Tours In Uganda

Uganda offers a greater diversity of wildlife, people and landscapes than any other African destination, placing Ugandan safaris amongst the richest experiences Africa has to offer. Uganda is home to quickly varying landscapes: semi-deserts in the northeast, lush lowlands fringing the shores of Lake Victoria, the mountain rainforests of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Rwenzoris (the Mountains of the Moon) in the south-west.

Such diverse topographies create habitats for a kaleidoscope of unique wildlife. Lion, leopard buffalo, giraffe, elephant giraffe and a variety of antelope common, including the endemic Uganda kob all roam the savannahs, whilst the forests are home to chimpanzees, ten species of monkeys and the mountains are the kingdoms of the endangered mountain gorilla.

Whilst the mountain gorillas are Uganda’s most talked about asset, Uganda is considered the continent’s finest birding country, with some 1,000 recorded species, and amongst them the extremely rare shoe-billed stork.

Certainly! Let’s explore some of Uganda’s captivating tourist destinations:

1.Gorilla Watching in Bwindi National Park: -A main reason to visit Uganda from a nature perspective is to enjoy incredible mountain gorilla trekking tours. The gorillas are only found in this region. Mountain gorillas differ from their lowland cousins as their fur is thicker and adapted to the colder temperature at high altitude. Gorillas live in groups of around 10 individuals and are led by the most powerful silverback. To see these animals, you can enjoy gorilla tours from Kisoro, which is about 460 kilometers (290 miles) from the capital city of Kampala. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, named after the forest’s many stands of bamboo, is one of the best places to see the gorillas. Bwindi also protects around 90 species of mammals, including 10 different primates. There are currently about 400 gorillas in Bwindi, and the number has been increasing steadily over the years. Many researchers attribute the slow growth of the population to visitors wanting to see the gorillas, which helps provide money and global attention for these remarkable animals.
