Uganda Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Uganda Safari

Get to Know Uganda

In Uganda’s southwestern corner, the lush, mountainous forest of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park conserves the country’s most alluring natural asset: around 400 mountain gorillas, or half of the world’s remaining wild population.

Most people come to Bwindi – Uganda’s most popular tourist safari destination – to track these magnificent apes (more than a hundred of which have been habituated), which involves an adventurous hike on hilly tracks through the misty tropical rainforest.

Along the way, there are 120 other mammals to spot, including forest duikers, rare l’Hoest monkeys, olive baboons, bushbuck, black-and-white Colobus monkeys, seldom seen forest elephants, and an incredible number of avian creatures: 220 species of butterfly and 350 bird species.

FAQs about Uganda

  • Entebbe is a city in Uganda's south-central region.
  • Entebbe is located 21 miles (34 kilometers) south of Kampala, at the tip of a peninsula jutting into Lake Victoria.
  • Trekking for gorillas in Uganda or Rwanda is very similar and provides the same kind of life-changing experience. However, Uganda has more gorillas so there will be a better chance of not being disappointed as you are likely to have more sightings in Uganda.
  • Although some of the game parks have become quite overrun with tourists during certain times of the year, there are still many very remote and untouched areas to view games in Africa two examples of this are in Northern Mozambique and Uganda.
