One thing you should be assured of as you plan your next holiday tour in Uganda is that you’re bound to have lots of fun. Because the country has plenty of attractions and activities that you can do, like going on game drives, visiting the different waterfalls, mountain climbing and tracking the mountain gorillas.
But even with the surety of enjoying yourself in the ‘Pearl of Africa,’ it helps to know certain things that can make your visit effortless and fabulous. So, here are five travel tips to make that happen:
Because doing so will ease the booking process for you as you’ll get one-stop service from cheaper air tickets to all-inclusive holiday packages. Plus, you’ll have the flexibility to make changes to your itinerary before departure and also make special requests to get window seats or vegan meals, unlike with online booking sites. Besides that, travel agencies like Travelcare offer after-sale services to ensure that you have a great time throughout your trip. And to guarantee the credibility of a company before making a booking, check out its reviews on TripAdvisor and verify that it’s a member of The Uganda Association of Travel Agents (TUGATA). Since the association demands that its members provide quality services and tours to clients and act with integrity.
You might end up not needing travel insurance during the safari, which is a good thing, but it’s best to be safe than sorry. Because no matter how many safety precautions you follow, you can never entirely rule out accidents from occurring. Or diseases from attacking you. Furthermore, make sure you’re conversant with the travel insurance’s coverage to avoid getting shocked upon making a claim.
Since Uganda straddles the equator, its weather is unpredictable even in the dry seasons, so you’ll have to pack clothes suitable for both the hot and cold weather. And on top of packing appropriate clothes, you need to pack other essentials to make your trip enjoyable.
What to pack:
To ensure that you still have a great time on your holiday vacation even when things don’t go according to plan since tours are at times unpredictable. For instance, you might fail to see some animals because they’re elusive, like the leopards, and have your itineraries changed due to unforeseen reasons like heavy rains and impassable roads. Even your desired accommodation could get booked up and you’re checked into an alternative, but rest assured that it will be up to the same standard as the previously requested one.
These precautions are there for a reason – to keep you safe, and you can only ignore them at your peril. So if your guide advises you to stay in the car or to keep quiet in certain areas, please do. Because they know what they’re talking about.
