7 Reasons Why People Should Take a Group Tour

People often wonder what the best type of vacation is for them. Here we make the case for traveling with a group. Groups can consist of 10 people that you do know or 100 that you don’t – or vice versa or both. There can be a special reason for traveling such as a family reunion in the land of your ancestors, or no reason at all except for a group of friends who have similar tastes and wish to experience them together.

Never Alone

Sometimes traveling in a party of two can be difficult as trying to decide on what places to visit and sites to see can be overwhelming. Traveling in a group however, means there are a wider variety of people with similar interests. Our group tours can consist of people who have been fast friends for years or a group of strangers who just share similar interests – some with a mixture of both. You are automatically widening your circle of companions and there will be lots of people to share the exact vacation you want.

Stress-Free

Having a tour director by your side takes the stress out of your vacation. All of your transfers and excursions are well thought-out and planned ahead of time. The tour director is also on stand-by to help alleviate any issues that pop up with traveling. Your only responsibility is to sit back and enjoy each stop on your itinerary. All of our groups have a group leader who is with the group from the early planning stages until long after the trip has concluded. The best part – no one drives which is enough stress reduction on its own.

See The Best Bits And Some Hidden Gems

An organized group tour guarantees that the most important sites are included in the tour while also including some hidden gems that you may not discover on your own. It also ensures that you maximize the use of your time and allocates the required amount of time for each attraction. Blindly planning your own trip can work out well but leaving it to an expert who has planned dozens of similar group trips means that they know what works best.

Learn From The Rest

Each member of the group can bring a different perspective to the tour and this allows you to learn more about a particular location or indeed enhance your opinion about a particular site. You can learn a lot on a group tour. The driver alone is a font of knowledge who can tell you more about a location as you drive past it than reading any guide book would.

Cost Effective

Traveling alone or in twos can often be expensive as you end up relying with the ‘go with the flow’ approach. You may end up stopping several times as your journey progresses which makes the trip expensive. However, as a group tour is pre-arranged you will already have most of your transportation, accommodation, attractions and even meals paid for before you leave. You also know exactly what each day will entail so it can help you to budget.

Unique Experiences

Group tours get to enjoy things that some travelers simply do not.   Some experiences are bigger than others but each group tour will be filled with them. With so many different people and personalities, it would be difficult not to.

Friends For Life

Group tours are a great way of building up your network of friends. You automatically create a bond with the members of the group as you share lifelong memories and experiences together. You may even plan another tour with some of these friends. Sharing new experiences in another country or reuniting in a familiar country (i.e. family reunion) are the kind of things that bond people for life and make them want to further their adventures with each other over and over.

Review of: 3-Day Gorillas trekking and Batwa Experience
Sedrick went above and beyond to accomodate our request for an itinerary alteration due to our compressed time in Uganda. He also compeltely took care of scheduling our covid 19 testing and drove us to the site on arrival.

Our driver/guide Ben was also outstanding!

**We highly recommend using a porter during gorilla trekking as their are some complex parts to the trail/terrain. This also benefits the local people by providing them work.**

Seeing Lots of Animals and Uganda
The schedule suited my time in Uganda exactly and was a great opportunity to view some of the top wildlife and natural wonders of the country. Lodgings range from mid-range to near upscale and are in beautiful locations. Food is good and ample. My driver, Stanley, was expert at spotting wildlife and, very importantly on the Ugandan roads, a careful and skilled driver. You see various parts of the country on this tour, and due to distances, be aware you'll spend quite a few hours on the road. One thing they might add is an itinerary going into more detail ahead of time on each day's activity and suggested things to bring. I was concerned about the needed COVID test for return home, but they took care of arranging that, and it turned out successfully. Overall the tour was a real highlight and is highly recommended.

I went on an 11 day safari visiting Kampala, Jinja, Lake Mburo NP, Bwindi NP, Queen Elizabeth NP and Kibale NP. Communications with Ngoni were prompt and easy from the start. As soon as I made my booking, Sedrick contacted me through WhatsApp and guided me through the rest of the process. Leading up to the tour he made sure I was well-prepared to begin. He was always very clear and friendly. Service was exceptional. I had the pleasure of going on this safari with three members of Ngoni's staff - Sedrick, Nelson and Joel. These guys made my comfort their priority from the moment we met. Whether it was checking if I was okay with the accommodations or making sure I always had a bottle of water, I always felt like I was being well taken care of. Nelson is an excellent guide. His knowledge about the flora and fauna of Uganda was extensive, always able to answer any questions I had and was eager to teach - it's obvious that he has a great love for his country and it's environment and is eager to share this love with his clients. My experience with Ngoni and Uganda surpassed all expectations I had. Absolutely amazing, and thanks to the guys at Ngoni it feels like a new home - can't wait to come back and visit. Webale, brothers!

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
