For a small, landlocked country, Uganda certainly packs in the places of interest. Mountainous, forested Bwindi National Park is where to go in Uganda for Gorilla Safari, but the country is also home to large savannah reserves, lowland rainforests and enchanting lakes which - in combination - make for one of the biggest wildlife experiences in Africa.

Boasting a 90% success rate at finding habituated gorilla family groups in the extraordinary Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Gorilla Safari in Uganda has become one of Africa's most powerful wildlife experiences and such is its success that the gorilla population is actually increasing.
But don't think that Uganda safaris are only about gorillas in rainforests: this landlocked African country is home to a range of diverse National Parks and is a strong contender for one of the world's best bird watching destinations. Head for Murchison Falls or Queen Elizabeth National Park for classic big game viewing, chimpanzee trekking and river cruises. More information about individual national Parks can be found below

Kidepo Valley National Park
The Kidepo Valley National Park is one of Uganda's most spectacular parks. It is 1,442 square kilometres and harbours scenery unsurpassed in any other park in East Africa.

Tucked into the corner of Uganda's border with Sudan and Kenya, the park offers breathtaking Savannah landscapes, which end in rugged horizon. A huge latitudinal range and correspondingly wide climatic conditions have evolved an extremely diverse flora. As a result the variety of animal species in the park is equally abundant including many which are found no where else in Uganda. ...
