Budget Tour Packages

Uganda has a number of budget tour packages for its visitors full of a lot to discover from Nature wildlife excursion, Game drives to capture sight of the Big Five in their nature habitat and other diversity of wild animals, culture, birding, beach and city gateways.

But its better if you lookout for free amazing activities or tour activities with good discounts and can only take a few dollars from your pocket. Visiting the source of the Nile, Sezibwa falls, white water rafting, wildlife viewing and island adventures to either Ssese or Bunyonyi Island are the most recommended.

Here a private budget tour is recommended in order to avoid over charge from local service providers who think all foreigners come to spend. Book with a responsible tour expert   who will take responsibility of transport accommodation, and organizing your trip itinerary .It will cost you not more than $1000 depending on your interest, activities and number of days.


At least every tourist attraction in Uganda can be accessible by road means of transport. Taxi, boda bodas (Motorbikes) and public transport buses should be your trend as long as you chose to discover the country on budget. Some times you can request you travel expert to guide you on how you can explore a destination alone if you want to spend a few extra dollars on another adventure after your budget holiday.

It happened when you return from southwestern Uganda tour adventures and you feel eastern Uganda should be your next spot. Public transport is flexible and cheap when it comes to travels around the country. Be flexible and love your adventure. For long distances public transport will cost you a minimum of $15 that is from Kampala to Kabale one way   and $3 from Kampala to Jinja.

Look out for cheap and affordable hostels, campsites and lodges in parks and city centers on Bed & Breakfast basis like Kampala backpackers, Fatcats hostel, Redchil hostel, Nile river campsite, adrift campsite etc. Make sure you stick to your budget per night in order to save more and more.
