Uganda is home to more than half of the world’s remaining mountain gorilla’s, over 5,000 chimpanzees and the largest number of monkeys and baboons. Boasting some incredible wildlife experiences and mind-blowing landscapes in a comfortable tropical climate, Uganda is a delight for travellers.
Tracking the gorillas and chimps is one of the most enthralling wildlife experiences in the world, and the majority of trips to Uganda will include at least one of these experiences. Yet this beautiful country offers a lot more than encounters with the endangered primates. Uganda also has some extraordinary trekking and hiking routes, most notably in the Rwenzori Mountains, one of the few places in Africa where thick forest vegetation morphs into snow-capped peaks and dangling icicles as you ascend. The lakes and rapids of Uganda also provide opportunities for outdoor activities like white-water rafting, kayaking and canoeing. Boat safaris and horse riding is also possible, and you can even witness Uganda from above via hot-air balloon or bungee jumping.
If you have an interest in East Africa’s primates, birds and culture, including a journey to Uganda on your safari is for you. See the endangered mountain gorilla in Uganda's Bwindi Forest, spend a full day with the chimpanzees at Kibale, track golden monkeys in Mgahinga, see plains game in Queen Elizabeth National Park, the tree-climbing lions of the Ishasha plains, go on a boat cruise on the Kazinga channel or hike some the of the highest peaks on the continent – you will not be short of options in Uganda.
