Uganda primate safari and wildlife holiday
Description of Uganda primate safari and wildlife holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetDuring this trip, you will be visiting different national parks. Park entry fees and fees paid for the activities to Uganda Wildlife Authority will be supporting conservation efforts of Uganda Wildlife Authority, a conservation body to protect all wild animals, birds and vegetation in and around the national parks
You will visit Murchison Falls National Park which is Uganda's biggest conservation body, Kibale National park also known as the primate capital of the world and popular for chimpanzee trekking safaris and bird watching, Queen Elizabeth National park for a boat safari and wildlife game drive, Bwindi Impenetrable National park for the mountain gorillas and Lake Mburo National Park.
You are not allowed to litter the national parks with any rubbish, plastic bottles, food among others. Some animals can feed on them and this can affect their well being. Anything you want to dispose off should be given to your safari guide to dispose off appropriately.
PeopleDuring gorilla tracking, we highly recommend that you hire services of a porter to help support you during your gorilla trek. The money is paid directly to the porter and this money is used to support their families and paying school fees for their children.
During the trip, you will have stopovers at different craft shops so as to buy souvenirs directly from the local people so that they can afford basic needs. You will also get to interact with the local people and learn about their ways of life, a word or two in their language and culture.
You will stay at accommodations that employ the local people from the communities and buy food from the local people thus supporting them financially. Most of the materials used to build these lodges are sourced locally as well.
A pre-departure guide is always given to each one of our travelers signing up for this trip. This highlights the dos and donts while on safari, culturally appropriate dress code and behavior, how to tip your safari and site guides among others.
