Our newest destination is the “Pearl of Africa”, Uganda. So far discovered by few tourists, Uganda is still virtually untouched and pure.
Uganda is a country of many surprises with rolling hills, sparkling crater lakes, abundant wildlife, adrenaline activities and, of course, the endangered Mountain Gorillas of which half of the worlds 800 remaining population live here. Uganda is still authentically African, lush green and home to the friendliest people on the continent. This is a country where you can track mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Forest, see tree climbing lions in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and go chimpanzee tracking in the Kibale Forest. It is also home to 13 types of primates;
ten national parks displaying the best of East Africa. Their Rift Valley landscapes and tropical forests make dramatic backdrops to an extensive variety of flora and fauna. Managed by Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), the parks offer ‘traditional’ savanna safaris along with boat tours, forest hikes, mountain climbing and wildlife research activities.
If you are a birding enthusiast , second to the Pantanal’s in Brazil, Uganda is unrivalled on the continent as a bird watching destination with over 1,000 species of birds – several of which are found nowhere else on the planet.
