If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another participant. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in Uganda?

We don't advise you to do so. Take your own filter or fill your canteen at places that the guides tell you are safe. You can always buy bottled water.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

For basic expenses, such as meals not included in the program, about 250 euros will be enough. However there are some optional activities that you might want to do, and for these you should have your bank card nearby, because the amount can double or even more.

Is insurance included in the land program?

It is not included for those departing from outside of Portugal, whether they are Portuguese citizens or not. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. The included insurance does not cover COVID-19, but you can trigger an optional insurance policy suggested by Papa-Léguas that does cover COVID-19. For more information regarding available insurance policies, see our page about travel insurance.

What documentation do I need to go on this trip?
