  • WHERE TO GO IN UGANDA

    undefined map
    Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
    This beautiful and evocatively named park is UNESCO World Heritage listed for its exceptional biodiversity. Its misty rainforest-clad mountains are home to roughly half the world’s endangered mountain gorillas with 9 habituated gorilla groups, each of up to 20 members. Treks here start at an altitude of around 1,500m and can be challenging as the gorilla groups can climb to over 3,000m over steep, densely forested terrain.
    Kibale National Park
    The rainforests of Kibale National Park are considered one of the best destinations in Africa for chimpanzee tracking. There are 60 mammal and 335 bird species, as well as a cornucopia of different plants and insects. Among the mammals there are an amazing 13 primate species including black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys and L’Hoest’s monkey, but chimpanzees are the star attraction.
    Jinja
    Situated in eastern Uganda beside the River Nile, Jinja is the region’s adventure capital. A series of rapids rushes north from the town through lush rainforest towards the Bujagali Falls, creating some of the world’s most exhilarating whitewater rafting. Gentler rafting options are also available allowing you to float down the river as you look out for birdlife, or simply relax and enjoy the view from a riverside lodge.
    Queen Elizabeth National Park
    Featuring vast savannah plains backed by volcanic mountains and interspersed with craters, lakes, wetlands and forests, this national park offers classic Rift Valley scenery. The park has healthy populations of hippos, elephants and lions as well as chimpanzees, buffaloes and crocodiles. Enjoy game viewing by boat on the Kazinga Channel, look out for tree-climbing lions in the Ishasha region or track chimps on foot at Kyambura Gorge.
    Entebbe
    Situated on the northern banks of the vast Lake Victoria, Africa’s biggest lake, the town of Entebbe makes for a relaxed introduction to Uganda. Visitors can enjoy a stroll along the shores of the lake or through the lush botanical gardens.
    Murchison Falls National Park
    Murchison Falls National Park
    Murchison Falls is the most impressive waterfall in East Africa and lies at the centre of the largest wildlife reserve in Uganda. Here the Victoria Nile descends dramatically through rocks towards Lake Albert. Despite heavy poaching in the 1980s, animal numbers have now recovered to provide some good savannah game viewing, with lion and elephant being the main attraction.
