Uganda small group safaris

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

The two best Uganda small group safaris for 2024.


With so many attractions Uganda to choose from, planning and organising a safari can be difficult even daunting. Some questions are pretty straight foward to answer like where to start and end a safari or how many days should a safari last. The more challenging questions revolve around how many activities can you fit into a day or the best way to combine multiple activites to get the best out of visiting a specific region. With all this in mind Let's Go Travel have created two quintisensially Uganda Small Group Safaris that take out all the hassle of planning a safari.

The 11 Day Small Group Safari and the 8 Day Small Group Safari have been specifically desinged to give a traveller the very best experience of Uganda by offering a balance between particitpating in activities and excursions as well as time to relax and appreciate the surroudings and atmosphere. This balance is important as sometime the tendency is to pack too much into a safari.


How do Small Group Safaris work?

Let's Go Travel have scheduled one 11 Day safari and one 8 Day safari every month. However for the departure to take place there needs to be a minimum of 2 confirmed passengers on one of the safaris.

Once there are two people confirmed on a safari, that departure is guaranteed and will go ahead. Click HERE and scroll to the bottom of the page to see which dates have guaranteed departures so far in 2024.

The11 Day Small Group Safari gives you the best chance of seeing the BIG 5 in Uganda. This is because of the visit to Ziwa Rhino Sancturary which is the only place in Uganda where you can see wild rhino. If you are lucky by the end of Day 3 you may have seen the BIG 5 as Murchison Falls National Park is home to Lion, Leopard Buffalo and Elephant. But don't worry if you don't see a Leopard in Murchinson Falls you get one more chance when you visit Lake Mburo National Park towards the end of the safari.

The 8 Day Small Group Safari is the best way to experience the marquee activities of Gorilla Trekking and Chimpanzee Trekking whilst also getting to see a little bit of what else Uganda has to offer. The inclusion of two savannah national parks into the itinerary give you an oppurtunity to turly experience the diversity of climate, terrain and wildlife that Uganda has. There are not may places in the world where savanah grasslands and thick jungle can be inlucded in the same safari.


Final thoughts

Uganda is famous for alot of wildlife, scenery and adventure attractions however, we are sure that despite all those breath-taking attractions it is The People of Uganda that make this country the wonderful destination that it is.
