Welcome for your African safari adventure

An incredible journey to Uganda – The home of African safaris:

“The kingdom of Uganda is a fairy-tale” – Winston Churchill, 1907.

Beautiful, small and an adored home to extraordinary range of cultures and diverse relief, Uganda is a country blessed by Mother Nature and an ideal destination for safaris in Africa.

Uganda is endowed with verdant nature, abundant wildlife and diverse geography. Located astride the equator where the East African Savannah intersects central African Jungle in the middle of the Great Rift Valley lies the pearl of Africa.

It is perched in the African Great Lakes region with several major lakes including a large portion of Lake Victoria, and has an adored and friendly climate all year through, with average rainfall and pleasant sunshine.

How do you then miss out on a Uganda safari? A land of mesmerizing beauty, a gorgeous garden, from end to end filled with life both nature and people.

Uganda has over 60 protected areas, including 10 national parks and 11 game reserves; others include tropical forests, wetlands, conservancy areas, water bodies, etc. all which are habitats of up to 330 species of mammals and over 1000 species of birds including Africa’s popular Big Five mammals – Rhinoceros, Elephants, lions, Leopards and Buffaloes.

Uganda is also one of the last refuges of the critically endangered mountain gorillas and Chimpanzees. It is home to Mountains of the Moon, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and much of the northern shores of Lake Victoria which form the source of River Nile.

Uganda is a magical spot that captivates and avails sensational wildlife experiences that travelers treasure for a lifetime.

Other places to visit for wildlife safaris in Uganda.

The first port of call for visitors in Uganda is unquestionably Bwindi impenetrable national park. A famously renowned hub for endangered mountain gorillas, Bwindi also doubles as a UNESCO world heritage site and an excellent home for gorilla safaris in Uganda. Her lush alpine forests now shelter almost half of the world’s total mountain gorilla population.  Bwindi is not just a place to read about, it’s truly a “place to be”. Take a holiday safari to Uganda and discover this source of happiness.

Legendary Lake Victoria is another destination worth to remember. More like a sea, Lake Victoria is known to be the largest fresh water lake in Africa. It provides visitors with a remarkable opportunity to view the source of River Nile, under take sun rise and sun set boat cruises, island hopping, and lots of fun and adventure around Jinja, including bungee jumping and white water rafting.

Take a Uganda wildlife safari to Murchison falls national park to quench your travel thirst with the lively splashes of Uhuru and Murchison falls as you view them from the top.

Murchison falls is arguably the most powerful waterfall in the world with its beautiful sound of waters roaring, and crashing on the rocks below the cold ice mist that captures attention of every traveler to come for an adventure tour in Uganda.

A boat cruise from Paraa jetty brings you close to numerous basks of Nile crocodiles and herds of hippos, and other amazing mammals including herds of elephants, buffaloes and beautiful birds that flock banks of the river to find water during sunny afternoons.

A simple top of the falls hike rewards visitors with panoramic views of a permanent rainbow formed in between the rocks. Honestly, Murchison falls national park is one unique spot for romance and holiday tours in Uganda.

Track chimpanzees in Kibale forest national park. Located in south western Uganda, this is a proud capital of primates in Africa, because of the presence of abundant primate species like the Baboons, Red Colobus Monkeys, rare L’Hoests monkey and most notably over 1500 chimpanzees, with almost a half of them well habituated for tracking.

Also resident in this park are 325 bird species and a myriad of forest mammals, such as push pigs, forest elephants, buffaloes, etc.
