Wildlife and Safari Tours In Uganda

Known as the Pearl of Africa, Uganda offers savannah adventures unlike anywhere else in the world. Whether you’re looking for lazy lions, great apes, happy hippos or elusive leopards, Uganda Safari Tours should be on your bucket list. Here are our top 4 recommended Wildlife and Safari Packages.

1. Tree Climbing Lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park
It’s no secret lions are known for their deafening roar, artful hunting and sitting happily at the top of the food chain…. but lazing in trees? The Ugandan Lions do, and you will find them in Ishasha, the southern corner of Queen Elizabeth Park. Here you will experience remote wildlife game driving while enjoying the stunning views of the Rift Valley.

2. Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
In the south west of Uganda, an enormous rainforest is home to hundreds of gorillas. The lucky people who get to see them call it a once in a lifetime trip. As you trek deep into Bwindi with your expert guide, the vibrant green colours and intoxicating smell of the rainforest is impossible to ignore… and when you see the gorillas pop their heads out for the first time, a truly humbling experience begins. Pack a good camera, you’ll find yourself snap happy!

3. Nile River Cruising in Murchison Falls
Known as the ‘Home of the Hippos’, a Nile Cruise through Murchison Falls National Park is nothing short of breath taking. Along the river banks you will see hippos, crocodiles, elephants and buffalo. The sheer power of the Water Falls is as loud as it is captivating. Book yourself into a morning game drive for lion, leopard, giraffe, buffalo and other game spotting. Don’t forget to pack a picnic at The Delta where you can enjoy the views of Lake Victoria.

4. Chimpanzee Trekking in Kibale National Park
Kibale National Park is home to the most diverse range of primates in East Africa. You can choose from several trails that will lead you to over 1400 chimpanzees. Along the way, you may also see l’hoest’s monkeys, colobus monkeys, red tailed monkeys, blue monkeys, baboons and grey cheeked mangabeys. For those hikers among us that love a scenic view, you can take your monkey business up to the highest peak of the park at 1590m above sea level.
