Uganda Safari Inspiration

Uganda is for good reasons nicknamed “the Pearl of Africa”. Here you find scenic landscape, friendly people, interesting animals and unforgettable experiences. The highlight for most on a Uganda Safari is for sure Mountain Gorilla trekking but a safari in Uganda can be filled with many more unforgettable experiences. Game-drive for giraffes, lions and elephants in Murchison Falls NP, see hippos crocodiles and buffaloes along the banks from a boat-cruise on Kazinga channel and trek to see chimpanzees in the jungle. Learn about the interesting culture and relax!
Mountain gorilla trekking

Gorilla trekking

Trekking of mountain gorillas is an unforgettable experience and the dream that brings many to Uganda. The experience of gorilla trekking in Uganda starts with a briefing on how to act during the trek and you then walk into the forest with a specialised guide in a group of maximum 8 people. In the early morning before the trek a team of rangers is sent out to locate the gorilla group you are trekking and then lead your guide to the point where the gorillas are. You have an exciting trek through the jungle and when reaching the mountain gorillas you spend one unforgettable hour around them. The length of the trek to and from the gorillas depends on where the gorilla group is on that day.

The parks where our Uganda lodges are located

Queen Elizabeth National Park

Named after the Queen of the United Kingdom this park offers a variation of experiences. In the main part of the park the highlight is a boat-cruise on the Kazinga channel where you can see hippos, crocodiles and buffaloes enjoying the water as well as an abundance of birds.  In this area it is as well possible to go trekking chimps in Kyambura Gorge or in Kalinzu Forest a short drive from the park. As you explore this part of Queen Elizabeth NP it is perfect to stay at our cosy Pumba Safari Cottages by Kyambura, located on the escarpment with views of the park.

Ishasha, the southern sector of Queen Elizabeth NP, is known for its tree-climbing lions. Regularly climbing trees is a very rear behaviour for these big cats, it is only two known places in Africa where the lions have this habit. A game-drive in Ishasha is a very special experience as you drive on the tracks searching for lions in the fig-trees. In Ishasha you also have chance to see buffaloes, topis, elephants and birds. While discovering Ishasha you can spend the nights at Topi Lodge, conveniently located just a 5 min drive from the southern gate.

Murchison Falls National Park

In Murchison Falls National Park you are met by giraffes, elephants, buffaloes, Jackson’s Hartebeest and other interesting wildlife. The search for lions and leopard brings excitement to a game-drive. The park gets it name from the majestic Murchison Falls water fall where the Nile is pushed through a narrow gap. It is possible to go on a boat-cruise on the Nile where you see animals like crocodile, hippo and buffalo along the banks. Another highlight is a visit to the top of the falls, where you can either hike from the boat-cruise or travel by car. In the south of the park is Budongo forest where it is possible to go chimps trekking or birding for even more variation to your Murchison Falls NP safari. Our Hornbill Bush Lodge is located a 5 min drive from the Tangi Gate, with a comfortable bush lodge setting it is the perfect place to spend your nights as you discover Murchison Falls NP.
