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.

Top Uganda Attractions & Experiences

Top Uganda Experiences

    Coming face to face at close range with a band of mountain gorillas – and watching them interact with each other and, at times, with the human interlopers.

    Racing after a pack of playful chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park, which harbors the highest density of primates in the world.

    Visiting the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to see the only white rhinos in the wild left in Uganda.  

    Birding with more than 1,000 species, representing two-thirds of Africa’s avian population, filling Ugandan skies. (Watch for stork-like shoebills, wetland-loving wattled plovers, and crested cranes, whose images adorn the country’s coat of arms.)

     Meeting and mingling with Ugandans on their turf.  Despite grinding poverty, the majority go through life with warm and welcoming smiles.

    Being amazed by images of men, women and children walking along roads balancing large, heavy loads upon their heads.

    Watching as men ride, and sometimes push, bicycles or motorbikes laden with items ranging from household utensils and bags of cooking charcoal to live goats and cages of squawking chickens.

    Marveling at the mountain scenery in the Rwenzoris, Africa’s highest mountain range, that add to Uganda’s reputation as the Switzerland of Africa.

    Boating along the White Nile to the foot of Murchison Falls, which roars out of a narrow gap in the rocks to drop 140 feet below.

    Taking a guided game drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park in eastern Uganda in search of rare tree-climbing lions.

    Discovering the incredible beauty of remote Kidepo Valley National Park in northern Uganda, and having it mostly all to yourself except for the wildlife.

We had an amazing trip with Africa adventure vacations. We loved the guide Ceasar and communication with Robert and Ashiraf was outstanding.

The ultimate goal for this safari was chimp and gorilla tracking but also a wildlife safari in Murchison falls, queen Elizabeth and lake mburo national park was rewarding. If are to book this safari, please don't miss out the night game drives.

The lodges are super nice and blend with nature. Buffalo safari lodge was outstanding, the views, food and service was unmatched.

In short, we didn't regret booking with AAV

Our 10 days safari was amazing! Our guide Ceasar was just amazing (best guide ever!), thanks to him, we saw the big 5 and great primates. The experience was unforgettable.

Communication with Robert was so easy and always keen to answer any questions regardless of the time.

We highly recommend Africa Adventure Vacations, they are professional and we could not have expected better for our trip.

Hospitality was great plus its a nice place to connect with loved ones and family. The holiday met all expectations. The travel consultant followed my brief exactly. She considered that there were two different generations on tour and made sure both generations had a tailor made tour that suited them completely.
The safari was very enjoyable. The guide was fantastic. We enjoyed his company and his driving was unbelievable.

I came there 3 years ago and here is my experience. It is a beautiful place in Africa because it has a while of ecosytem there, especially Africa Chimps and Gorilla Trekking Safari. We can visit and take pitures with them to save our unforgetable memory. I wish I would travel there again

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!
