Winston Churchill called Uganda "The Pearl of Africa." The country has recovered substantially from the disastrous decade of Idi Amin and is seen as a beacon of prosperity and growth in Africa. As a consequence of its lower profile, you will see some of the most spectacularly diverse and least visited national parks in Africa.
From the steamy, gorilla filled jungle in Bwindi in the south-west to the savannah wilderness of Kidepo on the Sudanese border in the north. From the iconic encounter with tree climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park on Lake Albert to the Lake Victoria basin, you will experience some of the most memorable safari destinations in Africa.
You can choose to fly from point to point or drive to your Uganda Safari destination. Either way, you will not be disappointed by the experience. Gorilla Safaris are most often combined with either Kenya and/or Tanzania, a real easy hop should one be visiting either of those two destinations.
All of the below Safari Itinerary options can easily be tailor-made to suit your budget and requirements.
