hard to diversify your safari. Uganda safaris offer one of the best wildlife viewing experiences despite being the best place for gorilla safaris in Africa and the world at large. Uganda is one of the only countries that shelter the big five game animals, cheetahs and ostriches. The country's wilderness is so rich with approximately 345 mammal species. You should definitely include sights of other primates like Golden Monkeys, Chimpanzees and more in your safari plans. Uganda has the biggest population of primates in the East African region. It account for over half of the existing mountain gorillas followed by Rwanda and Congo. You can read more information regarding this in our travel information section.

Cost of Gorilla Safaris in Uganda

A gorilla permit in Uganda costs $600 each. This money is exclusive of accommodation, transportation, meals, guide fees and more. The price of a gorilla trekking permit, accommodation you chose (budget, moderate or upmarket), number of days, additional destinations to visit, number of people in your group and kind of transportation you use will determine the total price of your gorilla safaris in Uganda.

If you choose to trek gorillas twice, you will spend $1200 ($600 for each gorilla trekking activity) on permits alone. If you stay in an upmarket accommodation facility, you will spend over $500 per night and about $150 per night for budget safari lodges. If you travel for many days, you will pay more. If you are many in your group, you will definitely pay less for your gorilla expedition because of shared costs on transportation. If you would like to get a quote for your package, you can contact any of our Uganda tour consultants by sending us an inquiry and we shall tailor your package and revert within the shortest time possible.

Best time to plan your Uganda safari adventure

The best time to visit Uganda is definitely during the dry months of the year. December - February are the hottest months where as June - September are equally good months but the most competitive of all. When you schedule your Uganda tours for the dry season, you will have a chance to spot huge numbers of wildlife and primates. During such months, animals wander freely around national parks and go to the river banks for water more often. Roads are also dry and transport becomes easy!

This isn't the case with rainy months, the roads are muddy and vehicles get stuck often especially non-4x4 safari vehicles. Animals also tend to take shelter from the rain and suddenly become scarce around the park. Much as we recommend carrying out your Uganda safaris during dry months, you can also alternate and visit during the unpredictable months. Such months usually come with discounts on multiple services and facilities. The dry months are perfect for luxury gorilla trekking where as the wet months are perfect for budget safaris.

Selecting Top Mountain Gorilla Safaris in Uganda

Uganda has two gorilla trekking parks; Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest has over 18 mountain gorilla families where as Mgahinga has only one. Half of the total population of mountain gorillas reside in Bwindi; making it the best place for mountain gorilla safaris in the whole world.

So when booking your gorilla safaris in Uganda, endeavor to choose Bwindi Impenetrable National Park as your destination. Its a great national park with four sectors and these include; Buhoma sector, Ruhija sector, Rushaga sector and Nkuringo sector. Each sector has its own mountain gorilla families that you can choose from. If you prefer to trek gorillas in Uganda and another country, we do offer such combined gorilla trips at the best prices too.
