Uganda Safaris and Trekking

This country will take your breath away, from the magnificent landscapes, to the warm atmosphere radiating everywhere you go. Full of adventure, prolific birdlife, the big five and incredible gorillas, there’s many reasons why we think Uganda is one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world.

Gorilla safaris.

Uganda is well-known for its mountain gorilla trekking, and believe us, it deserves the recognition. We can’t wait for you to experience this special moment. Found in Bwindi and Mgahinga, the 13 gorilla families are phenomenal – your time with these gentle giants will be life changing, so we’d recommend taking 10 minutes away from the camera to truly take it all in and enjoy their reserved nature. With Rwanda's gorilla trekking permits rising in price, Uganda's treks are becoming ever more popular for wildlife enthusiasts.


Discovering other wildlife.

Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale is just as magical - feeling the adrenaline rise as a crescendo of grunting echoes through the trees is so enchanting. A habituation experience is remarkable too – you’ll spend the whole day following a pack and watching as they swing and forage through the trees.

We’re fond of the primates here, too. No doubt you’ll see the likes of golden monkeys, l’hoest’s monkeys and Uganda mangabey on your trip, especially along the Bigodi Wetlands Walk. Over 1,000 species of bird flock to Uganda too – Semliki is perfect for birdlife enthusiasts, and we love the shoebill stork.


Full of adrenaline activities.

Uganda is brimming with adventure, and Jinja is our favourite spot for an adrenaline rush, whether its white water rafting or bungee jumping. A walking safari in Lake Mburo is unmissable too, the game are very relaxed and wander close by, whilst Murchison River is perfect for a tranquil boat tour to see the cascading waterfall.


Finding the Big Seven.

Known as the land of the ‘Big Seven’, you can truly see it all when it comes to wildlife. Queen Elizabeth National Park is one of the best areas to find them – the winding Kazinga Channel in Mweya is ideal for spotting hippo, buffalo and leopards, whilst tree-climbing lions make Ishasha their home. The gorge in Kyambura is amazing too, with a troupe of 24 chimpanzees residing in its lush forest.

Our team are extremely passionate about Uganda, and we have plenty of rustic lodges, impressive adventures and magnificent wildlife we can’t wait to share with you.
