What other factors to consider when choosing an operator
So many factors should be considered when dealing with an operator and below are just some of the most relevant of them.
Package provided. This is what matters most but unfortunately very many tourists ignore it. I believe you should give more attention to the operator that gives you the best package because this package is what is going to guide you when you travel. It’s always recommended to inquire with about 10 – 15 operators then start to compare their respective packages as you make a shortlist. Look at the lodging options, the activities included, the destinations, the price, kind of vehicle used plus more facilities. Of that list of considerations, i recommend you look closely on the destinations else your safari might have more driving time compared to activities.
What if the package costs a bit high compared to the rest? Packages with good accommodation facilities and land cruisers usually cost a bit high compared to the ones that don’t. Don’t rush to cross out a company because their price is high but rather try to find out why the price is high. Look through each of the accommodation facilities and visit their respective TripAdvisor pages then you can tell whether the package is worth it r not.
Communication. Does the operator you are communicating with make you feel secure and comfortable? I believe a certain level of friendship must be built between you and the operator before you get close to confirming your safari and if not, think twice about that operator. Some operators simply focus on getting you to book but mind less about establishing a relationship with you which isn’t good because these are the same operators who will mind less about your trip when you travel, book for you gorilla permits for average trekking areas or even book sub-standard accommodation facilities for your safari. Endeavor to confirm your trip with the operator who makes you feel more comfortable.
Supported methods of payment. Does your operator support the method of payment you intend to use? If they don’t, you might have to get one that does because making payments from certain countries can seem hard in some scenarios. The most common supported method of payment in Uganda is bank transfer but most operators do accept credit card transfers too.
