8 day wildlife tour of Uganda
Description of 8 day wildlife tour of Uganda
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. We partner with UWA by ensuring our clients visit the parks and conservation fees are paid. 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 are some of the communities we often partner with.
2. Just like all our tours, we minimize trash on our safaris by encouraging travelers to reuse different materials. We provide/ encourage travelers to carry reusable water bottles. This is because we no longer buy the small disposable water cartons but rather the bigger bottles that then ensure minimum plastic and trash on our tours. Whatever rubbish generated while on safari must be retained in the car and safely disposed of by the driver guide.
PeopleOur guides are locals in the countries we work in. We also encourage them where applicable to get a site guide in the different areas they take our guests. For example when visiting the Batwa community, the driver naturalist guide need to get someone from that community instead of going to the homes directly. This helps with spreading the tourism dollar to many more people on the value chain.
2. We respect the local cultures of the communities we visit, we are not intrusive in our approach. We ask locals to let us know what is comfortable for them as far as bringing tourists into their villages, homes etc. We together make a trail for an experience they are comfortable with. We call ahead and plan everything based on the locals/hosts preferred times and activities and if for some reason they are not able to host us after prior confirmation, we inform the clients in time and choose a different activity.
