A private, custom safari is a meticulously planned tour tailor-made, with the help of a safari consultant, to suit your particular travel style, avoiding your dislikes and bending towards what will make your experience a memorable one. Compared to a group safari that is already planned and priced for you, a tailor-made safari requires your involvement with an expert to put together and squeeze maximum value.
If you’re booking directly with a local expert like Nkuringo Safaris, emails and phone calls will be exchanged back and forth from the start till you get the destinations, attractions, accommodation, transportation, and meals right. Private safaris are more engaging, and the planning process can be a great experience for the traveler.
Most of our Uganda safaris at Nkuringo Safaris are tailor-made, all the way, with the traveler’s whole involvement. We employ our local knowledge of destinations and over 15 years of expertise to help our guests plan high valued safari trips.
I simply can’t imagine a better way to immerse yourself in the wildlife of a region, to explore hidden corners, and appreciate nuances while enjoying the benefits and enormous satisfaction of traveling under your own power. Privately planning a comprehensive safari is aimed at bringing you the immediate, highly personal satisfaction of discovering a new world on your own terms.
A tailor-made safari gives you the privacy to visit the places you like, with the people you’re comfortable traveling with, at your own time, pace, and pay the price you can afford without alerting the whole destination of your presence.
We’ve created especially enjoyable private Custom Safaris for eager first-timers, connoisseurs, celebrities, college buddies, friends-since-kindergarten, big bubbly families, and avid parties of one.
The sheer freedom of thoughtful selection of where you’ll staying and how you’ll be traveling gives you luxurious access to the destination’s finest camps, lodges, hotels, private villas, and estates.
A Private Uganda safari gives you the luxury of privacy and the uncomplicated serenity that comes with it, and the luxury of choosing where and when you want to go, where you want to stay, all based on your interests and inclinations.
Every Custom Safari is guided from beginning to end by a highly-credentialed Safari Manager or travel guide. It is a great way to take advantage of the expertise, destination relationships, and strong knowledge power that the manager has acquired over many safari trips like yours.
Because you are traveling in a foreign land, the safari manager makes sure you’re in the right place at the right time, service beyond your expectations, and bail you out when in unexpected trouble.
Our trip Concierge Service is at your beck and calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And behind all this is the Pinto family’s celebrated commitment to open-hearted, unstinting service.
Because you get to completely personalize what activities to include on your custom Kenya, Rwanda, or Uganda safari itinerary, Nkuringo Safaris can include everything from gorilla trekking in the misty mountain forests, hiking, rafting the white Nile rapids, birding, horseback riding amidst giraffes, and dancing with Batwa Pygmies to hammock-lazing, long picnics in the shade of acacia trees, and leisurely–or highly focused–game drives.
You alone can put a limit to how much adventure you can have in East Africa.
If a particular camp, specific safari theme (let’s say; cultural, wildlife, hiking, birding, landscape) entices you, we’ll make it happen for you. Some people go on safari in search of serenity and refreshment, and some seek adrenaline adventures. A Custom, private Safari can accommodate either or both approaches. Our experts will craft a safari that meets your interest and energy levels, day-by-day, hour-by-hour.
Our guaranteed-departure small-group safaris operate with the same deep dedication to service and comfort as our private Custom Safaris.
Group safaris are also a bountiful source of inspiration for your Custom Safari—in fact, this entire website is a grand grab bag of ideas for places to safari, lodges, camps, private villas, and lodges to luxuriate in, and activities to be astounded by.
For instance, you might look at the 12-day, 6-guaranteed-departures-a-year. One guest commented, “That looks great for my family, let’s do it,” turning the small group safari into your own private safari. Or you might want to tinker with the itinerary a bit or a lot. Our Custom Safari experts will work alongside you to create a customized itinerary that fits your needs exactly.
