Uganda Adventure Travel Safaris and Gorilla Viewing
Uganda is an amazing country and is often called the `African Pearl`. It is a place where you can discover and explore. It is ideal for adventure travellers, nature and animal lovers. The countryside and rain forest is beautiful and exotic and it is here where you can see wildlife and gorillas up close. The roads are rough but that all adds to the adventure!
tourism in Uganda and protecting the wildlife
Many travellers visit Africa to see wildlife and game up close. In my opinion, there are not many things in life that can compare to an African safari. Adventure Natural African Safaris in Uganda have taken Safaris to the next level. Not only do they offer tours but they are working hand-in-hand with both the Uganda Wildlife Authority and Uganda Tourism, to promote tourism and also to help protecting the animals. It is of utmost importance to keep the animals stress- free in order for them to thrive and flourish in their natural habitat.
Accommodation is carefully selected and a wide range of accommodation is available including: luxury lodges, guest houses, tented safari camps, beach resorts and bandas.
What can be seen on a classic safari?
A typical Safari tour starts in Kampala but your flight will arrive at Entebbe International Airport. Organized tours vary between 3 and 20 days but can be customized according to your needs. Safaris take your through beautiful parts of Uganda like the Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth- and Lake Mburo National Parks. Ferry across the Nile River to view lions, elephants, leopards, hippopotamus, buffaloes, giraffes and antelopes from across the Northern bank. Bird watchers will love the variety of birds that can be seen here including: King Fisher, African Fish Eagle and many more. Don`t forget to take a photo at the Equator!
Experienced and well trained local guides are ready to answer all your questions. They know exactly where to find the animals and your safety is of utmost importance.
Up close with the Gorillas of Uganda
There is no better place to view the gorillas than in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Trekking will commence after a briefing from the National Park authorities. The hike is tough and you will be trekking through parts of the rain forest, undergrowth and thick creepers in pursuit of these extraordinary animals.
I get goose-bumps when I think about sitting close to these gentle giants, listening to the noises and sounds that they make and observing them in their natural habitat. It is extremely sad to know that only 650 of these Silverback giants are left.
Chimpanzee watching in the Kibale Forest National Park
It is a known fact that Chimpanzees are closely related to humans. They are very inquisitive creatures and it is a lot of fun to watch them play in the trees. The National park is home to more than 250 different bird species, 110 species of forest trees and 15 species of primates. It is an incredible experience to the visit the Kibale National Forest Park.
