With a spell of good weather, mild and calm with a patch of blue sky lies the luxury safaris. The hearing of the birds sing and the water tides surrounded with a conducive environment and soothing music only makes you believe that indeed Uganda is a pearl of Africa.

Spending holidays amidst town may sometimes be disturbing as you have to think of the  urban congestion, heavy traffic but hey? you are answered

A few miles out of the city suburbs lies the safaris set with  panoramic views, beautiful sceneries, well established cottages all intended to give you a great ideal of the place.

Indeed basing on the Danish famous author Karen Blixen, “If there were one more thing i could do, it would be to go on safari once again.”

What happens at the safari sites

You will be received upon arrival and taken care of by a dedicated, reliable, adaptive working team ready to serve you with variety of services including indoor services. This comprises of steaming(sauna), body scrub, massage therapy and facials which restores and relieves your mind. As all this goes on, professional chefs prepare continental and tropical dishes to feast on.

After enjoying a variety of indoor services, setting off to the wild now comes in. Pull out the jungle shoes, camera and board a vehicle of no more than six individuals together with a tour guide. while on the expedition of various man eaters, you get to see the giraffe safaris, zebra safaris, rhinoceros and leopards hence a close up on nature, a wider and clear view is mostly attained in the car than on foot. However, this seems to be less enjoyable I mean spotting the impalas, and all wildlife in a vehicle but according to the guides, the animals also avoid getting close to the road for some various reasons like the predator may turn out to be prey.

As the day goes by, setting up fire camps is permitted as this provides  warmth and security since many wild animals are unfriendly with fire. wild life stories are told by the tour guides and many facts about the wild.

As earlier noted, before you say that you have moved to various astonishing places in Uganda or Africa at large but you haven’t set a foot to the luxury safaris then you should think twice.
