2 weeks in Uganda holiday
Description of 2 weeks in Uganda 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.
Planet1. Wildlife in Uganda is protected by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Most of this tour will be spent in the conservation areas protected by the UWA. We partner with UWA by ensuring our clients visit the parks and conservation fees are paid. Part of the money paid for entrance and activities in the park is given to communities surrounding the parks which they use on projects of interest. We also often include a visit to the communities adjacent to the parks to ensure they benefit directly and therefore join in conservation. Bigodi village walk near Kibale national park and the Twin lakes walk near Queen Elizabeth national park.
2. The travelers are reminded to be mindful of water usage to avoid wastage. Most of the lodging we use harvest rain water or uses underground water. Travelers are encouraged not to waste water. The lodges also use solar power to heat up the water used for showers.
People1. We employ guides from the communities we work in. We pay fair wages to them which allows them to provide for their families and keeps them interested in working in the tourism sector. We open up opportunities for exposure to new communities therefore broadening their skills and confidence. Sometimes a guide has not visited a particular area in the country which can limit their employability opportunities, we allow them to travel along a senior guide and learn therefore increasing their chances.
2. We encourage visits to communities and homesteads along the tourism route. On this safari, you will visit the Ik community on Mt Murongole. This community is separated from the rest of the surrounding tribes with difficulty in cultivation because of nature of the their land. Tourism is a big component in their survival because money paid goes into buying food for the families. You will visit the amazing Bigodi village near Kibale forest which has interacted with the chimpanzee for years and helped in their conservation. All these ensure that dollars directly go to the pockets of communities.
