An affordable safari in Uganda

Travel during the low season rainy months of April, May, October and November for discounts on travel packages, lodges and gorilla tracking permits.

If you’re planning on going chimpanzee trekking, do some research on the cost of permits in different reserves, as the prices vary as widely as US$40 in Kalinzu Forest up to Kibale Forest’s US$150.

To save on transport costs, it’s a good idea to choose a few places to base yourself in and explore the surrounding area from there, rather than travelling to a new destination every day or two.

Joining a tour is one way to have a value-for-money holiday, as hiring your own 4x4 to self-drive Uganda is expensive. A group tour offers the best value for money, as your transport and lodging are included and then activities are optional extras.
