“The Pearl of Africa” is synonymous for the endangered Mountain Gorillas. These live in its remote southern forests in Bwindi Forest. Yet Uganda safaris have so much more to offer – not just gorilla trekking but also the widest range of primates in Africa including the golden monkeys in Bwindi and chimpanzees in Kibale National Park, Semliki Wildlife Reserve and Semliki National Park.
Uganda safaris meander through varied landscapes with vivid tropical forests alive with birdsong, snow-capped peaks, classic savanna plains dotted with game and beautiful lakes and wetland areas. Mass tourism is unknown and the people of Uganda are friendly and welcoming.
These are just some of the lodges available, for information on bespoke itineraries contact our reservations team:
