PLEASE NOTE for international flights: when booking for flights to come on this safari.

  • Kindly book flight inbound flight to Entebbe International Airport, Uganda (flying into Uganda to begin your 21-day study tour safari).

  • Book your outbound flight from Entebbe International Airport, Uganda (flying out of Uganda back home at the end of your 21-day study tour safari).

 Things to know before you do your safari.

1.           Drinks

On the 21-day safari, only bottled drinking water is included in the safari price. Alcoholic drinks (gin, beer, wine), coffee, tea, hot water, freshly made juices are not included. You can pay for any drinks you order by  local cash or credit card.

2. Listen to your guide

Paying attention to your guides is the most crucial thing to do on safari. The guides are experts in the environment and animal behavior and they will have the best judgement in any situation. Their job is to keep you safe so it’s imperative that you always follow their instructions.

3. Do not disturb the animals

The plains of Africa are not a zoo and the animals must not be disturbed as they roam about in their natural habitat. Never call out or wave to an animal as this will spook them. They will either run away and ruin the sighting experience for everyone, or they’ll charge at you, putting everyone’s life in serious danger.

4. Be quiet

It’s important not to make too much noise as animals scare easily. The animals are used to the sounds of the vehicles, but human noise will upset them. Mute your devices to avoid any loud beeping and if you need to talk, do so in a whisper. It’s easy to embrace an awed silence when you’re immersed in a thrilling search for wildlife. Sit back and let the beauty of the African bush take your breath away.

Don’t get too close to animals, as they are unpredictable and can move very quickly when threatened. It goes without saying that you should never try to touch or feed an animal.

5. Do not feed the animals

Don’t bring any food during a game drive. Animals have an incredible sense of smell and will be attracted by something as small as a wrapped candy.

Sodas and sweet drinks always lure stinging insects so stick to water. If you do need to eat while on safari (possibly for medical reasons), try to avoid anything with noisy packaging and inform your guide before heading off.

6. No smoking or littering

These are two big no-noes. Smoking is a fire hazard in the African bush and will pollute the natural environment and disturb the animals. Littering is also never okay. Leave no trace and dispose of all trash in designated bins. if you want to smoke, kindly ask your guide to find a good smoking area for you. But smoking in the vehicle, hotel rooms, gathered groups, and public places is not allowed.

7.          Luggage and packing

Your luggage is limited to one backpack OR one duffel bag and one daypack weighing no more than 25kg. As a general rule, “If you cannot lift your own luggage, you’ve got too much stuff!” Most people make the mistake of bringing too many clothes on safari.

Please keep in mind that this is a study tour safari and luggage should not include any Samsonite style suitcases. As the wheelie / trolley bags have a solid frame, they don’t squeeze into spaces the same way a backpack or a duffel bag does. African safari vehicle trunks and light inland aircraft cargo compartments are narrow. If the frame does not fit in the cargo compartment, then there aren’t many other places to put your bag and it will inconvenience everyone else on safari. Also, by day two, the mud and stones will get into the little wheels on your wheelie bag and the novelty will be over and you’ll be carrying your suitcase from A to B. A compact and flexible waterproof duffel bag is perfect for stashing into the cargo compartment.

Not a good idea to carry this type

 

Day pack:

On  your study tour safari you will generally need to take along a smaller daypack for excursions. For example, on gorilla trekking, chimpanzee tracking, hikes and game drives you will need a smaller bag, big enough to bring basic equipment like a camera, water, insect repellants, etc.

(2) What is the  advantage of a study tour?

(a) A study tour helps students to better realize the interaction between their chosen fields of study with the rest of the world therefore helping them better appreciate their chosen field.

The Study Tour will help students to broaden their horizons to many possibilities that are not just contained in one geographical location or culture.

Students from Portugal posing for a photo during their land formation study tour in Soroti District, Eastern Uganda.

(b) For the students, study tours are generally eye-opening and action-packed, offering the chance to meet and mix with peers from other countries, discover new enthusiasms and, along the way, develop a stronger sense of self-confidence and independence.

(c) On a good educational tour, students experience a different culture through new eyes. … Such experiences can help students develop more compassion for people from different walks of life. It can also help them to reflect on how these issues affect the people near their home, inspiring them to work towards change.

(3) How does field trip safari help lecturers and professors?

School study tour trips provide children with a different level of excitement and fun. It gives them something to look forward to; in essence, field trips erase the boredom that is associated with classroom lectures.

Fields/Topics of Study Tour

(1)Geomorphology

Geomorphology is the study of landforms and landform evolution. The topic traditionally has been studied both qualitatively, which is the description of landforms, and quantitatively, which is process-based and describes forces acting on Earth’s surface to produce landforms and landform change.

(2)Ideology

An ideology is a set of beliefs or philosophies attributed to a person or group of persons, especially as held for reasons that are not purely epistemic, in which “practical elements are as prominent as theoretical ones.

This independence monument of Uganda, features a woman unwrapping her child and raising it to the skies. The monument signified that the British had done their part and it was now up to Uganda, and the new child, to do the rest.

(3) Zoology

Zoology is the branch of biology that studies the animal kingdom, including the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits, and distribution of all animals, both living and extinct, and how they interact with their ecosystem.

Students from Spain study features of a Rhinoceros at Entebbe Wildlife Education Center in Uganda.

(4) Volcanology

Volcanology is the study of volcanoes, lava, magma and related geological, geophysical and geochemical phenomena. The term volcanology is derived from the Latin word vulcan. Vulcan was the ancient Roman god of fire.

(5)Demography

Demography studies the statistics of human populations. Demography is usually used to study dynamic (constantly changing) populations. It covers the study of the size, structure and distribution of these populations and the changes in these populations due to births, deaths, migration and emigration. Demography can also be applied to entire groups defined by nationality, religion and ethnicity.

Formal demography limits its object of study to the measurement of populations processes, while the broader field field of social demography population studies also analyze the relationships between economic, social, cultural and biological processes influencing a population.

(6)Dendrology(Xylology)

Dendrology or Xylology is the science and study of woody plants, specifically. Their Taxonomic classifications. There is no sharp boundary between plant Taxonomy and Dendrology; woody plants not only belong to many different plant families, but these families may be made up of both woody and non-woody members.

(7)Limnology and Volcanology

Limnology is the study of inland aquatic ecosystems. The study of limnology includes aspects of the biological, chemical, physical, and geological characteristics and functions of inland waters. This includes the study of lakes, reservoirs, ponds, rivers, springs, streams, wetlands, and groundwater.

(8)Urban Geography

Main street of Jinja Town Uganda

Urban geography is the study of cities and urban processes. Urban geographers and urbanists examine various aspects of urban life and the built environment. Scholars, activists, and the public have participated in, studied, and critiqued flows of economic and natural resources, human and non-human bodies, patterns of development and infrastructure, political and institutional activities, governance, decay and renewal, and notions of socio-spatial inclusions, exclusions, and everyday life.

The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes in Great Britain, continental Europe, and the United States, in the period from about 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840. This transition included going from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing and iron production processes, the increasing use of steam power and water power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the mechanized factory system. The Industrial Revolution also led to an unprecedented rise in the rate of population growth.
