Twita Safaris Uganda FAQs

Primetime for an epic safari depends on what you want to see and where you’re going. July-October is great for the Great Migration river crossings in Kenya and Tanzania.

June-October, the dry season, is best for spotting animals drawn to waterholes. November-February has lush green scenery from rains, plus newborn animals.

To avoid crowds and high rates, shoulder seasons of April-May and November can still be ideal. Check when parks offer discounts, often June and November.

Research your target places and activities to pick the optimal wildlife viewing time. Avoid rainy months that make roads muddy and viewing harder. Time your ideal safari right, and you’ll be rewarded with a truly amazing experience. Ask trusted safari experts when is best to fulfill your dreams!

Tipping your guide and lodge staff is standard in Africa to show thanks for good service – but amounts confuse people. For safari guides, $10-$15 per person daily is typical. Tip at end if service was satisfactory.

For hotel staff, $1-$2 per bag carried is nice. Leave $1-2 per room nightly for housekeeping too. Give lodge staff $10-$15 per guest per stay – more if exceptional service. Excursion guides deserve $5-$10 per person for a job well done. Most operators have communal staff tip boxes, but tip individuals directly when possible. Show your appreciation through fair tipping! Know custom and carry small bills – your trip will be even more wonderful for it.

Before safari, know essential etiquette. On game drives, keep noise low – loud talking or movements can scare animals away. Give wildlife ample space and don’t approach closely. Ask before photographing local people. Follow all guide instructions – they know what’s safest for animals and you. Don’t litter; pack out trash. Avoid bright colors or perfumes that attract bugs and animals. Respect lodges’ rules on generators, noise, and more.

Be respectful of staff. Smile, say “please” and “thank you” – good for tipping too! Knowing etiquette enhances your adventure. Follow these tips for magical wildlife viewing without hassles.

Great news – safaris aren’t just for adults! Many tour operators now cater to families with kid activities and rooms. Look for child-friendly lodges with adjoining rooms, providing privacy and bonding.
Educational programs like walks geared to kids are fun. Childcare and activity plans let adults have alone time too.

Seek vehicles with pop-up tops so kids get great views. Some properties offer “kids safari” adventures like learning tracking or family treasure hunts. Many serve buffet meals that please young appetites. Booking during school holidays means more children to meet. With kid-approved safaris available, the whole family can discover Africa’s magic!

It’s natural to wonder about safety on untamed landscapes. Luckily, reputable tour operators make your safety their top concern. They’ll keep a prudent distance from animals, have emergency plans, and ensure you follow strict precautions.

That means listening to your skilled guide at all times – don’t wander off alone! Guides will position vehicles safely but optimally, know when wildlife may get aggressive, and carry radios and weapons for emergencies.

Avoiding walking around after dark reduces risks too. By staying in your seat on drives, you’re unlikely to find yourself in danger. While inherent risks exist near wild animals, responsible safari companies  like Insight Safari Holidays minimize them very well. You can relax and focus on an incredible African trip!

Safaris can be tailored to different fitness levels. Typical drives last 3-5 hours daily riding in a 4×4 viewing animals with stops. As long as you can sit comfortably through bumpy stretches, you’ll be fine.

Many lodges have pools or massage to rest muscles. Some walking safaris are more tiring, hiking miles across bush finding animals on foot. That requires decent fitness to handle the walking time.

But walking safaris also offer shorter routes or breaks as needed. Discuss your fitness with guides to customize suitable activities. With some strength training beforehand, most moderately active people can fully enjoy a safari.

Seeing incredible wildlife up close makes minor discomforts forgettable. Don’t let fitness worries stop you – with an adventurous attitude, you can find the right safari!

Booking flights for safari takes forethought. Allow time for needed shots before flying to Africa. Book early for the best economy fares. Avoid long layovers which add tiring travel.

Fly direct when possible, or pick connections through major hubs. Arrive 1-2 days before to recover from jet lag. Fly into your first location to limit transfers – then take charter flights between camps.

Schedule a dayroom after arrival or late departure to freshen up pre-flights home. Confirm needed visas early, and check luggage limits. Carry on binoculars, camera, meds and one change of clothes in case bags are lost. Follow your tour operator’s advice on arrivals/departures and meeting guides. Advance planning takes the headaches out of African flights!

Required visas can seem tricky when planning a safari, but some tips make it easy. Tour companies should list needed visas, but double check embassy sites for latest rules.

Many must be obtained before arrival, like Kenya’s $50 eVisa. Apply early to allow processing time – at least 3 weeks ahead, better 6-8. Options exist like East Africa Visas covering Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. Give all requested documents like valid passport, photos, itinerary and fee. Use visa agencies if needing help.

Carry printed visas and vaccine proof with you. Arranging visas early lets you focus on fun! Just don’t wait until the last minute. With advance planning, visas are no problem.

