Gorillas, Chimps, birds galore and exquisite landscapes on a bespoke Uganda safari

Gorillas, Chimpanzees, a myriad birds and stunningly varied scenery await visitors in this mesmerising pocket of Africa

Endangered mountain gorillas; troops of wild chimpanzees; incredible vast tracts of primary rainforest; over 1000 species of birds; the Big 5; majestic Lake Victoria; the White Nile…Uganda’s roll-call of highlights could go on and on. The country is also home to some of the friendliest people who must own the biggest smiles in Africa. No wonder Winston Churchill loved this place!

Uganda is fast becoming a destination where a lot of the experiences are based on ‘doing’ rather than just ‘seeing’. The range of activities on offer is endless, from game drives and guided wildlife walks in search of diurnal and nocturnal wildlife, to canoeing, hiking, launch cruises, exhilarating white-water rafting, and more – visitors are truly spoilt for choice!

Uganda is home to almost half of the world's remaining wild mountain gorillas, of which 15 of these families are habituated, so they accept human visitors once a day. Crouching in the thick jungle with nothing in between you and a 200 kg Silverback has to be the most impressive wildlife encounter to be had anywhere in the world. And you are able to do this on a smaller budget than if you were visiting Rwanda, where recently costs have spiralled.

For birders, few African destinations can compete with Uganda in terms of a truly gratifying experience – the species list exceeds 1,000, at the top of which is surely the exceedingly rare, monstrous, swamp-dependent Shoebill.

If these gems aren't enough for you then there are also some of the least frequented National Parks in all of East Africa to explore, where good lion and some exceptional leopard sightings can be seen. Alternatively, just sit back and marvel at the world’s second largest body of freshwater and the beginnings of the world’s longest river whilst enjoying some outstanding Ugandan hospitality.

Best time to visit Uganda.
