A Uganda safari will take you through this land of great diversity, beauty and opportunity. A less travelled destination which gives you all the Big 5 plus two – the mountain gorillas, and chimpanzees. Little wonder, the country has been voted the best place to raise a family and also won the accolade for most welcoming country in 2017 for both security and attitude to guests.
Located in the heart of Africa, Uganda is rich in wildlife, nature, culture, heritage and history. Its biological and cultural diversity is unmatched for a country the size of Great Britain, Ghana or the American state of Oregon.
Over 50% of the world’s mountain gorillas call Uganda home. And for that, UNESCO has classified Bwindi Impenetrable National Park a World Heritage Site. The world’s oldest forest and the endangered mountain gorillas are now a heritage for you and the rest of the world to experience and enjoy.
Beyond the gorilla highlands, the Uganda safari will take you through the savannah national parks. This will bring you face to face with the Big Five (Elephant, lion, leopard, cape buffalo and rhino), reptiles and over 50% of Africa’s bird and butterfly species.
And there is more to see beyond the grasslands. Almost 33% of Uganda’s land mass is covered by lakes, rivers and wetlands. This offers opportunity for activities like whitewater rafting, kayaking and canoeing. The most famous waterway is the Nile River, the world’s longest river.
River Nile gets most of its water from the glaciers of Mt. Rwenzori, the highest mountain range in Africa. This mystical mountain the ancient Greeks called the Mountains of the Moon, a wonderland of plants, animals and birds for explorer in you.
Whether you have been to here before or not, your next visit will certainly be very different as you revel in this fairy tale of Uganda, the Pearl of Africa.
