How many days do I need to see Uganda

Visiting Uganda?  How many days are needed?


Lonely Planet has declared Uganda as the best country to visit in 2012 and now you want to plan a trip to Uganda – you want to visit the pearl of Africa. The question that arises amongst other is  “how many days to Uganda-how-many-Daysdo I need to get the most out of my visit to Uganda?  Uganda is a small country – in fact it is Africa condensed into a small country – it is still however a country with many things to do and see , one needs sit down and ask oneself what do I want to see and do in Uganda?  You do not have to do it yourself – you can engage the free services of a reputable tour operator who would love introducing you to Uganda via a tailor made safari suited for you- your pocket book, your time constraints and what you want to do or see the most and not someone simply trying to sell you a package that may not even interest you.

If you want to experience Uganda – without distractions then a private safari is your best choice – you set the number of days – the kind of things that interest you such as Gorilla Tracking, Chimpanzee Tracking-wildlife parks, but also you can add such off the map things for most visitors to Uganda as cultural visits – hiking the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon – an awesome experience but as said off the map for most visitors to Uganda.

How many days for you to see Uganda?  I write up a lot of 14 day Safaris – 2 weeks in Uganda – the first day is usually arrival say and most arrive in the evening and tour operators such as Kabiza Wilderness Safaris pick you up at the airport and take you to a lodging facility in Entebbe or Kampala – so day 1 has evaporated and now you have 13 days in the Pearl of Africa-giving you enough times to visit the major parks, experience Uganda at its best.

Most of the parks are in the Southwest and Northwestern regions of Uganda along the Western (Albertine) Rift Valley – along this Western Rift Valley are some of Uganda’s treasure – very special parks where you can experience Authentic Africa – Africa as you have imagined it to be but only better.  Along the Western Rift Valley – the only park that takes a bit longer to drive between is Murchison Falls Park and that park should be on everyone’s must visit and the drive can be broken by staying down in the Western Rift Valley at Kabwoya Wildlife Reserve – the views alone as you come down the steep escarpment  are worth a stay.

How many days?  It depends on you – some simply want to visit the gorillas – not knowing what they are missing in Uganda – Uganda is far beyond an African safari add-on – it is a prime African destination with activities found in no other East African Country – others visit the gorillas and combine it with Queen Elizabeth Park and its wildlife and the chimpanzees of Kyambura Gorge.

How many days in Uganda – the more the better for your experience of the pearl of Africa- but since our safaris are custom designed – you give us the days and we weave together a tapestry that reflects your wishes and desires…from lovely Kampala…jon
