Uganda is first of all known for the mountain gorilla tracking, but this beautiful country has way more to offer. You can see big game the wonderful safari parks like Queen Elizabeth NP and the still unknown Kidepo Valley NP, the primates in the rainforests, the amazing waterfalls and the beautifull lakes.
Uganda is called “The pearl of Africa” for many good reasons. As Winston Churchill wrote: “For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is truly “The Pearl of Africa.”
Lonely Planet stated that Uganda is the number 1 travel destination in the world! Ever wondered why? It’s not only because of the amazing gorilla tracking and chimpanzee tracking. Of course the gorillatracking is a “once in a lifetime experience” and Lonely Planet states that this is the number 1 activity to do in East-Africa, but there is so much more to Uganda. Uganda is located on the equator and for this reason very fertile and green. The diversity in landscape is stunning and enables you to do so much more than only safari.
You really can’t miss out on going on chimpanzee tracking or make a shoebill safari around the Mabamba swamps. Visit the wonderful lakes like Lake Victoria, Lake Bunyonyi and Lake Mutanda. Uganda is a great safari destination as well. You are able to make great game drives and spot giraffe, lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and so much more. Besides that you can make some unique and spectacularboat safaris on the Nile or the Kazinga channel to watch bathing elephant, huge crocs, thousands of hippos and colorful birds from close range. As well you can make bush walks, night game drives and a horseback riding safari in Lake Mburo NP.
