Uganda Holiday Safari Tour Packages
Called the ‘Pearl of Africa’ by Winston Churchill, Uganda is certainly brimming with wildlife treasures including tracking mountain gorillas, shadowing a troupe of chimpanzees and spotting the Big Five. Uganda was widely considered Africa’s foremost safari holiday destination in the 1960’s, which is easy to believe as you travel to the heart of the rugged wilderness on the easy to navigate network of roads or, if you are pushed for time, taking advantage of the charter flights. Uganda receives fewer visitors than neighboring Kenya and Tanzania meaning your wildlife adventures in this diverse country will have a wonderful feeling of seclusion.
Uganda is full of cosy and relaxing accommodation in picturesque locations, the ideal places for you to unwind during your trip. You’ll hear the welcoming cries of ‘Hello Mzungi!’ from the friendly Ugandans as you arrive at your lodge, always excited to proudly share their incredible home with you. Alongside all the adventurous ventures into the rainforest it is possible to spend time relaxing on the beach or jump on a boat bound for the idyllic Bugalo Island for a stay at the luxury Pineapple Bay.
We offer a range of small intimate group tours and tailor made Uganda holidays complied by our travel experts ranging from five to 17 days. Slightly smaller then the UK and astonishingly diverse, holidays to Uganda are a unique experience filled with authentic wildlife spotting opportunities.
Following in the primate’s footsteps
Nothing matches the breath-taking atmosphere of coming into contact and sharing the dense jungle with mountain gorillas. Resting on the edge of Rift Valley sits the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a dense mist-covered rainforest amongst the volcanic hills sheltering gorillas, chimpanzees, black-and-white colobus and blue monkeys. Although the trek is a strenuous hard day’s work nothing compares to the golden hour you will spend watching these magnificent creatures, peering at each other through the leaves of the rich, verdant forest. After six hours of trekking and the adrenaline rush of your gorilla encounter, you will be looking for a comfortable resting place to rest your feet close to the park. The Buhoma Lodge provides the perfect answer. One of the original lodges of the park, the en suite rooms provides stunning views of the rainforest from your private veranda.
An alternative, yet no less fascinating or exhilarating, primate experience is a visit to western Uganda and the Kibale Forest. Journeying through the gorgeous tropical forest, your guide will lead you to a barrel of chimpanzees where you will observe these energetic wild animals swinging from the trees up above, playing together and setting up their nests for their nights sleep.
