Choosing travel agencies and tour operators in Uganda Africa is not easy, you should look for a genuine company with experiences, good price among others. We give are here to give you some of the best tips to base on while choosing a best company to travel with in Uganda or any other African travel destination
We will always recommend visitors looking for best travel agencies and tour operators to make use of travel platforms such as Trip advisor, safari bookings among other to read what other travelers have written about a certain agency or tour operator to avoid landing in hands of fake tour agencies that may scam your deposit or even fail to provide the intended travel package.
Therefore, take your time and search for reviews of past clients who had a safari with the tour operator or travel agency you wish to deal with and if you see lot of negative reviews or reviews of clients claiming to be conned of money then we suggest you cross out such travel agencies or tour operators from your list.
In circumstances where a travel agency or operator has no or few reviews and you wish to take up their package, don’t be too quick to judge them however; inquire from AUTO about their credibility. So many travel agencies and tour operators are being set up by experienced tour and travel consultants and guides. Tourism industry in Uganda is expanding on a high gear consequently, experienced workers resort to starting up travel agencies and companies in Uganda and are able to provide the best safari experiences to the visitors.
Regarding payments, avoiding making deposits through personal bank accounts. We advise guests to make payments through travel agencies’ official bank accounts registered under their names. You can only make deposits through a personal bank account only if you trust a tour operator or agency otherwise, you may land in hands of a fraudster or a non-existent company.
The fact that travel agencies and tour operators need to be first registered and incorporated before getting a company bank account is enough to clarify that the agency is genuine and may be the right company to deal with.
The most convenient and trusted way of making payments for your safari to travel agencies in Uganda is through direct wire transfer (EFT – Electronic Funds Transfer) to the company’s account.
However, several tour operators support credit card transfer by using point of sale machines, Pesapal and Direct Pay Online payment solutions. Pesapal and Direct Pay Online are registered platforms that helps you secure your payment by credit card at a small surcharge per transaction.
These platforms only deal with registered travel agencies and tour operators in Uganda and usually ask for company registration documents before rendering online payment solutions to respective companies hence they are so worthy of trusting.
When booking a safari to Uganda through travel agencies or tour operators expect to experience the very best of Uganda through a number of safari activities. However, Uganda tour packages are always customized to the best of visitors’ desires. Below are some of activities you may not miss on your visit to Uganda and East African travel destinations
Equator Visit: This is one the most carried out activities by visitors on their Uganda safari and tour. Most trips go to western Uganda and in the process, guests pass by the Equator for photography and water experience.
Mountain gorilla Trekking: Without any doubts, Uganda is the best destination in Africa to encounter mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Mountain gorilla trekking is done from Bwindi impenetrable national park and Mgahinga gorilla national park. However; some guests may opt to track gorillas in Rwanda’s Volcanoes national park and Virunga national park in DR. Congo. Therefore, this activity can be done in only three countries in Africa
Wildlife Viewing: Safaris and tours in Uganda and Africa are mostly done in savannah national park through game drives. Such parks include Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park and Lake Mburo national park. Expect to encounter a number of animals including the big 5. Safaris in such parks may go a slow as $200 per person depending on the number of a days and group size.
Chimpanzee Trekking: From the guests’ point of view, chimp trekking is second highly demanded activity in Uganda after gorilla tracking. Most travel agencies and tour operators incorporate this activity in their travel itineraries for magical everlasting experiences. Chimpanzee trekking is done in Kibale forest national park and it’s regarded as the capital of primates due to high concentration of different primate species. Other destinations include; Kalinzu forest and Kyambura gorge in Queen Elizabeth national park
Launch Trips / Boat Trips: Visitors explore both aquatic animals and solitary terrestrial animals at the banks of different water bodies. Best launch trips and boat cruises are done on Kazinga channel in Queen Elizabeth national park and at the bottom of river Nile falls in Murchison falls national park. Other destinations for this activity include Lake Bunyonyi, River Nile in Jinja and Lake Mburo national park.
Birding: This activity can be done in most of the protected areas in Uganda. During bird watching activity, you will spot a number of bird species such as; Shoe bill, Bar-tailed Trogon, Red-throated Alethe, Chapin’s Flycatcher, Red-faced Woodland Warbler, Black-faced Rufous Warbler, Grauer’s Warbler, Black Bee-Eater, White-headed Wood-hoopoe, Tinkerbirds and Barbets, Bocage’s Bush-shrike, Luhder’s Bush-shrike, Pink-footed Puffback, Petit’sCuckooshrike, Starlings, Black-billed Weaver, Woodpeckers, African Broadbill, assorted Greenbuls, White-bellied Robin-Chat, Short-tailed Warbler, Oberlander’s Ground Thrush ,Mountain Masked Apalis, Brown-capped weaver among other birds
Golden Monkey Trekking: Apparently, Uganda is the best destination to spot golden monkeys in Mgahinga gorilla national park however, some travel agencies may sell Volcanoes national park in Rwanda for the same activity. Golden monkey trekking permit goes for $100 and it is exclusive of park entrance fees.
Nature / Community Walks / Cultural Visits: Uganda has a diversity of cultures each with unique practices and traditions. Explore the Baganda culture, Karamajongs, Bakiga among others through music, dance and drama. Some guests go an extra mile of going through the processes of yogurt and ghee making. All these activities commemorate your visit to Uganda and East Africa at large.
Batwa Trail: This experience will grant you an encounter with the Batwa Pygmies in Bwindi or Mgahinga. Other parts to explore Batwa are Lake Bunyonyi, Semuliki national park, Bundibugyo among others. These Pygmies still live an ancient life of relying on forests as their major source of earning a living through harvesting fruits and game hunting for food despite the change in the world.
White Water Rafting: This is an exciting adrenal adventure done on Itanda Falls on river Nile in Jinja. This is one of adventures you may never forget easily on your visit to Uganda.
Bungee Jumping: This is also carried out from Jinja and It’s also another activity for brave guests at Itanda falls in Jinja on River Nile. It may be a short trip to undertake while in Uganda.
Quad Biking / Horse Bark Riding: These two activities can be carried out in Jinja and Lake Mburo National Park however, we highly recommend to have it in Lake Mburo national park because the trail takes you through tracks with wild animals such as Zebras, Uganda Kobs and giraffes. What an experience for a family and honeymooners!
City Tours: These are recommended on arrival day or end tour. Guests tend to visit major cultural, historical and entertainment centers such as Kabaka’s palace, Ndere cultural center, Museum, Namugongo among other.
Mountaineering / Mountain Hiking: Most travel agencies and tour operators organize hiking experiences to Mount Rwenzori and Elgon in Uganda. However other exciting hiking spots include mount Kirisimbi, mountan Bisoke, mount sabinyo and mountain Nyiragongo in DR. Congo
Sipi Falls Hike: These Falls are located in Kapchorwa district and remain among the most beautiful creations in eastern Uganda. The hike is quite adventurous and will require you to travel in vehicles as you trek on feet at the same time.
