Many travelers think that you need to save millions to go on a safari in Africa, and have an enjoyable experience, but that is not the reason. You can have an amazing experience even if you do not have the millions to pay for every good thing in Africa. African safaris are typically expensive but we have some tips that can guide you not to spend a lot of money on a budget Uganda holiday.
Here are some ways on how to enjoy a budget Uganda holiday and save money on your Uganda safari trip.
Book your trip upfront. If you would like to travel in the high season or want to go Gorilla trekking, make sure you book and secure your trip in advance. Book with Great Adventures as we are situated in Uganda and we can help you arrange all the services for your safari in Uganda. The high season months of June, July, August, December, January and February contact us in advance to help us make all the arrangements we need.
This gives us a chance to book you in a lodge or hotel early enough and you will not have to spend much more on expensive and especially lodges because the budget ones are all taken by the early birds.
Travel as a group. A budget Uganda holidays with four to six friends or a family is not much more fun but also reduces the pressure on your wallet. In a group, the price per person goes down because you share some of the costs, although of costs like part entry fees, food and accommodation does not change but mostly transport costs as one of the factors will go down as you will be sharing the transport.
Budget or moderate lodging facilities. Lodging is another cot factor for a budget Uganda Holiday. You can reduce costs by staying and considering budget or moderately priced hotels or lodges.
Luxury lodges and hotels are very nice and comfortable but most of the travelers now are budget travelers and cannot afford such expensive accommodation on top of the USD600.00 per person per trek most especially when they have Gorilla trekking. That is why you have to book in advance the budget or moderately priced lodges before they are full for the season. For example in Entebbe and Kampala you can get Lodges that charge from USD30 to USD80.00 per room but advance booking is required.
Uganda Visas. As much as you can buy the Uganda Visa from your home country, but it becomes somehow expensive with costs like surcharges if credit card is use, mailing, passport photos and other. You can carry USD50.00 with you and pay for your Visa at Entebbe International airport upon arrival at no extra costs.
The best thing to do when booking a safari in African countries Like Uganda, is to prepare research on your destination and see how thing run, then contact a local tour operator like Great Adventures Safaris to make all the arrangements for you basing on your budget and the operator will keep everything as per your budget. But planning a budget Uganda holidays is so much fun.
