We'll use it to show you a country where West African jungle meets East Africa savannah, with semi-desert in the Northeast, verdant lowlands on the shore of Lake Victoria, and the rainforest of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Southwest's Mountains of the Moon. Unsurprisingly it provides habitats for a vast smorgasbord of creatures with lions, leopards, buffalo and elephants roaming across the lower grasslands, while chimpanzees, and most famously, mountain gorillas live in the country's higher reaches. And if you're interested in bird watching, Uganda is an often under-rated paradise. Expects believe it's actually the continent's finest birding destination with around 1,000 species including the extremely rare shoe-billed stork.
Whatever the request to make your Abercrombie & Kent Ugandan safari and gorilla trekking holiday that extra bit special, we'll do our very best to help. Our acclaimed multi-centre East Africa team has spent over fifty years offering luxury travel across the region. A one stop shop with over 400 staff, many of them multi-lingual, it offers seamless trans-African itineraries and superb driver guides selected for their specialties from bird watching to families to first time safari-goers, along with 24-hour emergency contact and the best vehicle fleet around.
It's all waiting to be seen - you can even request the imported skills of Elvis - but at A&K we're confident we already have the perfect team to offer you the ultimate Ugandan safari in 2014.
