There are few places on earth like the western highlands of Uganda. In a corner of the country you travel from the hot savanna plains of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, to the highlands of Kigezi with its scenic lakes of which Bunyonyi is the most famous. From there you travel farther up into the skies of Mgahinga where three countries share extinct volcanoes. And to summit it all is Africa’s highest mountain range the Rwenzori Mountains, also known as the Mountains of the Moon.
In this area, you will find over 700 bird species. Bwindi and Mgahinga between them have over 51% of the world’s remaining 1,0000 endangered mountain gorillas. Ishasha is the best place to find the only other population of tree climbing lions. From birds to lions, plains to snow and glaciers, mountain tops to valley rivers, and cultural diversity- you will find it all here. Let us take you to the gorilla highlands of Uganda.
