Village Safaris in Uganda – Acacia Safaris
Acacia Safaris Uganda encourages travelers to visit local people in their communities which is one way of contributing to the incomes of the locals. This is a win-win for both travelers and the communities because it provides travelers with an opportunity to experience the Village life Safaris and appreciate the daily lives of the people and the people enjoy sharing their homes with the visitors.
You can request an activity in Village Safaris to be added to the Uganda safari itinerary where you spend days in the Village Safaris or just hours participating in a chore or visiting a local school. We desire that locals get to earn directly from the ‘tourism dollar’ and bring about development in their communities which contributes to conservation as they become protective of the nature they benefit from.
Visit Local Schools/Health Centers on Village Safaris in Africa
You can visit a local school or health center which takes anything between 1 to 3 hours depending on what you engage in while at the school/health center. You can bring along things to give away to the people like educational materials, balls, etc. If this is part of your itinerary, you are encouraged to carry along something to leave with the pupils or as a contribution to the school or health center.
This takes you through the Village stopping Safaris at various sites like tea/coffee farms (tea experience/coffee experience) if they have such in their village, a waterfall, a distillation site of local gin, a banana beer brewing demonstration site, a traditional healer, bird-watching in a Village, music, and performance.
These walks are laid back and allow you to interact with the Village. This kind of walk can take approximately three hours depending on the sights and activities; however, visitors are free to choose the sites of particular interest and opt for a shorter itinerary.
