Legends Of Uganda
Entebbe | Kidepo Valley | Murchison Falls | Bwindi
Your safari starts and ends in Entebbe.
Long after western explorers first walked the vibrant red soil of Uganda and named her the “Pearl of Africa”, tourism is thriving here, people come to marvel at the country’s natural beauty, diverse wildlife and fascinating cultures.
Uganda’s landscape is uniquely diverse. From the wildlife inhabited savannah plains to glacier covered mountains, tracking endangered mountain gorillas in the rainforest to rushing down the rapids of the mighty Nile. Chimpanzee tracking, find the elusive Shoebill and more than 1000 other bird species in the country. For the more adventurous travellers, mountain biking, volcano hiking and kayaking is possible.
Uganda is located on the equator. Temperatures average between 22 and 32ºC. In the high lying areas the temperatures can drop quite dramatically at night. This is normally in areas such as Bwindi, Kisoro, Lake Bunyonyi, Mount Elgon, Sipi Falls and the Rwenzori Mountains. Its not always easy to predict when the rains will fall each year, typically heavy rains occur from March to May with a light rainy season in November and December. Most of December has sunny and warm days.
Uganda is a land of contrasts. In half a day you can drive from mist-shrouded volcanic mountains to hot hazy savannah, dappled with wildlife. Serene undulating hills of tea plantations give way to tangled jungle and rainforest with the musical accompaniment of chaotic, cacophonous birdlife.The tiniest sunbirds, iridescent in the morning light, the massive lumbering yet silent elephant, disappearing like a vapor behind the trees, the chimpanzees crashing about the forest canopy, the lugubrious gorilla, chewing thoughtfully in the bamboo thicket.
Let us show you the Uganda we know and love. This is Africa: the way it should be!
