Wildlife Holidays in Uganda

Boasting an intricate tapestry of fascinating landscapes and rare wildlife, Uganda is a true feast for the eyes. Breaking records when it comes to the world’s largest river, (the Nile) and Africa’s highest mountain range (the Rwenzori), Uganda is also known for its excellent national parks that offer a unique insider view into the life of mountain gorillas.

For a truly awe-inspiring East African wildlife holiday, our Chimps and Gorillas of Uganda trip ticks every traveller’s bucket list. Cascading waterfall trails and chimp-tracking reign supreme in Kibale Forest National Park. With 13 different species, from the blue monkey to Uganda mangabey, the park claims to have one of the highest primate densities in the world amidst its wild coffee trees. For great photo opportunities, head towards Queen Elizabeth N.P to snap tree-climbing lions and continue onto Murchison Falls to catch a glimpse of waterbucks and crocodiles hidden in the riverbanks.

The Gorillas & Masai Mari Camping wildlife holiday offers an exciting exploration into the vast national reserve of Masai Mara, where cheetahs, wildebeests and Thomason’s gazelles migrate from the Serengeti plains every summer. But the real treat lies in spending time with mountain gorillas on the misty peaks of Bwindi.
