Africa's green paradise
Spectacular landscapes, rolling hills and dense wooden trees where chimpanzees and gorillas live in their natural environment make a visit to Uganda a 'once in a lifetime' experience. Because every trip to Uganda is unique, we have not published suggested itineraries, but instead have chosen to share with you, an overview of the most important areas before consulting with you and curating your dream trip.
The meandering river Nile and the impressive Murchison waterfalls make this national park a great habitat for animals. During a safari along the river you can see some of the largest crocodiles in Africa. What's more, there are plenty of hippos, elephants and birds that inhabit the banks of the river. Of course, a visit to the waterfalls should not be missed, where the water of the Nile falls through a narrow gorge 43 meters deep.
Here you will search for chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Seeing chimpanzees in the wild, floating from branch to branch in the tall trees of the forest, is a legendary moment. Although they are sometimes difficult to spot, their presence is evident by the shrill cries that are audible everywhere.
The Bigodi Wetland Reserve is home to countless butterflies, plants and animals. Bird lovers will enjoy themselves here. This is also the area of the rare Red Colobus monkey and Sitatunga antelope.
Queen Elizabeth National Park
The Queen Elizabeth National Park is the western arm of the great African Rift Valley and is located around Lake Edward and Lake George. Within this beautiful park you will find an abundance of animals such as tree-climbing lions. During a walk in the Kyambura Gorge you will have the chance to see chimpanzees. A boat trip on the Kanzinga canal is also very impressive with one of the largest hippopotamus populations in the world, but elephants, buffalo and other animals also find their way to the water here.
For a true gorilla adventure, visit the prehistoric Bwindi forest. After the trip through the steep, densely overgrown hills you arrive at the gorillas that stop in the camouflage of the green vegetation. The search for the gorillas can take the whole day and is a special experience, but requires good conditions.
