Welcome to Uganda, the “pearl of Africa” and the source of the mighty river Nile. Although Uganda is best known for its gorilla, the country is the richest for birds in Africa. A record of 1005 bird species has not been identified, ranging from the highland bird specialties which include the African green broad bill in Bwindi to the lowland and water birds which include the African fin foot at Lake Mburo.

Mountain gorillas are endangered species. Today there are only an estimated 650 Mountain Gorillas remaining, half of which are located in the Bwindi Impenetrable forest in Uganda. Gorilla trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park has been described as the most profound natural history experiences in the world and the park has been designated a World Heritage Site.

During your visit to Uganda, a day spent in Kibale Forest searching for chimpanzee, one of man’s closest relative is well worth your, and so is Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda’s most popular game reserve and certainly one most scenic.

Following is our range of sample safaris in Uganda. Other than the sampled tours, we also create tailor-made itineraries to suit individual and/or group interests. If you do not find one that meets your requirement, please send us an e-mail telling us your ideas and we will work together to design your itinerary

Permits to view gorillas in Uganda are in high demand, with only 12 people per day being allowed to view at Bwindi Forest. A percentage of the permits at Bwindi are sold 12 months in advance and the balance are sold three months prior to trekking. It is important to book at least 4 months prior.
