A hotel on a Ugandan trip- Usually, all safaris begin with proper planning and budgeting, and this is true for every destination. In Uganda, you must budget for each and every aspect of the trip in order to have the full memorable safari experience. We all understand that accommodation is the central park of tourism, and therefore, it would be hard for us to travel and spend the night at our destination without budgeting for accommodation.

As a matter of fact, accommodation facilities are also one of the reasons why certain visitors opt to visit a particular destination over others. In Uganda, there are several lodges and hotels, some of which are luxurious lodges, others midrange, while others offer services on a budget and campsites as well. The class of accommodation facility will be determined by you, the traveler, and your budget. With this, the Uganda safari trip becomes so much more important. Some of the travelers who arrive in Uganda through the Entebbe international airport may decide to have a hotel rest or an overnight in Kampala or Entebbe before they embark on their main safari destination. Except for the Lake Mburo National Park, most Uganda safari parks are located far from the city center.

A few hotels in Kampala where you can stay before and after your safari include the Serena Hotel, Fairway hotel, forest cottages, Sheraton hotel, Munyonyi resort hotel, among others. These will be arranged depending on your travel expert.

After an enjoyable stay in Kampala, the visitors will now be driven to their lodges near or within the national parks. These national parks with wonderful lodges include Murchison Falls National Park, Bwindi Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, or any other Uganda national park or safari destination. All of these have all the types of accommodation and hotel facilities that travelers would like to use on safari, with very excellent service and Ugandan-welcoming staff that will assist them.

It is not difficult to reserve a hotel room for one’s stay in Uganda during a safari. The majority of hotels in Uganda have reservation offices that guests can contact directly to reach them and book their accommodations ahead of time. The reservation staff will help you learn more about their offers and availability so that you can book your lodging based on their availability and the type of offer you want to experience while on your Uganda safari.

The visitors can also book their accommodations through tour companies who will arrange their Uganda safaris and all other essential arrangements. The benefit of booking with a firm is that they have negotiated lower rates with the hotel, which will save the traveler money over booking directly with the hotel and paying the rack rate. Our Uganda safari packages always include the hotel that the tourist will use throughout his safari stay, and they book with us the wonderful safari, which is so much more interesting and wonderful to have the comfortable accommodation stay.

As you book the Uganda hotel during the safari, you should as well consider the cost of the hotel. Usually, in the off season, Uganda safari hotels go even farther to offer lower prices to guests, particularly group travelers visiting Uganda for a safari vacation. This is being done in order to encourage more tourists to visit Uganda and stay with them.

As a result, we recommend people travel during the off-season to save money and take advantage of special deals from safari lodges and tour operators. Although the peak season, also known as the dry season, drives up hotel accommodation prices, it is the perfect time for a Uganda safari adventure because roads are passable and hiking to see the mountain gorillas is easier due to the lack of rain.

Hotel rates are high because of high demand from numerous people. However, during the low season or off season, few travelers visit Uganda and hotel occupancy is low, resulting in low rates to allow safari hotels to survive until the peak season begins.

Therefore, you should prepare accordingly for the better hotel services during a safari in Uganda and please endeavor to contact us for more details.
