What travelers are saying

"We joined the Intrepid “Real Italy Food Tour” and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our tour guide, Micol, was very knowledgeable and provided us with lots of good information. It seems Micol knew many of the staff of the venues we visited, including the pasta making class we attended. Our group of 11 travelers was extremely compatible, which greatly added to the fun and enjoyment."

"We returned from our 13-day East African Explorer trip two weeks ago. The trip fully met our expectations. Everything was well organized, accommodations and food were excellent, safari drives were great. Our driver/guide in Kenya, Gitonga (aka Anderson) was excellent and enthusiastic. Based on our experience I can confidently say we will book another trip with SITA in the near future."

Uganda Tour Selection Trips

  • Be sure to book with a reliable licensed tour operator, especially if you want to see mountain gorillas. Experienced guides know where the gorillas are likely to be on any given day.
  • It can take up to six hours to find gorillas in the steep rainforest, making it a physically challenging expedition, with chimpanzees even more elusive..
  • Itineraries allowing multiple days for chances to find the gorillas and chimpanzees -- who are wild, after all -- will offer a more relaxed pace and insure you get the quality face/lens time you want with these magnificent cousins.
  • Permits to track mountain gorillas are expensive, so check to see if they’re included in the price of your safari to avoid unpleasant surprises.
  • Roads in Uganda can range from bad to worse.  Be prepared for back-twisting, neck-jarring rides -- and if you’re susceptible to motion sickness, take along some medication.
  • Accommodations can be comfortable but quite basic. A shower may mean hot water poured into a roof-top bucket which drips down upon you below.  Make sure your lodgings meet your minimum comfort level.
  • Because they operate on solar power, jungle lodges and tent camps may have limited – or no -- facilities for charging camera, computer or other types of batteries. Take along extras and keep them charged at every opportunity..
  • While Uganda’s climate is generally equatorial, it can change quickly at higher altitudes. Check the typical temperature range and rainfall where you’re going – then come prepared for unexpected changes.
  • Take along an adequate supply of prescription drugs and anything else that you will, or may, need for your health or comfort, because you may not find them in Uganda.
  • Kidepo National Park near the South Sudan border is remote enough to be one of Africa’s best kept secrets, with savannah, mountains, and lots of wildlife; not every guided trip goes there, so check your tour operator’s itinerary if it’s on your must-do list.
  • White water rafting on the White Nile can be an adrenaline blast, but it’s not offered on all itineraries; check different operators to see if their style is sedate cruising or action-oriented.

Packing List for Uganda
