If you’re passionate about exploring new destinations and have your heart set on visiting Uganda, simply continue reading to discover a few tips on how to plan a fun-filled, adventurous trip to Uganda. Which is often referred to as the pearl of Africa.
How to plan your Uganda adventure:
- Be sure to fit a gorilla tracking experience into your action-packed trip
Many tourists who visit Uganda list their favorite experience as tracking wild mountain gorillas through Uganda’s lush jungle terrain, with the aid of an experienced, knowledgeable guide. So if you’re interested in learning about gorillas behavior, it’s well worth Gorilla Trekking in Uganda as a unique experience.
One national park which offers such an experience is the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which happens to boast half the world’s population of mountain gorillas.
- Visit at least one national park on your Ugandan trip of a lifetime
If you plan on booking a safari experience in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle, it’s well worth visiting at least one of Uganda’s ten national parks. As an example, if you’d love to be lucky enough to spot a wild lion, you may want to consider booking an escorted safari tour which explores the highly rated Queen Elizabeth National Park. Which is known for its prides of lions.
However, if your schedule permits it, it’s definitely well worth visiting a handful of Uganda’s national parks. Some of which offer stunning hiking tracks, which are well worth exploring. Just be sure not to research hiking tracks to ensure that they are safe from wild animals before heading out on an adventurous hike!
- Consider treating yourself to a few luxurious experiences, which you’ll never forget
As Uganda offers incredible value for money, it’s well worth treating yourself to a couple of affordable luxury experiences on your trip. As examples, you may be interested in booking a private safari tour in an air-conditioned four by four vehicle, which will give you the best possible chance of spotting your top 3 animals. Or you may be interested in booking a glamping experience, under the stars! If you’ve never been in a hot air balloon before, you may also be tempted to book an early morning hot air balloon ride over a national park. In order to spot a wide variety of wild animals from a bird’s eye view!
- Be sure that you’re up to date with your vaccinations before you board a flight to Uganda
While traveling around Uganda is fairly safe, it’s still worth talking to your GP to see whether or not you’re due for any shots to prevent contracting preventable diseases such as malaria. It’s also well worth taking health and safety precautions such as carrying malaria tablets on your trip to Uganda and making sure only to drink bottled water whilst you explore all the amazing sites and attractions which Uganda has to offer.
So if you love exploring the great outdoors and are a self-confessed animal lover, it’s well worth organizing your trip to Uganda today.
