Uganda is home to an abundance of wildlife, including the Big Five – lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, and rhinos. Going on a wildlife safari allows you to witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. From the vast savannahs of Queen Elizabeth National Park to the dense forests of Murchison Falls National Park, there is an array of national parks and reserves to explore. Embarking on a game drive or a guided safari walk gives you the chance to spot lions lounging in the sun, herds of elephants grazing peacefully, and giraffes gracefully roaming the plains.

But Uganda is not just about its wildlife; it is also renowned for its critically endangered mountain gorillas. Gorilla trekking is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that allows you to come face-to-face with these majestic creatures. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park are the two destinations where you can embark on this extraordinary adventure. With only a limited number of permits available each day, gorilla trekking offers an intimate and exclusive encounter with these gentle giants. As you hike through the dense forests, following an experienced guide, the anticipation builds. And when you finally set eyes on a gorilla family, observing their behaviours and interactions, it’s a profound and humbling experience.

By combining a wildlife safari with gorilla trekking, you get the best of both worlds. You can explore the diverse landscapes of Uganda, encounter a wide range of wildlife, and immerse yourself in the unique culture of the local communities. Each day is a new adventure, filled with awe-inspiring moments and memories that will last a lifetime.
