As you plan to take a cheap Uganda safari, you should be ready to book your tour so early at least 6 months in advance. Wondering why you have to book your tour early? this is so because you have the chance to choose from different packages. When you contact your tour operator early you can request for several safari packages that can fit into your budget. The other advantage is that you have time to bargain and make a few changes that fit your budget. This is not possible with last-minute bookings where the tour operator also may have a hard time making your bookings and therefore can not compromise.
Travelling in a group is one way of making sure you share costs. Travelling solo is expensive since you pay the same amount for the same services that a group could pay. A group of 6 to 10 people is one way of having an affordable trip. In a group, you can share transport, guide, and fuel costs which makes the prices very low. Getting together and travelling in a group makes costs less and also makes the trip enjoyable with a lot of fun as a group.
Acacia safaris Uganda always organizes group tours or scheduled trips. These group tours in most cases have a bigger number of people and therefore costs are low for each individual. These trips have scheduled dates and therefore you need to contact and get part of the trip as soon as possible.

Definitely the safari land cruisers are more expensive than safari vans. Vans are comfortable too and can reach any point of the country be it on a gorilla trekking safari in Uganda, bird watching tour or Uganda wildlife safari. Choose to book a safari vehicle and reduce on your transport expense.
Each of the 10 national parks in Uganda has accommodation facilities that can suit all travellers ranging from luxury to budget.
