Plan your Safari in Uganda for 2023 – while Gorilla Permits and the best Lodges are still available
How to Plan your Safari in Uganda for 2023: It is time to plan your Safari. Most have taken that lifetime trip because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the War in Ukraine, and the resulting worldwide inflation. It is time to take a break from it all on an African Safari.
There is no other 2023 safari destination where you can combine Gorillas, chimpanzees, and Big-5 Wildlife. Both the Equator and the historic River Nile run through the country.
try. You can spend a while on the White Nile at its source in Africa’s Adrenaline Pumping Adventure Capital, Jinja. Additionally, you can spend a while on the Nile in Murchison Falls Park, where the Nile tumbles down the Western Rift Escarpment, and nature has created the most powerful waterfall in the world. At Murchison Falls Park, you can enjoy the longest River in the world while taking a wildlife boat cruise, sunrise breakfast cruise, or sundowner cruise with snacks, wine, or other libations.
As we approach 2023, many have an urge to travel, which has been regulated and restricted since 2019 by government mandates and lockdowns, some of which continue in nations such as China to this day. The Wanderlust spirit has been repressed and subdued and 2023 is the year of Uhuru, the Swahili word for Freedom. In 2023 you are free to discover Uganda by exploring the Pearl of Africa from the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon to the tropical Ssese Island Archipelago on Lake Victoria.
We look forward to assisting you as we jointly Plan your Safari in Uganda for 2023
As you Plan your Safari in Uganda for 2023-Here is what awaits you in the Pearl of Africa:
This is what Kabiza Wilderness Safaris offers you as you Plan your Safari in Uganda. Things that the discerning African Traveler is looking for. Travelers’ tastes have changed since 2019; the information below reflects those changes.
1. Genuine African Wilderness Experiences:
After years of log cabin fever, there is a hunger for wide-open spaces. Uganda offers that its ten national parks are operating at a lower capacity than before the pandemic.
Uganda offers the one-of-a-kind African Wilderness up-close encounters with primates and gorillas
Travelers looking for. Gorilla, Chimpanzee Trekking Encounters, or more time with the primates’ habituation experiences. There are game drives, nature walks, and hikes where you can see abundant wildlife and birds in scenic parks.
Uganda offers a variety of wilderness experiences ranging from nocturnal jungle walks to Volcano Climbs. Discover Africa’s tallest Mountain Range, the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon. See the most powerful waterfall in the world as you ride a wildlife boat up the River Nile. Explore Africa as it used to be on Safari, spending a few days in the remote Kidepo Valley National Park.
Winston Churchill was quite enthused about his time on Safari in Uganda, “For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is truly “the Pearl of Africa.” Uganda is Big-7 Safari Destination. Here you can see the “Big-5” plus Mountain Gorillas and Chimpanzees, which makes it the “Big-7.”
2. enjoy the freedom of a Private Safari with a Local:
The 2023 traveler does not want to be in a vehicle with a group. Though in self-isolation for months, a private safari is preferred over a scheduled group safari with many other participants. Private Safaris gives our clients the power of choice, which far outweighs the slightly higher cost.
Private Safaris means that you are in control. You, not a tour operator, choose the dates for the safari. You choose the activities that you want. Your game drives are without anyone else. You select the lodges and hotels for your safari.
You can even choose a private gorilla trek where there is just you and the rangers that lead your gorilla trek. A private Safari with us gives you control, and you are not herded along as on a scheduled group safari.
Along with the wish for a private safari, the post-COVID traveler on safari prefers to be away from the crowds. Uganda fulfills that wish in most cases. Uganda is an off-the-beaten tourist path. Africa is as it used to be, especially in the remote Kidepo Valley National Park.
3. Experience Authentic Cultural Interactions:
The 2023 Traveler wants safe, meaningful, and authentic cultural interactions. The staged villages one often encounters on safaris elsewhere are not what is wanted. The emphasis is on authenticity.
