UNIQUE WILDLIFE, SERENE BEAUTY

Uganda is known for its diversity of habitats, from lush rainforests to flat savannah plains, vast lakelands 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. This iconic African experience is easily combined with a classic Big 5 safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park.

When to visit

Uganda has distinct dry and green seasons. For gorilla trekking we recommend doing this during the short rain months of December to February and the dry season months of June to September to ensure easier conditions for hiking. For traditional game viewing in the savannah areas, we recommend February and March, or September.
