Uganda is a jewel in East Africa’s tourism crown. Its stunning scenery, amongst the friendliest people anywhere, as well as primates and fantastic activities makes Uganda a must-see country. It is also a gateway to Rwanda – home of the magnificent yet endangered mountain gorillas.

 

Uganda is one of Africa’s smallest countries but it’s a home to some of its biggest stars, including mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and the spectacular river Nile. With the most beautiful landscapes, amazing rainforests, breath-taking gorges and striking Savannahs, Uganda is sure to leave an everlasting impression.

 

The highlight of visiting Kibale National Park is the opportunity to track chimpanzees, and for particularly keen naturalists, the rare opportunity to take part in a chimpanzee habituation experience where you can spend a day observing them. Bwindi National Park has 350 mountain gorillas living among its dense forest. Trek through the thick, green undergrowth to witness these endangered creatures in their natural habitat; the sight of a shy, seven-foot silverback and his children playing in the branches above has to be one of Africa’s greatest experiences. The bigger mammals are easier to find in Uganda’s largest national park, Murchison Falls. Manicured by the roll of the River Nile, its waterfalls are the centrepiece of the cutting Rift Valley rocks and lush, dark green landscape.
