UGANDA THE PEARL OF AFRICA
The Uganda Attractions are very spectacular starting from lush green country sides, tropical rainforests, waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, savannah game parks and the thrilling wildlife. The people & culture are unforgettable, a country believed to be with one of the most welcoming, young and joyful people. The highlight of any trip to Uganda would be the close encounter with Bwindi national park’s gentle giants – the Mountain gorillas. Truly overwhelming and emotional that you can tell the story the rest of your life.
With an experienced and informative tour guide, tracking primates especially chimpanzees in Kibale forest national park is another awesome moment that goes hand in hand with gorilla trekking. Without forgetting the cameras, it’s pure fun to capture the humorous hand gestures and facial expressions of the chimpanzees – one of our closest living relatives.
Among Africa’s top Safari destinations, Uganda Attractions have a lot to reward you including sightings of the legendary tree climbing lions, massive concentration of hippos, the biggest elephant herds and an amazing birdlife. Get to see some of the world’s rarest birds like the shoebill in its natural habitat.
Among all other Uganda attractions, the Nile is what will you don’t want to miss. Having its source in Jinja, you will enjoy an amazing adrenaline time rafting down the rapids and bungee jumping over into the water.
But what makes us so passionate about safari holidays to Uganda is the people who are very charming and so welcoming. Once you leave Uganda, your heart will always yearn to come back for another trip!
The Pearl of Africa is worthy of anyone’s bucket list and now would be the time to contact one of our tour specialists for an African safari experience.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked.

Kibale forest National Park contains one of the loveliest and most varied tracts of tropical forest in Uganda. Forest cover, interspersed with patches of grassland and swamp, dominates the northern and central parts of the park on an elevated plateau. Kibale forest national park is home to a total of 70 mammal species, most famously 13 species of primate including the chimpanzee. It also contains over 375 species of birds.

Mgahinga Gorilla national park is yet another haven for the persecuted mountain gorilla. Located on the slopes of the Virunga Mountains in the extreme southwest corner of Uganda, Mgahinga gorilla national park has been set aside to provide a secure habitat for the gorillas. Mgahinga Gorilla National Park sits high in the clouds, at an altitude of between 2,227 m and 4,127 m. As its name suggests, it was created to protect the rare mountain gorillas that inhabit its dense forests, and it is also an important habitat for the endangered golden monkey.

First gazetted as a game reserve in 1926, Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area, hosting 76 species of mammals and 451 birds. This is the largest National Park in Uganda – covering 3,480 sq km – and one of the most spectacular in Africa. The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which plunges 45m over the remnant rift valley wall, creating the dramatic Murchison Falls, the centerpiece of the park and the final event in an 80km stretch of rapids. The mighty cascade drains the last of the river’s energy, transforming it into a broad, placid stream that flows quietly across the rift valley floor into Lake Albert.

The Rwenzori mountains also known as the fabled Mountains of the Moon, lie in western Uganda along the Uganda-Congo border. The mist-shrouded peaks of the Rwenzori mountains provide a stunning backdrop to this magnificent park, located on Uganda’s western border. The equatorial snow peaks include the third highest point in Africa, while the lower slopes are blanketed in moorland, bamboo and rich, moist montane forest.
