AUTHENTIC CULTURAL HOMESTAY
There is no better way of actually getting to know a community than living with and working alongside them. This is what this life changing experience achieves. It is not a sanitised commercial tourist experience – it is the real deal. By day you work alongside the community on a project that you and the community have jointly had input into selecting. By night, participants are ‘billeted’ out in small groups of 2-4 to host families. This structured programme ensures a meaningful involved authentic cultural experience and a real opportunity to make a difference.
The community pledges ‘sweat equity’ while you vow to fundraise for the project, together the project is undertaken and completed. The goal is for projects to be completed during your stay and if applicable are self-sustainable going forward. There is scope for projects that can be integrated into an annual visitation regime.
The success of our business is related to how we connect with people. Our entire team of sales and travel consultants, administration staff and our guides share the CHOCOLATE SAFARIS vision, but their greatest strength is their ability to reach out to people and share with them their passion for Uganda’s people, wildlife and wilderness areas. Our guides are the backbone of our business and are all highly experienced with relevant qualification.
CHOCOLATE SAFARIS is the ideal travel partner in two core markets; Academic field trips for tertiary education institutions and Youth Development Programmes for secondary schools, on a fully escorted, guided basis.
Uganda is an amazing location for educational field trips, particularly those based on personal developments, adventurous activities, wildlife, biodiversity, conservation, environmental studies, agricultural, anthropology, archaeology, developing world economies and sustainable tourism, to name a few.
The combination of Africa’s best wildlife destinations, oldest wilderness areas, vast open spaces, diverse landscapes, vibrant traditional cultures and first world infrastructure, makes Uganda unlike any other African country and creates the opportunity for potentially life changing travel experiences for Tourists and Students
