INCENTIVE TRAVEL
Many people dream of visiting East Africa.
If you are looking for the perfect incentive travel option for your employees, affiliates or partners,
why not let their dreams come true and offer them an African safari?
Putting together the perfect safari package to suit any individual needs and interests couldn’t be
any easier. With our world of safari options, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

SAFARI STYLES
We offer the traveler an unparalleled range of options. The incredible diversity of landscapes,
cultures, wildlife, and activities mean endless opportunities. With so many choices at hand, some people find the prospect of planning a trip quite daunting. It doesn’t have to be that way. With us, it is very easy to plan and prepare for a safari that is as
individual as you are, and that satisfies your own personal needs and interests.

VISA AND PASSPORT
A valid passport is required for all foreigners entering Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda. Visa requirements vary according to the country of origin. Most nationalities require a visa to enter Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. We advise that you check with the nearest Consulate of Uganda, Tanzania or Kenya if traveling to the respective country. Visa can be processed at the airports upon arrival but this can be very slow. We, therefore, advise clients to purchase them from their countries of origin before traveling.

VACCINATIONS
Yellow fever and Cholera vaccination certificate is required in Uganda if visitors are arriving from a
country where these diseases are present. Yellow fever certificate is required in Tanzania
regardless of country of origin. We advise that all clients seek advice from their doctors when
planning to travel. Malaria prophylaxis is recommended

CURRENCY
Ugandan currency is based on the decimal system. The unit of currency is the Shilling divided into
100 cents. Visitors are advised to check currency exchange rates regularly. Banks give slightly
better rates of exchange than hotels. It is a serious offense to deface or knowingly damage Ugandan
currency. Visitors are strongly advised to avoid street dealers and to transact all currency dealings
through official dealers.

BANKING
Kampala, Wakiso and most other principal centers in Uganda have banks with Bureau de Change.
Banking hours are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday, though some open between 9 a.m. and
11 a.m. on the first and last Saturday of each month. Banks at Entebbe
International Airports operate a 24-hour service.

TIPPING
A Service Charge is usually included in all tariffs, however, the tipping of exceptional service is
always appreciated. Customary tips for bar service and room porters are 10% whereas restaurant
tariffs that exclude service charge will anticipate a 5% to 10% tip.

SECURITY
In keeping with many tourist centers worldwide, visitors are advised not to leave any valuables in
their hotel room when they go out, but to make use of the safe deposit boxes which are available
at most hotels and lodges. As in all major cities, it is advisable to avoid back streets at night (especially alone); in fact, is it much safer to avoid night walking altogether and use taxis or self-drive hire cars instead. Uganda has an excellent police force and most hotels have experienced security personnel and caring doormen.

HOTEL CHECK-OUT TIME
The standard checkout time in Uganda is 10 a.m. regardless of the actual departure time from your
hotel. Day room facilities maybe available for clients leaving in the evening or they may allow you
keep your room until departure depending on the occupancy of the Hotel. A charge will be payable
locally for this service.

ACCOMMODATION
Whenever possible we book rooms with private bathrooms on the basis of two persons sharing a
double room. Single rooms are available at supplementary cost but neither single room nor rooms
with private bath can be guaranteed especially within the national parks and game reserves.
Hotels, where mentioned, are named as an indication of category and rooms may be reserved at
similar hotels.

PHOTOGRAPHY
For game and bird photography a telephoto lens of 200-300mm is strongly recommended.
Twin lenses reflex cameras are generally impractical. It is wise to equip yourself with plenty of
batteries, ultra-violet filter, and lenses hood as these are seldom available when on Safari.
Visitors are advised that it is an offense to photograph Uganda’s head of state, military installations, policemen in uniforms, etc. As a general rule elsewhere, visitors are strongly advised to seek permission before taking any photographs.

Note: Gorilla Trekking and Chimpanzee Tracking Fees are non-refundable
