tailor made gorilla safaris in UGANDA

Tailor Made Safaris In Uganda – Emphatically fecund, this petite nation punches well above its weight in terms of nature. Its lush forests reverberate with their life, their dense canopies shielding the playground of hundreds of bird and mammal species, including half the planet’s mountain gorillas. Its savannahs nestled in some of Africa’s most stunning settings, nature classic safari wildlife, and the Rwenzoris, Africa’s highest mountain range, are clad in endemic plant species and topped with equatorial glaciers. Yet although Ugandans have received many body blows, particularly during Idi Amin’s rule, remarkably, they’ve retained their warmth of spirit. Open, eloquent and always polite, Ugandans continue to debate their future. Will nationalism ever take hold? Or will politics and life continue to be split along tribal lines?

Top things to do in Uganda

  • Do the unthinkable – penetrate Bwindi’s impenetrable forest and come face to face with mountain gorillas.
  • Endure the cold and wet to reach mystical highs in the glaciated ‘Mountains of the Moon’ (Rwenzoris).
  • Listen to the chorus of the chimp calls while following their actual footsteps in Kibale Forest National Park.
  • Stir the Nile with your paddle before it shakes you (and your raft) to the core.

Discover Uganda

  • Read Waiting by Goretti Kyomuhendo, one of Uganda’s pioneering female writers – it tells of the rituals of rural life as well as the omnipresent fear during the fall of Idi Amin.
  • Listen to the rumba sounds of Afrigo Band, one of Uganda’s longest-running groups.
  • Watch The Last King of Scotland, Kevin Macdonald’s adaptation of Giles Foden’s eponymous novel about the emotional whirlwind surrounding Idi Amin’s physician.
  • Eat matoke (cooked plantains) and groundnut sauce.
  • Drink Bell Beer, infamous for its ‘Great night, good morning!’ ad jingle – hangover-free it’s not, but it’s tame in comparison to waragi (millet-based alcohol).
