Many travelers don’t feel comfortable to travel in group with people you have never meet or been friends with for some time but it’s a great experience that lowers travel expenditures as well as well as creating new friends across the globe. Imagine booking a group tour with someone from your next travel destination. It’s indeed an opportunity in disguise and it’s amazing if the person heads home direct after the joint group trip.
Today many travelers have been able to fulfill their travel dreams by joining group trips especially trips that are costly. Uganda has one costly adventure that’s gorilla trekking in either Bwindi forest or Mgahinga national park and travelers used to postponed their gorilla trekking trips due to fear of costs. However, the many gorilla group tours that run every day to Bwindi forest National Park have simplified life for whoever feels like tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda any time of the year.
Gorilla group tours are commonly organized in April, May and November turn out cheap compared to those organized in the other months of the year since gorilla permits cost only $450. I think it’s the best time for those planning to track mountain gorillas on budget in Uganda the pearl of Africa.
Only eight people make up a group gorilla safari to Bwindi Forest National Park and travelers are free to place in their booking with their travel dates and then wait for others to join them. If you find other members already booked in, then you have to adjust your travel dates to theirs so that you move together and experience the lifetime wildlife encounter as a team. If you make eight in number, you can track your own habituated gorilla family without any other person being added to the group. Meeting mountain gorillas in a group of friends in exciting especially if done with friends and workmates. Think of spending a scenic 8-9hours drive with friends, making multiple stops on the way for photography and memory capture. Later share a lodge, hotel or campsite room and spend good time at leisure discussing the needful. Mornings for of gorilla trekking are again more incredible because, you get ready together, have breakfast, pack drinking water and lunch boxes before heading to the park headquarters for briefing. The foot nature walk inside the wild jungle forest with some hikes is more fun looking at fellow friends sweet up as you get close to the unique forest primates of the day. After the encounter you can have lots of stories and memories to cherish together even after you have parted back home.
Other group tours in Uganda organized second to Uganda gorilla safaris are wildlife safaris to Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo valley National Park and Queen Elizabeth National park. Many travelers enjoy them and only cost $300 US dollars for a maximum of three days. A lot can be seen and experience including the big five, waterfalls, hippos, crocodiles, chimpanzees and other primates.
Each day on safari is a series of spontaneous, unexpected, natural events keeping everyone happy and focused. One never knows which game animals or wondrous sights one will witness but all comes by surprise once you get to the park. On Uganda wildlife trips encounters include a family of elephants moving with young ones, Lions looking for bites, chimpanzees playing in tree branches, Baboons relaxing on roadsides, Hippos raising heads to feel the sun warmth, crocodiles chilling in water and many more, Every wild animal plays a specific role that will turn your Uganda wildlife safari into memories. Good to search for available group tours in line with your interest and travel dates and enjoy every moment of your Uganda safari upcoming holiday. You can look for great deals from tour operators organizing group tours.
