Uganda MapPrimates, mammals, birds, flora and fauna beyond your wildest dreams, Uganda safaris are like no other. Experience an off the beaten track adventure, full of discovery for travellers looking for the unexpected.   Of course the gorillas are a highlight, but there is so much more that this hugely diverse country has to offer.

Uganda straddles the Equator between the eastern and western branches of the Great Rift Valley.  With a high rainfall, unsurprisingly 25% of its surface area is made up of lakes, streams and rivers.  Its lush rainforests, savannah and semi-desert areas are inhabited by a prolific variety of animals and birds.

Perhaps the most famous inhabitants are the Mountain Gorilla (currently six habituated groups) in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  A few hours spent watching these gentle giants play, eat and groom each other is a very memorable and incredible experience.  Stay at a lodge at over 2,000m above sea level with beautiful panoramic views of the Virunga Volcanos and the Great Rift Valley.  Find over 560 species of bird and mammals from primates to small antelope, as well as nocturnal animals such as bush babies, genets and civets.READ MORE
