Explore Uganda And Discover An Extraordinary Diversity of Sights And Wildlife
One of Africa's smallest countries, Uganda is home to some of its biggest stars, including mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and the thunderous River Nile. With landscapes of the utmost beauty, including rich rainforests, breathtaking gorges and striking savannahs, Uganda will leave an everlasting impression.
Bwindi National Park has 350 mountain gorillas living among its dense forest. Trek through the thick, green undergrowth to witness these endangered creatures in their natural habitat; the sight of a shy, seven foot silverback and his children playing in the branches above has to be one of Africa's greatest experiences.
There are even more monkeys swinging from the branches in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, hence its nickname the 'Valley of the Apes', while the canopy of the Kyambura Gorge is rich with wildlife, birds and primates. Trek beneath the branches in search of its chimps and you may be lucky enough to spot a tree-climbing lion too.
The bigger mammals are easier to find in Uganda's largest national park, Murchison Falls. Manicured by the roll of the River Nile, its waterfalls are the centrepiece of the cutting Rift Valley rocks and lush, dark green landscape.
Roaming the park are four of the 'Big Five', buffalo, leopards, elephants and lions, while crocodiles and the rare, shoebill stork can be seen in the Nile. For even the most eager of explorers, Uganda has plenty of treasures to uncover, so it's no small wonder Winston Churchill declared it the 'pearl of Africa.’
