Classic Uganda

One of our most sensational Uganda tours offers a suggested itinerary loaded with unforgettable wildlife encounters. You can tailor your Ugandan safari experience to include hikes through lush rainforest in search of chimpanzee, listening to the chatter of some 600 species of bird in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and getting up close and personal with hippo along the Kazinga Channel. But the biggest thrill of any Uganda tour must be to trek deep into the jungle and discover endangered mountain gorilla in their natural habitat. It may well be the biggest thrill of your life, not just your tour of Uganda.

UK - Entebbe

Your journey through Uganda begins with an overnight flight to the capital, Entebbe, via Nairobi.

Entebbe – Kibale Forest

We’ll meet you and take you to Primate Lodge, where you can relax in the African rainforest before the next stage of your adventure begins. There’s plenty to look forward to. Once described by Winston Churchill as the Pearl of Africa, Uganda is where the jungles of West Africa meet the savannahs of East Africa, leading to an astonishing diversity of landscape and wildlife. 

Kibale Forest

Driving west to Kyaninga Lodge you’ll be immersed in the lush scenery of rural Uganda. Keep your camera handy as you pass Kyaninga Lake, where you’ll see traditional stilted cottages lining the shore and enjoy stunning views of the Mountains of the Moon, a source of the River Nile.

Kibale Forest

Kibale Forest National Park provides a rich habitat for some 12 species of primate, including chimpanzee and red colobus monkey. There are also more than 300 species of bird here too nesting in the dense canopy. Over the next few days you’ll enjoy a series of guided walks through the lush rainforest to see and learn to identify the screeches and squawks that surround you. .

Kibale - Queen Elizabeth National Park

Journeying on to Queen Elizabeth National Park, you’ll arrive at one of the finest birding destinations on Earth. It’s thought that over 600 species make their home in the park, so the dawn chorus is naturally unforgettable. You’ll stay at the Kyambura Gorge Safari Lodge, situated on the edge of the Kyambura Gorge and Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Queen Elizabeth National Park

While birding is of course the main attraction in Queen Elizabeth, this dramatic wilderness offers a range of diverse activities. We recommend a boat trip up the Kazinga Channel to see hippo, or guided treks among the fig trees in search of the famous tree-climbing lion. Another ever-popular tour here is the winding Crater Drive along the valley floor. 

Queen Elizabeth National Park – Ishasha

Today head south of the park, the scenery changes and here you have the opportunity to try and find the famous tree climbing lions – who enjoy climbing the fig trees. Your camp for the night is Ishasha Wilderness.

Queen Elizabeth National Park - Bwindi

Spectacular Bwindi National Park is next on your Uganda tour, home to over half of the world's remaining mountain gorilla. Tracking these rare and magnificent creatures and experiencing them in their natural habitat, is rightly considered one of the ultimate travel experiences. The luxurious Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is the perfect place to begin a gorilla-watching trek. You’ll stay at this mountainside tented camp for the next three days.

Gorilla trekking

Expert guides lead you deep into the jungle to encounter these immensely powerful, yet charmingly playful, animals on their own turf. It’s a privilege very few people have the opportunity to enjoy. Mandatory permits allow you to spend only an hour at a time with a habituated group, but it’s sure to be one of the most intense hours of your life. Two treks enable you to maximise the experience with these magnificent beasts.

Entebbe - UK

Today you’ll transfer to Entebbe International Airport to connect with your flight back to the UK.