Picking where to stay after exciting game drives makes a big difference. For luxury, choose a cushy hotel or tented lodge with nice amenities. For a rustic feel, unfenced camps and tents within the park immerse you in nature. Consider where the lodge/camp is – some are along rivers, others in the bush for better wildlife viewing. If you want amenities, seek ones with spas, pools, gourmet dining and fancy design. Or go simple for a more outdoor vibe.


Read reviews to confirm options match your safari vision. Also check if game drives are included. Look for special chances like outdoor breakfasts too! With many choices, go with what best fits your safari dreams – any will be wonderful. After active days observing animals, you’ll appreciate a cozy spot to unwind.

When going to Africa, it’s crucial to see your doctor and get recommended shots well in advance. Required vaccinations may include hepatitis A, typhoid, yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, and malaria pills.

Requirements vary by country, so check what’s recommended for where you’re going. Some areas need proof of yellow fever shot when you arrive. Get immunized at least 6-8 weeks before departure.

Other smart steps are malaria meds, insect repellent, sun protection and drinking bottled water. Taking precautions keeps you healthy on safari. Don’t let vaccines fall through the cracks – get them done early!

See your doctor about medication and shots before a safari. Anti-malaria meds are essential in many areas of Africa, so take the prescribed dosage before, during, and after the trip. DEET insect repellent and clothing treated with permethrin also help prevent malaria from mosquitos that come out mostly at night.

Required shots may include hepatitis A, typhoid, yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, and more. Needs vary by country, so review recommendations for where you’re going. Proof of yellow fever shot may be required when entering some countries. It’s smart to get a Covid 19 Vaccination certificate which will be required by some countries.

Planning a safari? Prices vary a lot based on location, length, lodging and activities. Budget about $200-$350 per person per day just for lodging and standard drives.

Nice camps in popular countries like South Africa, Kenya or Tanzania can be over $700 per night. Adding flights, visas, shots, transfers and activities like walking safaris adds to costs quickly.

Prices are lower in less known places like Zambia or Botswana during low season. Shorter stays cost less than 2-3 week trips too. Traveling in April-May and November brings savings also.

To cut costs, look at camping safaris or skip flights for long drives. With planning, a fantastic African safari can be affordable.

Getting those magical safari photos takes the right camera stuff. Bring a DSLR or mirrorless with a good zoom – 200-400mm range works well. Prime lenses under 200mm may not zoom enough. Bring a teleconverter to magnify more if needed.

For moving animals, fast shutter speeds (1/500s or more) are key. A monopod or beanbag steadies long lenses. Have spare batteries and big memory cards – you’ll take tons of pics! For close-ups, pack a macro lens.

Avoid camera bags – store gear securely in bins in the vehicle instead. Ask guide to position vehicle for best light and background. Before taking the shot, let the animal relax and look natural. Following these tips leads to awesome photos to share!

A safari lets you see cool wildlife in their natural habitat. The iconic “Big Five” – lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo – live across national parks and reserves in Africa.

You may also see giraffes, zebras, hippos, antelope, cheetahs, hyenas and many birds. Favorite safari animals vary by exact location – like gorillas in Uganda or wildebeest in Kenya.

Decide your must-see creatures, then research where to best find them. Whether you hope to see lions on a kill, a leopard in a tree, or elephants at a watering hole, an exciting safari awaits. Find out which exotic animals call to your inner explorer – then start planning a memorable trip!

With so many safari tour companies, picking the best one for your dream trip can be hard. Look for companies with lots of experience leading trips where you want to go.

Check if registered with top safari associations – means quality standards. Smaller groups of 6-12 give a more personal, customizable time.

Choose groups led by expert guides who know wildlife, land, culture and have great safety records. Opt for vehicles made for seeing animals, with pop-up roofs.
Pick companies that help local communities and nature. Reviews from past travelers give insight into the real experience you’ll have. Comparing companies helps find the “best of the best” for you. The right safari company shapes your whole trip – so research thoroughly to find a perfect match. We are happy as Insight Safari Holidays to tick all those boxes above.

Deciding between a group or private safari depends on what you like. Small group safaris with 6-12 others are more social, affordable. Joining a planned trip means no scheduling yourself.

Groups led by expert guides provide safety and company. But you must follow the set schedule and sights. Private safaris for just your party offer more flexibility.

You pick activities, pace and custom experiences without others affecting yours. Interacting with guides is more one-on-one. But private safaris cost a lot more.

Think about priorities – cost, being with others, flexibility. Discuss options with a safari company to decide which style suits you.

With only one week for a safari, carefully planning where to go is crucial to see a lot. Focus on just one or two areas, like Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater or Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

Spend 2-3 nights at each wilderness lodge, with morning and evening drives each day. One popular 7 day Tanzania option is: 2 nights in Arusha → 2 nights Serengeti Park → 2 nights Ngorongoro Crater → 1 night Tarangire Park. For Botswana: 2 nights Chobe Park → 3 nights Okavango Delta → 1 night Maun. Or try 1 place in depth, like 4 nights Maasai Mara in Kenya.

Itineraries vary a lot, so talk to safari experts to find the best fit for you. No matter the route, a week is just enough to start a lifelong love of safaris!
