How To Plan The Best 2021-2022 Private & Custom Safari For Uganda?

When planning a safari holiday in Uganda, many guests look forward to taking a break from the crowds of urban living and immersing themselves in the tranquility of nature. If you are in search of a relaxing wilderness getaway where you can go on safari activities for times that fit your schedule, let your tour consultant at AfricanMecca Safaris know of your custom or private travel preference. We will organize a bespoke adventure in some of the most gorgeous parks of Uganda, where the only sounds will include the calls of birds and animals, the rustling of the breeze in the trees, or the flowing of streams, waterfalls, and rivers.

Whether you are a couple on a honeymoon safari, a loving twosome celebrating a long and happy married life, a family with kids requiring a private safari villa, nap times adjusted to the family safari game drives, and special meals, or a wildlife photographer or a birding enthusiast planning tours around the best light and action, custom and private safaris are perfect for you. We will take time to understand your purpose for visiting Uganda and the kind of experiences you want, and then arrange your safari vacation accordingly. Rest assured that we also keep budgetary constraints in mind to plan the perfect adventure within your means.

Key Takeaways

  • Wilderness getaway where guests can choose safari activities according to preferred schedules
  • Utter tranquility with only the calls of bird and land animals, gentle breezes, and flowing streams
  • Suitable for honeymooners, couples, families with kids, and wildlife enthusiasts
  • Possibility of arranging customized vacations according to the kind of experiences you want
  • All tours organized according to guests’ budgetary constraints

How To Plan The Best Private & Custom Safaris For Uganda

1. What To Expect From A Private & Custom Safari Vacation In Uganda For 2021-2022?

Key Takeaways

  • Seamless logistics, including airport transfers, flight charters, destination travel, and 4x4 vehicle tours
  • Option of booking high-end luxury stays, private villas, bush houses, tented camps, and lodges
  • Selection of safari experiences like bush walks, game drives, bush walks, cultural tours, bird watching, aquatic activities - boating, canoeing, horseback riding, and more
Should you choose a private safari, we will arrange personal and exclusive use of 4x4 vehicles, small planes, or even helicopters to seamlessly transfer you between your points of arrival and your accommodations, or from one safari park to another. You can request high-end luxury accommodations throughout Uganda – ones offering chic living spaces, private kitchens, dining areas, and patios. Expect only the best service – perhaps with a dedicated guide, room staff, and butler – along with delectable meals cooked to suit your specific tastes and dietary requirements.

We will follow your instructions to deliver the African travel experience you’ve been dreaming of. Stay in a colonial-style home with a decor reminiscent of the romance of yesteryear, or perhaps a rustic accommodation that has homely functionality but offers the feel of living in a traditional village like experience with all the grandeur amenities and facilities of comfort and safety. Private villas, exclusive use bush houses and mobile camps, or chic like-minded accommodations that have a sense of purpose – we have them all.

We will also plan your activities in Uganda around your preferences, including gorilla safari in Bwindi and chimpanzee treks in Kibale, bush walks, game drive viewing, cultural tours, birdwatching, horseback riding, boating, fishing, canoeing, and river rafting, to name just popular excursions in Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls, Kidepo Valley, Jinja - Nile River, Semliki and Lake Mburo. Whenever and wherever possible, we will plan and confirm your safari booking according to your preferred timing and requirements.

2. Best Accommodation & Activities In 2021-2022 To Choose For Your Private & Custom Safaris In Uganda

Key Takeaways

  • Accommodations available according to the AfricanMecca Tier rating that gives an overview of expected experiences
  • Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, and Bwindi Lodge are our recommended Premier Tier 1 accommodations for gorilla safaris.
  • For a discerning accommodation and activities in a remote wilderness, we recommend Apoka Safari Lodge in Kidepo
If you are looking for a luxury stayover during your visit to Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, we’ve got you covered with high-end properties like Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, and Bwindi Lodge. Mid-range properties include Mahogany Springs and Buhoma Lodge.

In Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Kibale National Park, Mount Gahinga Lodge and Kyaninga Lodge, respectively, are excellent limited choices. We recommend the luxurious Kyambura Gorge Lodge in Queen Elizabeth National Park, while those seeking deluxe accommodations will love Ishasha Wilderness Camp on the banks of the Ntungwe River.

If you’re headed for Kidepo Valley National Park, Apoka Safari Lodge affords exclusivity and remoteness with no tourist crowd. In Murchison Falls National Park, opt for Baker’s Lodge or Nile Safari Lodge for a rustic grandeur safari experience.

If you intend to go on a gorilla trekking safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in southwestern Uganda, you must follow the regulations laid down by the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). The same applies to chimpanzee safaris in Kibale. As per their procedures, you will be a part of a group of eight guests assigned to a particular gorilla family and must follow the tour timings they set out. For all other excursions in most of the other parks, you can request schedules and activities that are most suitable for you. These options can include safari walks, forest hikes, birdwatching trips, cultural tours, game drives, boating, and various other activities.

EAST AFRICA SAFARI BOOKING & TOUR HOLIDAY IDEA UGANDA FOR 2021-2022

We recommend visiting Bwindi for your gorilla safari trek, and combining it with Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls, and Kibale (chimpanzee safari) alongside your city tour visits of Kampala and Entebbe.

You may optionally extend out to other wilderness areas such as Mgahinga to track down golden monkeys and gorillas in the same park, Jinja for whitewater rafting on the Nile River, and Semliki, Lake Mburo or Kidepo for an offbeat wildlife tour.

You can end your vacation on the beach at Lake Victoria or even extending out to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar or Lamu, or even Mombasa.
