Uganda gorilla safari and Murchison Falls holiday
Description of Uganda gorilla safari and Murchison Falls holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
Vegetarian, vegan and other dietary requirements can be catered to on this trip. Let us know any requirements when booking and we will work with the hotels and lodges to ensure suitable meals are provided for you.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOn arrival you’ll receive a complimentary fold-able and re-usable silicone drink bottle. You can re-fill this for free at all the lodges on this itinerary with certified safe drinking water. In your welcome pack you’ll find a detailed list outlining where each lodge sources their drinking water to avoid buying it in single-use plastic bottles.
Any plastic you do use on your trip, you can keep in the trip vehicle to deposit at our recycling point on the Uganda equator.
You’ll see we keep your printed trip documentation down to the essentials, all presented in your very own recycled-paper dossier which has been hand-crafted by a local community group.
We contribute $15 per person from your trip which is donated to the Banana Tree Wildlife Sanctuary that works to rescue and rehabilitate animals trapped or injured outside of the National Parks in the West of Uganda. If you are interested in this project we’d be happy to tell you more about it.
Unfortunately there’s no avoiding the use of aircraft or safari vehicles to enjoy this trip as we’ve presented it. However we do take care to design our routes to minimise both drive times for your convenience and hence reduce on fuel use and subsequent emissions.
PeopleWe are a Ugandan grass-roots company, the fee you pay for your trip goes entirely into the Ugandan economy and on to the all the lodges and suppliers we use, all of which are Ugandan companies/individuals as well.
Other trips will tell you they are “proud to work with a great supplier in Uganda”. We are one of those suppliers – there is no portion of your trip fee that goes towards paying office rent at a trendy location in UK, Europe or North America – it all goes to Uganda.
Tourism here is one of the largest and more consistent employers, by supporting our industry you are supporting livelihoods of families all across the country. All of our safari guides are Ugandan nationals whom we have known personally for many years.
We don’t believe in staged community visits – but if you have a special interest or wish to get a feel for local life, please let us know and we’ll endeavour to arrange it in the most authentic and non-obtrusive way possible.
With the exception of a very small number of international brands in the capital city Kampala – every restaurant you eat at, lodge you sleep in and shop that you purchase anything in is Ugandan owned. Every shilling you spend on your trip will in some way benefit the recipient.
