Safari holidays to Uganda silverback gorilla Hippo sighting on safari at Queen Elizabeth NP Chimpanzee at Kibale

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 critically 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!

Uganda is worthy of anyone's bucket list. Tick it off and experience something new by contacting one of our Uganda safari specialists today.

While this score is a bit low, please understand that I am comparing it to our many other African experiences through Mahlatini. The low score, I believe, stems from Uganda's relatively unsophisticated or underdeveloped system of ecotourism. Paraa Lodge is woefully outdated and more "motel-like" than the lodges to which we are accustomed. However, I recognize it has an advantageous location on the "proper" side of the Nile to avoid…
