Safari-lodging-tipsSafari Lodging Tips and Advice in Uganda:

If you look at many itineraries on-line and if you checked lodging facilities that were selected for you, the quality would often be what I would call abysmal, even when it comes to budget facilities we only use better budget facilities that in most cases they have self-contained rooms.  Lodging is an important aspect of your safari in Uganda and we do not take it lightly.  If our clients complain about a lodging accommodation facility – our response – it goes off our list and we remove our recommendation of it  from our website. We feel that if you are staying in a substandard accommodation it takes away from your overall safari experience in Uganda.
