Let's Plan Your Travel to Uganda

Uganda is located in the heart of East Africa and offers an exceptionally diverse trip. For those looking for adventure, unique wildlife opportunities and kind-hearted local people, this is the country for you.

The most visited national park in Uganda is Bwindi. Located in the west of the country, Bwindi is a dense forest home to almost half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas. Trekking with the habituated gorillas is a bucket list experience like no other. In their presence, you feel both extremely vulnerable and humbled at the same time.

Continuing with the primate experiences in Uganda, Kibale Forest is a fantastic destination for those who want to see the chimpanzees. Whether they are playing on the forest floor, or swinging from the treetops, the habituated chimpanzee experience is memorable in all the best ways.

Other parks to combine in Uganda include Queen Elizabeth National Park which is famous for its tree-climbing lions in the Ishasha sector, and Murchison Falls National Park which is known for its exceptionally powerful waterfall. In the north-eastern tip of the country is an isolated national park called Kidepo. Bordering South Sudan, this park is a semi arid region with high temperatures and dry savannahs.

Uganda is a great destination for adventure-seekers. Jinja, located in the central-eastern part of the country, is known as the adrenaline capital of East Africa. Here you can enjoy white water rafting, kayaking, mountain biking and many more. Uganda is a country like no other. We simply cannot recommend it enough.

Where to visit in Uganda

Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Uganda.

  • Bwindi National Park

    Bwindi National Park

    Bwindi is one of Uganda’s most visited park, and rightly so. Located in the southern-western part of the country, on the edge of the African Rift Valley, Bwindi is known for its exceptional biodiversity and its home to approximately 400 mountain gorillas. Bwindi was gazetted as a national park in 1991, and a world UNESCO heritage site in 1994. Thousands of tourists visit Bwindi each year to see the habituated mountain gorillas. These gorillas live in families and share very similar social behavior patterns to humans. The one main difference is their weight – a large silverback can weigh up to 150 kilograms!

  • Kibale Forest

    Kibale Forest

    Located in western Uganda, Kibale is a park famous for its chimpanzee trekking. Kibale Forest has the highest number and diversity of primates in East Africa – including chimpanzees, black and white colobus monkeys, olive baboons, grey cheeked mangabeys and many more. The dense, moist forest is the perfect home for primates and can be accessed at all times of the year. Along with chimpanzee trekking and habituation experiences, there is lots to do in this area, including cultural tours, crater lake tours and then heading on for a safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park.

  • Queen Elizabeth National Park

    Queen Elizabeth National Park

    Situated in the west of the country is a one of Uganda’s treasures – Queen Elizabeth National Park. The park was named after the Queen of England during her visit to Uganda in 1954. With such diversity in landscape, the park offers a varied safari experience. In the southern part of the park in the Ishasha sector are the tree-climbing lions. These have become famous to see during a Uganda itinerary. The Kazinga Channel is also a prominent feature of the park. Home to a large number of hippos, Nile crocodiles, elephants, and an diversity of fish and bird species, a boat safari here is a must-do.

  • Murchison Falls

    Murchison Falls

    Murchison Falls is one of the oldest national parks in Uganda (gazetted in 1927) and is famously known for having an extremely powerful waterfall. Visiting the falls to see the impressive volume of water blasting through the gorge is high on the list. Game drives are closely followed, where you can see buffalo, lion, elephant, hartebeests and more. Accommodation in Murchison Falls is typically located around the Victoria Nile which offers secluded views and undisturbed “armchair safaris”. Murchison Falls is a great option for those who have an extended period of time in Uganda and can compliment a Uganda itinerary nicely.

  • Kidepo National Park

    Kidepo National Park

    Kidepo is located in the very north-eastern tip of Uganda, bordering South Sudan. Because of its location, the landscape is very different compared to other areas of the country, offering dry and vast savannahs next to mountainous bodies. Because of its isolated location, few tourists visit Kidepo National Park and as a result, it has become a hidden gem off the beaten track. The safari experience here is exceptional, with over 75 species of mammal and 420 species of bird. As well as game drives, activities in Kidepo include cultural visits to see the Karamojong people. This is an indigenous community with strong traditions that are interesting to see.

  • Kampala

    Kampala

    Kampala is the capital city of Uganda offering bustling and energetic streets and local people. It is situated in the southern part of Uganda, homing the western shores of Lake Victoria. There are a number of things to do in Kampala and nearby areas, such as visiting architectural sites such as mosques and churches, the Kasubi Royal Tombs and the Uganda Museum. Whether a trip starts here in Kampala, or the nearby city of Entebbe, it is a great introduction to Uganda.
