The Fine Art of Safari Price Comparison in Uganda
Getting the Most Value for your Money-Comparing the Price of Safaris in Uganda
Comparing the Price of Safaris in Uganda. Many tourists planning a safari in Uganda focus on the price of a Safari, and what matters is the quality of the experience on a safari. Let us establish one thing, compared to travel elsewhere. An African Safari is not cheap anywhere on the continent.
In Africa, you have park entrance fees, activity fees for game drives, hikes, nature walks, and boat rides. Lodges tend to be smaller, and you pay more than you would for a hotel of similar quality in Europe or Asia. In Uganda, you have the Gorilla Permit and Chimpanzee Permit costs, which will drive up a safari price. Lastly, transport costs are higher in East Africa due to high fuel prices, vehicle acquisition, and maintenance costs.
Despite the above, you will find an advertisement for Cheap Safaris, Cheap Gorilla Safaris in Uganda. The word “Cheap” is instead a loosely used term. Rather than pursuing the “Cheap Safari” that is only a mirage, our suggestion looks for affordability and quality of experience.
You want Value, not cheap, that devalues your experience on a safari in the Pearl of Africa. When Comparing the Price of Safaris in Uganda, most look at the safari price, and they make decisions based on cost first. For lack of better words, that is often a costly mistake that visitors to Uganda make.
The right way to compare the Price of Safaris is by looking at the following:
- Are the same Lodges used?
- Are Permit Prices included in the price of the Safari?
- Is the Safari Full-Board or Bed and Breakfast?
- Is a quality Safari Vehicle used with non-tinted Windows and a Popup roof?
- Is this a private Safari or a Group Safari?
- Will you have unlimited Drinking Bottled Drinking Water?
The General Rule of Thumb in Comparing the Price of Safaris in Uganda should be, “if it sounds, looks too good to be true, it most likely is.” In Comparing Safaris, one other factor should be added to the equation.
Ensure that you agree to a Safari in Uganda offer made by a licensed Ugandan Tourism Board Tour Operator. Additionally, they should be a member of AUTO — the Association of Uganda Tour Operators since they have first access to Gorilla, the majority of Gorilla Permits.
Among the many legitimate Ugandan Tour Operators, a few fraudulent con-artists promised the sun, moon, and stars and delivered little or nothing. In 2019 several were arrested and dealt with firmly by the Tourism Police and the Uganda Tourism Board-Quality Control.
Our Advice When Comparing the Price of Safaris- Remember the Yugo!
When Comparing Safari Prices, it is good to remember the Yugo Principle, “Cheap Things are not Good, Good Things are not Cheap.” The Yugo was the World’s Cheapest Car, which gave its owners the most grief.
In Uganda, Cheap Things that break apart are called Fake or Zing-Zong Goods. Below, Standard Goods made in China, such as fake Nokia Phones, are authentic.
The last thing is a Zing-Zong Safari based purely on price. An African Safari is the trip of a lifetime for most, and saving a few hundred dollars is not worth sacrificing a better experience that gives you long-lasting memories.
Suppose you are coming to Africa to its Pearl, which is Uganda. In that case, you are coming to experience the African Wild on Safari and not deal with the logistical nightmares that a Self-Drive or budget, shoestring Safari has attached with them.
Go for a midrange or luxury Safari that gives you peace and mind. That seems to be the choice of most visitors to Uganda.

Comparing safari price quotations comes down to comparing apples with apples. Anybody can quote you a lower price, but most often that will end up with a compromise in the quality of your safari. Something that you do not realize until you are in Uganda on Safari.

If the competing quote that you give us manages to outdo ours – something that we doubt! Then we’ll beat it, ensuring you get your safari at the best price.