There are the Karamojong, fierce Warrior- Pastoralists who were disarmed, the area was secured, and today is safe to travel. The region is also home to one of the most remote and unvisited parks in East Africa, Kidepo Valley Park. However, the park has received all kinds of accolades, including one of the Best Park on the continent, by the Wanderlust Movement. Rated the number three Park on the Continent by CNN, it has less than ten new visitors enter it each day, and on a game drive or hike, you will encounter no other people than the abundant and varied wildlife found here.
Other people groups found here, such as the Ik People who live on the extinct Volcano, Mount Morungole. There is no road, only a path; visiting them will take a whole day. The views of the Mountains and the Rift Valley are breathtaking. Still, the authentic experience begins as you enter one of the villages of 11,000 remaining Ik, communities without stores, without most semblances of modernity, where the Bride’s Price are Beehives.
In the southwest corner of the country are the Batwa people. They were the first people in the forest and lived here for thousands of years before other tribes migrated to their area. They were hunters and gatherers who left a low ecological footprint behind. They built no permanent structures but moved with the seasons. Today they are conservation refugees. They are allowed to lead tourists back into the forest to demonstrate their ancient ways.
4. Experience Quality rather than Quantity:
The Post-COVID-19 Traveler is seeking memorable quality experiences rather than quantity. Some want to pack in as much as they can into a day. I have met tourists who wanted to see Murchison Falls, the most powerful waterfall. They took a picture and were ready to leave. They post pictures on Facebook or Instagram and tell their friends that they have been there.
That is like dipping your toes into the River Nile and then saying that you went swimming in the Nile. The quality of the experience is more important than the quantity. At the end of the safari, they are exhausted and need a vacation.
There are well-meaning tour operators that offer one-day gorilla trekking Safaris. Quality is taking the time to prepare yourself for the trek. On the day of the trek, as you encounter a gorilla family in the wild, savor the experience, which many have said is life-changing. That evening as you take your safari sundowner enjoying a sunset over Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, reflect on the day.
Time in Africa is not based on tasks and activities but on relationships. There is nothing like sharing your gorilla encounter around a campfire at your lodge.
5. Stay at Smaller Quality Accommodations:
Amazingly as the pandemic is subsiding, travelers are drawn to smaller, quality lodges. They want to stay away from large hotels and lodges and are choosing boutique accommodations instead. We have done that for years and only use larger hotels and motels when there are no alternatives.
Today, African Travelers want smaller and better quality lodges where they have space and privacy. They do not wish to have a lodge with thirty or more rooms but prefer a smaller one where they are not a room number but a person with a name.
We choose Safari lodges where meals are served that you can look forward t. Where creativity is the rule of the. Where vegetarians and vegans are welcomed. Lodges that can meet the needs of those looking for lodges that serve Halal-friendly meals.
We have found that the safari experience includes the lodges you stay at. We choose the ones that offer a bed but become part of the safari tapestry, your experience. We also find that mid-range and luxury lodges meet travelers’ expectations.
The quality of your room, the lodge’s feel, the meals served, and the level of service offered is what we use as our criteria. Lodges with 34/7 security since your well-being are always on our minds.
6. Go on a Sustainable Eco-Tourism Friendly Safari:
Those in the Uganda tourism sector must find a way to maintain tourism long-term without harming natural and cultural environments. Sustainable travel is about valuing the ground and looking after our natural resources. That is what the Post-COVID-19 discerning traveler wants.
Without Gorilla Tourism, the mountain gorillas’ habitats would have gone twenty years ago. Without Gorilla Tourism, the number of gorillas would have declined. Instead, because of sustainable Gorilla Tourism, they have increased. 2020 saw an unprecedented gorilla baby boom in both Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park.
Sustainable Tourism is ingrained into the minds of those that surround the parks. The Uganda Wildlife Authority shares 20% of park entrances with the local community. Reasons that the Elephant and the Rothschild giraffe population has dramatically increased.
Sustainable Eco-Tourism provides meaningful and better-paying jobs causing more to preserve the environment for future generations.
7. Enjoy Flexibility in Booking and our Price Grantee:
