& Gorilla Encounter
This is a budget minded fully guided tour featuring clean and secure accommodations and wildlife viewing in three wildlife parks.
This safari takes you into the heart of Africa. Many nations in Africa recognize that tourism is a way for their country to help infuse money directly into the poorest parts of their economy. Because the safari's take place in wilderness settings the villagers who live near these wild animal parks benefit tremendously from jobs and from the money tourism generates. The long time practice for safari's has been to have seemingly lavish accommodations with outlandish prices attached.
We break that old pattern by using a combination of safari tents and economical motel lodgings. Our safari tent accommodations are not air conditioned, but they are comfortable and they place you on safari in really good locations at a good price.
For reference here is our 2014 trip details
Trip Price: $4,777, Double occupancy,
solo price add $350
The 2014 trip took place in July and August (part of the dry season); please keep in mind that Uganda is located at the equator (passing through southern Uganda) so other than rainy and dry seasons the weather doesn't change drastically. The average annual temperature is about 26°C (78°F). Uganda's rainy seasons are generally from March untill May and October untill November. Dry seasons are from December to February and June to August.
