Uganda: the Pearl of Africa

Situated on the Equator, on the shores of Lake Victoria lies Uganda; one of the most ecologically diverse and fertile countries in Africa. Here you can trek the mighty mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, enjoy a safari by road or boat on the Kazinga Channel, raft down Grade 5 white water rapids at Jinja, or follow chimpanzees on foot in Kibale Forest and marvel at the vast array of birdlife and unforgettable scenery of Uganda’s remote forests and parks.

Uganda is also home to the tallest mountain range in Africa (Rwenzori), one of the world’s most powerful waterfalls (Murchison) and amongst the most friendly and welcoming people you might ever encounter with over 30 different indigenous languages. Gorilla Trekking combines perfectly with a safari in Tanzania and Kenya.
