The mesmerising mountain gorilla in Uganda. Gorilla trekking is truly a bucket-list experience
Uganda is known for its diversity of habitats, from lust rainforests to flat savannah plains, vast lake lands to elevated, mountainous terrain, each bringing experiences as unique as the landscapes themselves. A Uganda adventure wouldn't be complete without trekking through the Bwindi National Park to witness majestic mountain gorilla families, and this iconic African experience is easily combined with a classic Big 5 safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Scenery in Uganda is jaw dropping from lush, green forests, to snow-capped mountains, crater lakes and savannah grasslands but the real draw card is the wildlife - the star of the show being the primates.
Whilst the term 'adventure of a lifetime' is often a cliché, it is certainly true when tracking endangered mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Meeting these gentle creatures eye to eye is an emotional experience, one never forgotten.
For pure fun and unforgettable entertainment, trek the chimpanzees in Kibale Forest with our expert guides who will bring to life the complexities of their social structure. Get those cameras ready to capture the chimps' humorous hand gestures and facial expressions, their deafening screeches and their death-defying leaps through the trees.
Uganda is often unfairly overlooked as a safari destination. Tree-climbing lions, massive pods of hippos, elephant herds and some of the richest birding in Africa are all within an easy distance of the primates. Uganda is one of the few places to see the threatened, pre-historic shoebill stork and its 10 foot wing span!
Whether you are climbing the Mountains of the Moon, white water rafting on the River Nile or tracking gorillas, Uganda is an adventure holiday or honeymoon that also supplies plenty of depth and meaning.
But what makes us so passionate about safari holidays to Uganda is the Ugandan people. Utterly charming and genuinely warm, you will leave Uganda with a heavy heart and a plan for your next trip!
