WHY DO YOU NEED TO HIRE A LOCAL GUIDE FOR A SAFARI IN UGANDA?

NEED TO HIRE A LOCAL GUIDE FOR A SAFARI IN UGANDA


An African safari would best be enjoyed by hiring local guide to take you through the magical adventure of the pearl of Africa driving through the country side of this landlocked country.

THIS IS WHY YOU NEED A GUIDE NOT A SELF DRIVE

Quick Planning;
Planning you trip with a local tour guide is the safest way for any traveler because of the unmatched expertise in the time taken to reach different destinations and the wider Knowledge of the country. Your only role as a traveler is to sit and relax after describing to the local guide the kind of trip you would like to have. The guide will easily craft an itinerary for you mainly basing on your budget and choice of tour activities.
Save Time & Money;
A local guide knows every corner of the country and can easily make suggestions about the best route to take, most affordable accommodation so you don’t have to worry wasting time wondering around trying to see which hotels/lodges to book. In addition to this, your guide is your time keeper and will always remind you on what next and will make sure that you’re in the different destinations in time. You do not have to worry much on which activity is next because your local guide is at your service to always remind you even when you know.

Firsthand Information;
Internet has made information more accessible to everyone from their living rooms and you could have read about several destinations but a local guide has lived in these areas and has the most accurate information that you may need to know. The deep knowledge of the local about culture, people, wildlife, landscapes and water bodies will leave you amazed at the deep details that could have been left out on internet.
Poor road network;
Like any developing country, Uganda has poor roads that are almost impassable especially in the country side where most tour attractions are found. This would be an experience on its own especially as you drive yourself there but when you’re stuck in the middle of a forest it’s such an ugly scene for your trip. With a local guide you will not have to worry about all this as they are used to these muddy roads especially in the rainy season.

Resting;

Another big reason for the need of a local safari guide is the comfort that comes with the sense of leaving all the steering for these long distances. You will need to rest from the long hours of your flight for you to be able to catch up with your different tour activities with no fatigue. Just sit back and relax and let your personal driver take you to where you want to go giving you an opportunity to chat, work, enjoy the scenery or simply take a nap.

Security;
Your guide is your personal body guard on safari, there’s no peace you can find like being in hands of someone who understands the places you’re visiting. You do not have to worry about being cheated, or your property being taken thieves. You have someone to worry about that just like you would do.
