Uganda is largely the rising star of safari destinations, remote and untouched. In Uganda, travellers can combine classic safari experiences of open savannah, to highly exceptional encounters of lush rainforests and the primates within, to waterfall fishing and lake adventures at the source of the world’s longest river. Together with being home to the largest number of primates and highest concentration of mountain gorillas, tree climbing lions and a zebra migration, the birdlife across these vastly varied habitats is truly astounding.
From gorilla trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, chimpanzee treks at Kibale, plains game viewing at Queen Elizabeth National Park – one of the most biodiverse reserves in the world – to wild water activities at Murchison Falls and exploring off-the-beaten-track in the Kidepo Valley…Uganda is the ‘Pearl of Africa’ and a true safari gem!
