Trips on planning a super luxury safari to Uganda.
Choosing your destination carefully. The perfect destination for you will make your experience one to remember. Choosing a destination requires one to carefully select a destination which is cost-effective and provides maximum satisfaction and value for money. Sometimes one may need to combine two destinations. The destination should be one that is accessible by both roads and flights. The best locations to visit include national parks in Uganda namely Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Mgahinga National Park, Kibale Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Semuliki National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park among other destinations. The most popular safaris one can do while in Uganda is Gorilla tracking experience, the game safaris in Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls Safaris.
Compromise on Accommodation
It doesn’t matter which safari destination you choose, compromising on accommodation by selecting the best of the best there is in a destination makes all difference from the kind of service that is offered. All of the National Parks in Uganda have accommodation facilities that will truly make your trip one of a kind, state of the art lodges that truly dedicate all their efforts to make sure that your stay at there lodges is very comfortable with services of 5-course meals, 24hrs room service, housekeeping, swimming pool, in house alcoholic drinks, sauna and gym. For any travellers to Bwindi consider options among Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp Uganda, trekkers Safari Lodge and Buhoma Lodge. The other thing is that one can exclusively stay at the lodge when this is requested, and all the rooms are blocked off for you for all the days you are there at a cost. This is usually for high profile clients and those who want to have a family getaways.
How to get to your destination.
If you are planning a super-luxury safari to Uganda, you have two options, either travel by road in a 4×4 luxury land cruiser that comes with a well-stocked fridge with drinks on the road and snacks, all these compliments on the house. The 4×4 vehicle is very comfortable with pop-up roof for game viewing and an address system to hear your guide as he explains and drives through the parks. Even those that travel by flight, they still need to get a car to get them to the lodges and to doing the activities.
Scheduled and chartering flights. All National parks have domestic flights operating there with Aerolink and Kampala Executive Aviation being the major operators to these destinations. To avoid the long drives, one can choose to just fly between the destinations, but with this, you have to travel with others.
Chartering flights. This can be expensive but gives you exclusive usage to the plane and also allows you to schedule when you want to travel to your destination. We have Airstrips all around the National Parks; Bwindi and Mgahinga National Parks we have Kisoro Airstrip and Kihihi Airstrip, Queen Elizabeth uses Kihihi Airstrip, Mweya Airfield and Kasese Airstrip which is used by Kibale National Park as well. We have Pakuba Airfield and Bugungu Airstrip for Murchison and Kidepo Airstrip in Kidepo National Park.
Private activities. It is essential to plan for your activities very well, and you can plan to do exclusive packages from Gorilla tracking to boats and activities in the park. For Gorillas with one buying off all the 8 Gorilla permits in the groups means you will track that group just you and our guide with no other tourists and this can be arranged for you on request to us. For other activities like boat rides in Queen Elizabeth National Park, one can have the boat to themselves or even do game drives on a chopper, what would make a more impressive than watching the animals from above. Also during game drives you can do off-track game drives and lion tracking experience which bring you up and close to the animals unlike when you pay normal fees.
When to plan your travel.
Planning a destination trip requires precise timing and knowing the best times by consulting with your travel agent. Seasons are very important when it comes to timing. The high season months of July, August, September, December and January are most preferable but also this comes with high demand for the Gorilla permits, and they tend to sell out first, so you need to start planning your trip at least six months before the actual date to ensure that all goes well. Also during this time of the year, it’s the dry season, and warmer hence makes it easy to spot game and if Gorilla tracking the trek is much more relaxed during this time. During the wet season the forests are slippery and its harder to trek the Gorillas while if you are doing a game safari, even here it’s much harder to see animals through the growing green grass as its tall and the animals hide in the figs.
Popular destinations to visit.
Bwindi is the most popular destination in Uganda because of the Gorilla tracking should be top of your list when it comes to planning your safari, with super luxury accommodation and offering the best service. Gorilla permits are also available when a booking is made in advance. Mgahinga National also offers Gorilla tracking, which is complemented by the existence of the Golden monkeys, which can also be tracked. Chimpanzee tracking experience in Kibale Forest National Park offers you an add-on if you are in the region.
For those in love with game Queen Elizabeth National Park, Lake Mburo National Park, Semuliki National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park and Murchison Falls will give you a mouth full to enjoy.
So if you are planning a trip to Uganda consider spending from at list 3 days to even up to 30 days while travelling and staying in the best available accommodation. We can tailor any package you want regardless of the number of days and the style of travel you are interested in.
