Uganda Gorilla Safari tour
Gorilla tracking ranks among one of the absolute highlights of a trip to Africa for most travelers, and the spine-tingling feeling that you get being so near to one of our closest relatives is hard to describe.
Mountain Gorillas are one of the world’s most endangered apes. It is estimated that there are only about 880 left throughout the world. Almost half of them can be found in, and populations can also be found in neighboring Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
What to see in Murchison Falls National Park Uganda Safari Tour:
Covering an area of over 3,840 km², Murchison Falls National Park is the largest conservation area in Uganda. The park’s name derives from its famous waterfall: the mighty Murchison Falls, which are formed where the Victoria Nile powerfully forces its way through a narrow cleft before plunging 43m down with a thunderous roar.
The Murchison Falls!
The mighty Nile River divides the park into its north and south sections. At the spectacular Murchison Falls the world’s longest river explodes violently through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 43m below. As the river attracts large numbers of game, a boat safari up the Nile provides the perfect opportunity to see and photograph the animals.
Carefully watched by crocodiles, hundreds of hippos, buffaloes, water birds, apes and all the other thirsty wildlife that the Nile attracts, you go to the bottom of the Murchison Falls, which approaches you with a thunderous sound. By car or after a short hike you can reach the “Top of the falls” from where you have a perfect view of the impressive falls and the river snaking below.
Murchison Falls Wildlife Safari tour
Most of the park’s wildlife is found north of the Nile, so all game drives take place on the tracks in the northern section. A game drive in the park allows you to be eye-to-eye with the African animal kingdom featuring elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, lions, leopards, different species of antelope and many bird species.
The Nile Delta is the area where the Victoria Nile flows into Lake Albert. A boat safari down the river towards Lake Albert is a “must do” for every birdwatcher as the banks of the delta are home to hundreds of bird species including the rare and prehistoric-looking shoebill stork.
Budongo Forest Uganda Tour
Budongo Forest is located in the south of Murchison Falls National Park and it is known for its impressive biodiversity: more than 20 mammal species, 350 bird species, 250 butterfly species and over 450 plant species have been recorded!
During a hike in the forest, you will most probably see red-tailed, blue, and black-and-white colobus monkeys as well as hundreds of tropical birds and butterflies. Birdwatchers should follow the “Royal Mile”, a beautiful track through the forest and one of the best locations for birding in East Africa. As Budongo has a population of chimpanzees, it is also possible to do chimp tracking here.
Kibale National Park, Chimpanzee tracking tour
Chimpanzees share 98% of human genes making them our closest living relatives. They are found in 21 countries throughout Africa, but are most easily sighted in Uganda due to their dense populations. Kibale Forest is especially good for tracking trips, but chimps can also be seen in the Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park and in Budongo Forest in Murchison Falls National Park.
Kibale Forest National Park chimpanzee Tracking.
Kibale Chimpanzee tracking experiences are excellent thanks to several well maintained walking trails and a large number of resident chimp families in the forest.

In addition, you may see olive baboons, bush babies and nocturnal
Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda Wildlife Safari;

Kidepo Valley National Park Uganda Wildlife Safari

The Kidepo Valley National Park spans 1,442 km2 and ranges from 900 to 2.750 m in altitude. Because of its remote location on the border with South Sudan, Kidepo Valley National Park is possibly the only national park left on the whole continent where you can almost have the park to yourself (average of six visitors per day).

Lake Mburo is also the only park in Uganda where you can find zebras.
Lake Mburo National Park Walking Tours.
Lake Mburo National Park is one of two parks in Uganda where it is permitted to go for a bushwalk safari tour with an experienced ranger. And this opportunity should not be missed.

Sipi Falls Walking Safari Tours.
A network of well-maintained (though often muddy) local trails give you beautiful views of the area and on your way to the bottom of each of the three levels of Sipi waterfalls.

Village and forest walks are also possible at Mt Elgon National Park’s Forest Exploration Centre nearby, though you will incur the national park fees to hike there. click here for our tours with Sipi Falls.
Sipi Falls Coffee Tours
Aside from the falls themselves, a highlight to visiting Sipi is a tour that takes you through the entire coffee process at a nearby family farm. You will pick the coffee berries, to deshell and grind them with a traditional mortar and pestle, and roast them on an open fire, before – the best part – finishing with a fine cup of strong Arabica coffee.
Lake Bunyonyi Uganda Safari tour:

Batwa Tour -(Pygmy) hideout at Garama Cave
A new tourism trail, result of a collaboration between the Uganda Wildlife Authority and the United Organisation for Batwa Development in Uganda, is helping the indigenous Batwa pygmy people to keep their culture alive, following their eviction from the forests of southwest Uganda more than two decades ago.
The Batwa are Uganda’s traditionally forest-dwelling pygmy people. About a century ago, there was a conflict between the Batwa and the Bantu speaking people in the region. The Bantu tried to expel the Batwa people from the area, so they hideout in Garama Cave. The Bantu had no idea there was a hidden cave in the forest and therefore could not find the crafty Batwa.
Your guide will explain how the Batwa lived and fought out of this cave. The cave is 342 meters in length and 14 meters deep, and is now only inhabited by bats. The walk to and from the cave passes through mountain woodland with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the scenery or watch birds.

With the arrival of British colonial rule in 1906, the town began to grow as a trading centre and important river crossing.
By mid-century, the town had grown significantly with Indians, Africans, and Europeans living in somewhat segregated neighborhoods on the west side of the river. With the arrival of hydroelectricity (from Owen Falls dam) and the railroad, Jinja was ideally situated to become the industrial capital of the country with sugar and cotton processing making up a large part of employment.
During the difficult political crises of the 1970s, Jinja’s trading and manufacturing economies suffered.

Karamoja Safari Tour
Set on a large plateau between the mountains of Sudan and the Eastern Rift escarpment of Kenya, Karamoja Safari Tour has been the home of a proudly unique people still surviving as pastoralists. The climate is dry and windswept, but reveals beautiful panoramas, sunsets over the mountain peaks and amazingly starry nights.
Karamoja Culture Activities
The colorful blankets, piercings and beads they wear, as well as the language and other cultural traits of the Karamajong set them apart from other tribes in Uganda. These differences and the cattle raiding that is practiced across the border in Kenya has been a source of tension in the region.
