Tailor-made Safaris in Uganda

With our tailor-made Uganda safaris, the traveller has complete control of which places they visit, what they do, and the total cost of the entire safari trip.

The traveller also can leverage specialist knowledge, many contacts, the best local guided and financial protection through bonding. There are many more soft hidden advantages of a tailor-made safari in Uganda that may not be immediately obvious. For example, the traveller has a better chance of getting the most out of the destination. Because the local outfitter organises everything in advance on the traveller’s behalf, they won’t have to spend your precious time hunting around for the best services. That, therefore, translates into more time spent doing the things they want to do.

Finding availability is a huge obstacle for many travellers. Your travel window could be set in stone when you have work or other commitments. It can be frustrating not to find a suitable Uganda safari with the proper departure dates. Our tailor-made safaris make it relevant for the traveller to set the departure and return date.

All our local partners are in the experience business, very keen on growing their business with us. As such, you’re more than just another traveller passing through Uganda. Expect personalised service from our intuitive guides, drivers and any rep we engage with on your behalf.

Q&A About Uganda Safari Tours & Gorilla Trekking.

You should expect to drive through varied landscapes to reach your destination on your tailor-made Uganda safari. Uganda’s unique scenery of savannah plains, mountainous country, lakes, rivers, and rainforests makes it an attractive destination. In addition to all that is the incredible number of unique people cultures, wild animal and plant species that inhabit these lands.

Most tailored safaris begin in Entebbe and head west to join the most popular safari circuit that holds most safari parks.

An all-inclusive tailor-made Uganda safari typically consists of gorilla trekking in Bwindi, Chimpanzee tracking in Kibale, wildlife viewing game drives and boat safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Birding on these trips is outstanding, with more than 1000 bird species recorded in the most accessible bird spots.

The highlight of many tailor-made Uganda safaris is the once-in-a-lifetime moment travellers spend with a family of mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga National Parks. With fabulous safari lodges available for the gorilla trekking adventure, the experience has not been equated to any animal encounter.

Uganda is the best destination worldwide for primate adventures. Uganda hosts more than half of the last mountain gorillas in two national parks and 14 primate species swinging in various protected forests. Chimpanzee trekking adventures in Kibale National Park stand out as the best in the regions coupled with easy access to them.

Tailor-made Uganda safaris offer the best gorilla trekking and chimpanzee tracking experiences in the region. They would be the most substantial reasons for you to visit Uganda.

Uganda is one of the safest tourist destinations in Africa, although opportunist petty crime pop-up unexpectedly like in any other country. Uganda has also received a bad wrap for its politics and human rights abuse, which rarely spread into the tourism industry.

You’ll be surprised to see same-sex Ugandan walking hand-in-hand in the streets with disregard to the much-publicised impunity to the gay community. If you don’t bring it up or publicly show you affection like kissing, Ugandans will not care about your sexual choices.

Politics can be dirty, even in developed countries. For Uganda, it also gets down and dirty in the city streets during political rallies, which is why many tourists will avoid the cities during those times and head into the tranquil countryside. When the hot political winds blow, they usually don’t affect the national parks and remote destinations.

Parks, reserves and remote tourists destinations are some of the most well-protected places in Uganda, with an entire Uganda Wildlife Police Force dedicated to ensuring the safety of tourists and the animals. So tailor-made Uganda safaris with walking in the jungles and driving through national parks is quite safe for any traveller.

The dry season is the best time for a tailored safari in Uganda when there’s plentiful sunshine. It falls between June to August and December to February. The northern Kidepo Valley and Murchison Falls National Parks experience the least rainfall during that time.

Also, in the west and southwest regions, the dry months are the best for gorilla trekking and chimpanzee tracking adventures. The trails are dry and simple to navigate, and it’s simpler to spot wild animals as they gather around water points. Birding is relatively good during this time too. 

On the other side, Uganda has tropical weather, which means it could rain any day. However, the wettest months of March to May can be challenging for tailor-made Uganda safaris. Some lodges close down during this time or discount their rates.

Nonetheless, a tailored Uganda safari is good all year round, and tourists can visit Uganda any time.

When one mentions safari, the first thing that comes to mind is driving through endless golden plains filled with myriad animal species and unfolding predatorial drama. Although Uganda may not match the safari-likes of Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda throws a worthy punch relatively good for safari adventures.

Arguably, Uganda could give you a better-varied safari experience combining the savannah big-game, primates, mountains, rich birdlife and incredible landscapes. Few safari destinations can brag pulling off such varied experiences on a single trip.

You can trek mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, take a game drive, boat safari, hike mountains, dance at a cultural festival, and tick off a bird list of more than 1000 species on a single tailored Uganda safari.

You can book tailor-made Uganda safaris with a licensed expert local outfitter, like Nkuringo Safaris Ltd, who can fix a gorilla trekking adventure, secure your permits, accommodation and manage your entire journey without you breaking a sweat. The Uganda logistical environment is not very friendly to independent travellers because of the young travel industry, and it is very wise to use an Agent or local tour operator.

Please check our reviews to verify the reliability quality of local guides and safari vehicles. We own two multi-award-winning lodges in Entebbe (entry point) and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where our guest has rated our services highly for the past ten years.

Uganda has suitable safari accommodation to cater to all types of safari travellers. Uganda’s tourist parks offer a decent selection of safari accommodation, from budget hostels to luxury up-market safari lodges.

Many of Uganda’s safari lodges are small, with less than 10 rooms, offering an intimate private stay for their guests. If you’re lucky, you could occupy the whole property by yourself for days in the shoulder months.
