Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

My friend and I went for a great 3-day trip to the South West of Uganda with Home to Africa in October 2020 to hike Mount Sabinyo. We planned the trip at short notice and Home To Africa was very responsive and quick in organising everything for us, including the required permit for the hike. Our guide-driver Karim drove us safely the long way to Kisoro and back and shared with us his vast knowledge about the Virunga volcanoes. During the hike to the three peaks of Mount Sabinyo we were accompanied by a group of very experienced ranger-guides. Reaching the third peak at 3669 metres and being in Uganda, Rwanda and DRC at the same time was an unforgettable experience. After a 9-hour hike we were glad to arrive back at our accommodation Travellers Rest in Kisoro where we enjoyed a hot shower, a delicious dinner and the hot-water bottles that were put in our beds so that we would not feel cold during the chilly night. Throughout the whole trip our driver-guide, the staff at Travellers Rest and the rangers at Mghahinga National Park adhered to all covid prevention measures (observed social distancing, were wearing face masks, performed temperature checks and regular sanitizing).
Thank you so much, Home To Africa, for organising this amazing and unforgettable trip for us!

Nasser was our guide/driver... a friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable man. He has been in the field long enough to know people, which was invaluable to our family on our first visit to this place.. magic! Our hotel.. you can't expect higher standard.. and great and plentiful food. Elias.. the boss.. also went above and beyond to make sure our Uganda experience went smoothly.
The only advice I can give: perhaps give yourself a day in the city to reorganize yourself before embarking on the journey. Don't bother to check any other safari company.. click directly on Home to Africa!
