What makes Uganda safaris so different from other safaris to Africa, is a multitude of reasons! Firstly, for anyone who is searching for a slightly more ‘old fashioned’ Africa – or an Africa as it was 50 years ago before tourists started demanding 5 star, designer led lodges – then this is for you! Of course, anyone wanting to track gorillas and chimpanzees – well, this definitely is for you! Then, you have the most magnificent scenery – the most wonderful, friendly and courteous people – and finally, superb wildlife in the Kidepo National Park, where one of the most beautiful lodges in Africa exists!
The birdlife is simply stunning – especially on Lakes Edward and Albert – and one can take a boat to get close up. Then one has tree climbing lions in the Ishasha region of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Murchison Falls is quite a site to behold as well. Spend time with habituated chimpanzees on Ngamba Island and become a keeper for the day.
There is also the opportunity to horse ride in one area.
The Ruwenzoris provide the perfect backdrop to this breathtakingly beautiful country and all one can really say, is do go there – and don’t leave it too late!
