Uganda

Uganda lies on the equator, east of Tanzania and Kenya and west of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is smaller than the United Kingdom but boasts a spectacular array of landscapes – from snow-capped mountains and savannah to lush swampland and impenetrable forests.

Its remote, unspoilt parks teem with wildlife such as the famed East Africa big game species of lion, elephant and buffalo as well as primates and over a thousand species of birds.
Uganda, and its neighbor Rwanda, share the unique responsibility of conserving a population of critically endangered mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, funded in no small part through the trekking fees levied on visiting guests.

Arriving at Entebbe airport in the capital Kampala visitors can embark on a full safari itinerary encompassing the best of the diverse parks, or simply a short excursion to the southeast for gorilla trekking.

Adventure Safari

Discover tree climbing lions around Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth National Park, trek chimps in Kibale Forest or Chamburu Gorge, or snatch massive Nile Perch up north at Murchison Falls where the mighty Nile cascades through a gap just 7m wide. Adrenaline junkies will find Jinja simply exhilarating; with its white-water rafting, kayaking and bungee jumping activities Jinja is rapidly emerging as East Africa’s answer to that more southerly “adrenaline capital” Victoria Falls. We invite you to explore Uganda, a diverse landscape with abundant wildlife, plenty to discover and unique experiences you’ll struggle to find words to do justice to when recounting your time in this jewel of a country.

Highland & Lowland Mountain Gorilla Trekking

Gorilla Trekking is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife encounters and something we consider to be a unique African adventure. It offers both magically beautiful and soul changing encounters with these incredible countries and the magnificent beings that inhabit them. Mountain gorillas can only be found in 3 countries in the world in East Africa. The wilderness of the Virunga highlands that lies within Le Parc National Des Volcans in Rwanda, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park as well as Mahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda, and the Virunga National Park found in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These parks are found approximately 48 km from each other, and within Uganda as well as Rwanda they are easily accessible. There is a lot of planning and preparation involved in gorilla trekking safari and pre-booked permits are essential. We also offer packages to Western lowland gorillas may be trekked. Please talk to our dedicated Safari Designer about the requirements.
