Dreaming of sprawling Savannah? Thinking about trekking for chimpanzees or mountain gorillas? Want to see lions, leopards, and hyenas in their natural habitat?
In Uganda, all of these scenarios are realities. The Pearl of Africa, as it was historically nicknamed by the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill, is home to 10 national parks and a host of other wildlife reserves. It is also one of the most bio-diverse countries on the African continent.
In Uganda, visitors can experience mountain gorilla treks and chimpanzees, take game drives to explore the rich Savannah grasslands teeming with African wildlife, see a multitude of different bird species, and explore the country’s lakes, mountains, tropical forests, and wetlands.
For a classic Savannah safari, consider visiting Kidepo Valley National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, or Murchison Falls National Park. Kidepo Valley is home to one of the largest populations of buffalo in Africa, complete with classic predators such as lions and leopards.
Queen Elizabeth National Park features river cruises, game drives to see traditional African wildlife, and even chimpanzee trekking. Murchison Falls National Park is home to lion, leopards, huge herds of elephants, and giraffes, and even includes a cruise down the world-famous Nile River.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is famous for its shy, gentle, and endangered mountain gorillas. Well protected by the Uganda Wildlife Authority, you can get up close to these amazing creatures on foot as you step inside the tropical forest that is Bwindi. You can also see other primates such as black and white colobus monkeys, vervets, and others.
These are just several in a long list of parks and reserves that are dedicated to preserving Uganda’s biodiversity. So, dream no longer.
