Budget travelling around Uganda is very possible especially if you are running on a tight budget. Certainly you will miss out on the luxurious hotels in Uganda but who cares if you can still get all the fun to make a perfect holiday – and yet spend less!
Yes! It’s possible to spend less but again, take extra caution because ironically even cheap stuff can turn out to be expensive in the long run. It is therefore worth taking time to carefully look through your travel plans and what you exactly want to do with your holiday… sadly even the cheap stuff still cost money!
But your tight budget shouldn’t stop you from travelling around Uganda and enjoying the remote and beautiful country side of the country. You will possibly see quite a lot more than what a guided tour would give you.
Here I have looked at some of the possibilities of saving up on your holiday in Uganda. This will be particularly interesting for people on working holidays; those with more time than money, the backpackers and also for everybody else who would love to do some travelling around Uganda.
Hire a Car
On renting a car in Uganda, I would say yes and no – this will entirely depend on how long you plan to stay. If you are looking at a short holiday travelling around Uganda, then this is the better option. Find the right car hire (very reliably a full time 4×4); at the right price and off you go…
Also find out from your embassy in Uganda – they will usually have advice on this and they could also have a notice board where people who are leaving post ads for items on sale. You could land a bargain!
With a group of friend, you could also stay at the backpackers hostels to save up on accommodation. Hostels are a great way to meet new friends and make connections and also meet people who are leaving and selling their cars. Such people will also be reliably informed on how to find a good car and point you to a few places.
