Landlocked Uganda is one of the most bio-diverse countries on earth. It also boasts Africa’s highest mountain range, its largest lake and the source of its longest river, The Nile.

The country’s landscapes include dense equatorial forest, snow-capped mountains and dry flat savannah. Lion’s prowl the Savannah amid the antelope, elephant and buffalo, whilst hippos cool off in the lake. The country also boasts some of the richest birdlife in Africa.

The Kibale National Park, cloaked in lush equatorial forest, is home to Africa’s largest primate population. Here tourists can join researchers in following troupes of gentle Bwindi Gorillas through their natural habitat, watching them in their daily interactions. Chimpanzee Treks can also be arranged.


For a real adrenaline rush whitewater raft down the Nile River rapids near Jinja. Take a motorbike tour through Kampala with the motorbike driver as your guide, and just enjoy this land of exaggerated spectacles.
