Join a fun group of travelers to Uganda! August 2023

After Our great success last August, we're bringing the Uganda Group Adventure back! With our trusted Ugandan guides and the same spirit of likeminded, adventure-seeking travellers, we'll bring in a new chapter of Destination Chaser Group Adventures. Our founder, Andi, won't be on this trip but will be managing everything from the background and selecting the group to ensure the same spirit of adventure and welcoming atmosphere.

Meet your Team: 

Why the price? Almost half of the price is trekking permits, that translate to conservation fees - since both the Gorillas, and the chimpanzees are, sadly, an endangered species, the conservation and protection of these beautiful creatures is very costly to maintain (think: constant park rangers in thick jungle, fight against illegal poaching, trying to buy back land so it does not end up being used for deforestation and habitat loss, ...)

So a big part of this price is going entirely to the conservation of these animals that we are coming to see, and I think that is beautiful. 

Besides from that, basically everything on ground is included - all transportation, from breakfast, lunch, to dinner, lodging, and of course the entrance and conservation fees. 

 

What will I get?

What's included and what's not?

🗺 What's the itinerary?

We believe that good travel is about taking you on a ride, so to transmit the feeling of adventure and spontaneity, we keep our itinerary secret and reveal our plans the day before, because we love to give good surprises. 
But don't worry, our trip will include all the highlights of Uganda, such as an ethical Rhino sanctuary (pictured below), a safari through multiple national parks over several days, with almost a guarantee to see the grand African wildlife, such as the Elephant, Lion, Leopards, you name it... , Chimpanzee trekking is on the plan too (the species closest to us humans!), just as doing a small river cruise is, and - most importantly - trekking through the jungle to find the beautiful, endangered, mountain gorillas

But, I've already said too much - the rest is a surprise ;) See you there! 

Why apply? We could make our job a whole lot easier and just accept direct bookings, but we pride ourselves on the groups of people we put together, making sure everyone's on the same fun, flexible, and travel-loving wavelength as everyone on the trips's travel family. So if that sounds like you, don't be shy - apply! 

 

Why this trip? I don't need to tell you what my travels are about - if you're here, you probably know, and you also know that it will attract exactly the kind of people that are interested in the same things: human connections, adventure, and a love for authentic travel.
