Uganda

A country of Contrasts

Uganda is a flourishing land of contrasts, most of which still feels undiscovered. Home to soaring mountains, the world’s longest river and forests that have survived the test of time, its diverse terrain makes for an explorer’s paradise. As the country’s tumultuous past recedes, its pristine national parks and natural beauty make for some of the most soul-stirring wildlife encounters.

Encounter

Gorillas and Chimpanzees

High up in the mist-shrouded mountains of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, you can find gorillas residing in the bamboo groves. Trekking through the thick vegetation may be tough, but with around 880 gorillas left in the world, half of which reside in Bwindi, up-close encounters are truly rewarding. Further north in Kibale, its ancient land is home to extraordinary wildlife including chimpanzees which can be seen crashing through the forest canopy. Explore the national park with an expert chimp researcher to gain unparalleled insight.

Rare Wildlife

The Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts some of the highest biodiversity of any game park in the world. With open savannah dappled with wildlife, papyrus swamps and wide-open lakes, the landscape is vast and varied. Venture out to see flamingoes speckling the crater lakes and tree-climbing Ugandan cobs dozing in the fig trees. The best time to explore the park is at sunrise, gliding over in a hot air balloon as you watch the earth come alive.

Rivers and Waterfalls

In the northwest of Uganda, Murchison Falls National Park is powerfully beautiful. The Nile twists through arid semi-desert, rocky kopjes and squeezes through an 8m wide gorge. Take a boat out on the river in search of rare wetland birds or go fishing for the famous Nile-perch at the foot of the falls. Aside from the animals that congregate at the water's edge, Uganda's well-known plains game scatter across the papyrus-fringed savannah including healthy numbers of lions, giraffe and hartebeest to name but a few.

Venturesome Safari

Tucked into the corner of north-east Uganda, Kidepo boasts a real sense of wilderness. Revelling in diverse topography, the mountainous terrain and valleys are more typical of Kenya than the rest of Uganda. Vast tracts of land make for exciting walking safaris and spot-lit night drives tracking herds of roaming predators such as lion, cheetah and spotted hyena. Those intrepid enough, can hike Mount Morugole where the Ik tribe resides in one of the most remote indigenous villages in East Africa.
