Uganda Wildlife Safari

In recent years Uganda has emerged as a tourism hotspot in Africa. Travellers can take advantage of the best that Africa has to offer: great prices, epic scenery, and of course, all the wildlife. Uganda has the tallest mountain range in Africa, which feeds the world’s largest river and Africa’s biggest lake. On a Uganda wildlife safari, you will have the opportunity to experience all these natural wonders, as well as wildlife ranging from mountain gorillas to chimpanzees.

Start off your guided tour in Kampala, a city that makes an excellent base for exploring Uganda’s more wild side. Before heading out into the great unknown, visit the famous tombs of the Kabaka Kings, as well as the Uganda Museum, and the Bahai temple. Then it’s off to Kibale Forest, one of the best places to get up close and personal with chimpanzees, red colobus monkeys, and L’Hoest’s monkeys. The drive to the forest is stunning, and you’ll find yourself meandering through papyrus swamps and thick jungles. At Kibale, visitors can experience the friendly chimps and playful monkeys in the forest canopy, their natural homes. Set against the Ruwenzori Mountains, the landscape makes for impressive scenic views. You’ll also get to see the stunning Crater Lake.

For something different, head to Queen Elizabeth National Park and cruise down the Kazinga Channel.  All the big game is found inside the park, especially elephants and kob. There are even some rare animals, like giant forest hogs. Here, Lake Edward connects to Lake George, where large numbers of buffalo and hippo tend to graze. An experienced guide will keep you safe and informed!

Uganda Wildlife Safari Continued...

The Bwindi jungle is another must-see on your Uganda wildlife safari, especially when it comes to seeing gorillas. It’s considered the best scenic trip in Eastern Africa, thanks to its highland rainforests and volcanoes. Visit the bat cave near Maramagambo forest, or stop by Kyambura gorge. On your way to Bwindi, stop at Ishasha to look for tree-climbing lions. You’ll drive through beautiful tea plantations, until you reach Bwindi, a lush highland rain forest. Many primates live here, and rare birds.

Be sure to do some gorilla trekking. Guides will lead you into the heart of the jungle, where you’ll be able to see the rare mountain gorilla. There are only 650 of these beautiful creatures left in the world. The trekking may be tiring – lasting up to six hours – but it’s worth it. With a guide by your side, you’ll learn all about the trials facing these gorillas, as well as the types of conservation methods in place to keep them safe. If you want a truly unforgettable trip, this is it.
