Uganda is rightly known as “The Pearl of Africa” with its unspoiled rainforest, roaring Murchison’s Falls and abundant wildlife. But very little rivals the experience of tracking mountain gorillas through the verdant foliage of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, one of its last remaining refuges.
Be prepared for some tough walking through one of Africa’s oldest jungles, but the reward of getting to within touching distance of these majestic creatures, who share some 97.7% of our DNA, is incomparable. And it’s not just primates that make a home amidst Bwindi’s jungle-shrouded hills. Keep your eyes peeled for forests elephants, bushbuck and some of the most colourful butterflies and birds on earth.
Our Uganda specialists can help you to experience the full biodiversity of this magnificent East African country. Ask us to design your tailor-made holiday and you could find yourself making the acquaintance of playful chimpanzees in Queen Elizabeth National Park, photographing rare tree-climbing lions in Ishasha or spotting bat-eared foxes in the remote but beautiful Kidepo National Park. Uganda’s crater lakes and watering holes, meanwhile, attract large numbers of hippo, crocodile and flamingo.
And that’s without even mentioning the enchanting Kibale Forest - home to no less than 13 different species of primate including chimpanzees, blue monkeys, L'Hoest's monkeys and the very rare red colobus.
A tailor-made holiday to Uganda is one you’ll remember forever.
