Spectacular wildlife, stunning landscapes and fascinating culture make this Uganda Highlights journey an unforgettable and exhilarating experience. Packed with adventure and excitement, this tour gives you an in-depth insight into this beautiful country.
Whilst tourism here is in its infancy, a holiday to Uganda is beginning to seduce increasing numbers of visitors with mighty mountains, formidable white-water rafting rapids, picture perfect silver lakes, and half of the world’s last remaining Mountain Gorillas. Described by Winston Churchill as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, this infectious country inspires those with a spirit for adventure eager to spot tree-climbing lions, cruise down the Nile, explore fairytale lakeside islands, meet Africa’s friendliest people, and hang out with the world’s highest concentration of primates.
Fewer places on the planet offer such an array of eco-tourism activities as Uganda, East Africa's less-travelled gem, a country bordered by Kenya, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania. But most come for three reasons: world class trekking, face-to-face encounters with gorillas, and safaris in the country’s plentiful national parks.
Uganda’s capital, Kampala, is a flurrying introduction, with the largest market in East Africa, the UNESCO listed Kasubi Tombs, one of the world’s seven Bahai temples, Africa’s second largest mosque, and the best nightlife on the entire continent. But if you’re more swayed by heart-pounding excitement, just a couple of hours away, the source of the Nile at Jinja is one of the world’s most exhilarating white-water rafting hotspots and the adventure capital of East Africa.
Groundbreaking adventure, though, for most, starts and ends with up-close encounters with Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This UNESCO-listed site is one of the most bio diverse areas of the planet and serves as a sanctuary for half of the world’s population of these gentle giants, along with chimpanzees, forest elephants, almost a dozen other primate species and hundreds of bird species.
Further nature-rich delights include spotting tree-climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and tracking chimpanzees and 335 bird species in Kibale Forest National Park which sits surrounded by over fifty mesmerising crater lakes. Equally enthralling is Kidepo Valley National Park, a pristine wilderness often referred to as Africa’s best National Park by seasoned safari goers, boasting big game, walking safaris and some of East Africa’s rarest birds all in complete solitude.
For pure drama, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is the stuff of the dawn of time as it sits across the green slopes of three brooding volcanoes which are home to Mountain Gorillas, rare Golden Monkeys , elephants and the mysterious Batwa Pygmies.
For the ultimate adventure traveller, summiting Mt Stanley in Rwenzori Mountains National Park will take you to equatorial glaciers, alien-like landscapes and enormous jagged slopes. You will be standing on Africa’s third highest and most challenging peak, where fewer people have stood than the summit of Mt Everest.
