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.
