Doing a Uganda or Rwanda tour by yourself ?


Do it your self tour
This is perceived by many to be an easy and cheap way to self organize a tour/safari.
Organizing a tour requires a lot of paper work which involves tailor making a safari, organizing transport to your destinations, selecting your suitable accommodations, looking for available accommodation and booking/paying for it, booking/paying for permits where applicable, locating your destinations if you have never been to these places.

Apart from that you will have to run around looking for transport, a map and permits if applicable, during this period you are bound to be conned in term of exchange rates or even hiked prices or fares.

Book your tour with the right tour operator and will have saved your self going through all that hassle and will only have to enjoy your dream safari without remorse. Such a Tour Operator will carry the burden of getting you Accommodation, Transporting to your Destination, designing your itinerary, providing you with an appropriate guide and make sure your tour is a total success.
