When to go?

The 17 day Uganda safari adventure is available all round. However, who ever is interested in taking part in this tour package is advised to book in advance because;

  • The demand for gorilla permits is very high throughout the year, and the number of permits available per day is limited. This means, booking in advance secures your gorilla trek by securing your gorilla permit(s).
  • When you book early enough, you have a chance to bargain on accommodations for a better price. You have high chances to get good accommodation, because, the best lodges are booked first.
  • If you are booking through Travel Agents, still you have high power to bargain for better rate. If you are taking a self-drive tour, you have high power to bargain on car rental services.
