Uganda is popularly referred to as “the Pearl of Africa” because of the country’s unwavering natural beauty. Surprisingly, though, it is one of Africa’s less-traveled destinations, so it remains virtually untouched and pristine, offering authentic and breathtaking experiences. The landscape is stunning and diverse, with its savanna, rolling hills, crater lakes, and snowcapped peaks, while the wildlife is rich and abundant, famous for its magnificent gorillas.
In this trip, we offer you the rare opportunity to approach the Mountain Gorillas within close distance, without any net or barrier, observing them in their natural environment. You will also go on a game safari in the Murchison Falls National Park, where you will meet big cats (lions and leopards), other members of the big five game of Africa (buffalos, elephants and rhinos), endangered species like pangolins, jackals, foxes and wild dogs, as well as antelopes, bush backs and a variety of other animals.
The road trips included in the itinerary will help you discover the essence of the country – referred to by many as “the Switzerland of Africa” – uncovering new secrets in every turn and nook. Having enough memory in your camera to capture all these unique moments, and enough space in your luggage for the beautiful handicrafts produced by the local communities may end up being the only challenges you will face.
