Escorted Tours and Gorilla Trekking Holidays in Uganda

Uganda is a compact country with a lot to offer, including jaw-dropping scenery, fantastically friendly people and once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounters. At the heart of Uganda’s tourism appeal are its famous great apes, and a gorilla trek through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is an absolute must-do. Uganda has Africa’s highest concentration of primate species, including baboons, colobus monkeys and one of our closest cousins, the fascinating chimpanzee.

Uganda is also a fantastic destination for a more conventional safari, with all of the ‘Big Five’ present and some of the best birdwatching in Africa. For a small country Uganda packs in some seriously super-sized scenery, including the loftiest mountain range in Africa, the Rwenzori, and the continent’s largest body of water, Lake Victoria, which is also the source of the White Nile. You’ll soon discover why Uganda is known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, with a landscape of dense rainforest, rolling savannah, stunning crater lakes and spectacular waterfalls.

 

Touring Highlights of Uganda

  • Approximately half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas live in the misty forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and a trek through the dense foliage to see these creatures up close is a truly unforgettable experience.
  • The White Nile tumbles 43 metres into Lake Albert at Murchison Falls, and the surrounding National Park is home to wildlife including lions, giraffes, elephants and hippos.
  • Kibale Forest National Park has the highest concentration of primates in Africa, with 13 different species including chimpanzees, red colobus monkeys and L’Hoest’s monkeys.
  • Once thought to be the source of the Nile, Jinja is now Uganda’s outdoor adventure capital, offering white water rafting, quad biking, bungee jumping, kayaking and more.
  • Lake Victoria is the biggest lake in Africa, rich in birdlife and scattered with islands fringed by beautiful beaches that come as a bit of a surprise in landlocked Uganda.
