Kampala, Uganda, 23 June 2020 – Over the last three months, the whole world had come to a standstill due to global health concerns. Travel was paralyzed, businesses were closed, lives were lost, and the future remained uncertain. Who could even think of traveling with their primary source of income threatened?
As conditions of travel are getting relaxed, businesses are opening again, national parks for the case of African safaris. We are delighted to let the public know that we are opening our doors at 4X4 Uganda again.
It is no longer news to consider Africa for your next holiday destination. A lot of the myths that had kept people in the dark regarding the African continent have been demystified with a lot of online content through webinars, and a lot of website content bringing to light most of the untold paradise fantasy kind of realities.
If you are fond of sitting before a T.V screen, you must have stumbled on National Geographic series regarding Africa. Though this is beautiful, there is more to discover in the African wilderness than what is documented by BBC, NatGeo Wild, and other popular media streams. For this reason, self drive holidays are becoming popular on the African continent for a number of reasons.
You might have heard of Kruger National Park in South Africa, Morocco desert safaris, the great migration in Serengeti and Masai Mara. But there is still a very precious gem that you might have not heard of; did you know that Mountain gorillas still exist in the wild? And there are only three countries in the whole world where they can be found!
Uganda offers the once in the lifetime opportunity to spot the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. These two national parks host almost half of the remaining population of the mountain gorillas in the whole world altogether.
Though the trek might seem expensive due to the gorilla permits, it carries a double worth of the gorilla trek experience and community development. This will be a life-changing contribution more so after the pandemic to the communities around the parks.
4X4 Uganda is committed to secure for you gorilla permits once again at no extra costs all year. All it takes is to reach out via 4x4Uganda.com.
Besides gorilla trekking; the Murchison falls are simply getting more magnificent due to the rise in the water levels in Lake Victoria and the world’s longest river; the Nile respectively. hough these waterfalls have been known as the world’s strongest waterfall, they are getting better every day, actually, they are better than when you last visited a year or two ago.
We cannot forget to tell you about the game drives in over seven of the most popular national parks in Uganda. Remember, Uganda is one of the countries in East Africa that is having a lot of road development.
We had to recap the above because those are some of the few reasons many people have considered a self drive in Uganda but also in East Africa and sometimes an overland drive across the African continent. Instead of wondering where to begin from; 4X4 Uganda is opening its doors in the first week of July to resume self drive hires after a long shutdown.
