An unforgettable wildlife experience with the gentle giants that are the gorillas of Bwindi seeing the very best of Uganda, the 'Pearl of Africa'
Uganda is a small country but don't let that fool you, the 'Pearl of Africa' has so much to be discover, including the tallest mountain range, the largest lake and the source of the longest river in Africa.
With fewer visitors than its East African neighbours, Uganda boasts a more authentic and less predictable experience, with all the delights and frustrations that brings with it.
Wildlife is an area where Uganda excels in and a tour here offers some truly spectacular and unique experiences, most notably the tracking of gorillas through the mist in Bwindi National Park. Of the estimated 900 mountain gorillas in existence, half live in troops in the UNESCO protected Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mghinga National Park.
There is an abundance of wildlife not only in the jungles where you will see chimpanzees and rare birds, but also on the savannahs where you can spy shoebill storks and the tree climbing lions of Ishasha. Enjoy the wildlife and birdlife of Queen Elizabeth National Park, which boasts one of the highest bio diversity ratings of any game park.
