Uganda is a stunningly beautiful country which offers a wide range of activities for the active and adventurous traveler. In addition to being one of only three places on Earth to track the endangered mountain gorilla, a unique and very special experience, Uganda offers so much more: traditional safari game drives, boat excursions, hikes, chimpanzee tracking, white water rafting, and cultural interactions. Uganda is truly one of East Africa’s best kept secrets.
The landscape of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is as stunning as it is diverse with dense bamboo forests, waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, and the largest lake in Africa, Lake Victoria. Visitors to Bwindi may have an opportunity to trek through the park’s dense vegetation in search of the mountain gorilla. Witnessing the gorillas in the wild is an experience only a few are privileged to enjoy each day. It is an awe-inspiring experience that cannot be missed.
Kibale Forest is home to 11 species of primates, including chimpanzees, mangabey, and red Colobus monkeys, as well as 300 species of birds, and a brilliant array of butterflies. In addition to being a natural habitat for an amazing number of primate species, Kibale Forest is also home to Buffalo, Uganda Kob, Genet, Civet, Waterbuck and Bushbuck, and, while rarely seen, the largest population of Forest Elephant in Uganda. At the eastern side of the national park visitors will find Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary where you can encounter a variety of birds and butterflies.
