Safaris Visiting Uganda

Though a landlocked country in East Africa, Uganda has diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife.  Our safaris visiting Uganda take you many fascinating and remarkable places there.

safaris visiting Uganda Bwindi Impenetrable National Park gorilla gorillaRemote Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a bio-diverse, mountainous area in southwest Uganda. It’s home to many of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, who feed on roots, leaves and fruits from the park’s many tree and fern species and is a renowned mountain gorilla sanctuary, where restricted numbers of viewing permits help protect the endangered gorilla families. In the park, rough paths weave amid dense forests, which are home to many butterflies and birds.

Best known for its namesake Murchison Falls, a 43m-tall waterfall where the Victoria Nile River surges through a narrow gap over a massive drop, this national park is home to a wide range of wildlife and habitats. Wildlife here includes elephants and hippos, and chimpanzees in the Kaniyo Pabidi mahogany forest.  The Lake Albert Delta is home to rare shoebill storks and there are game fish in the cascades of Karuma Falls.
