Uganda Safaris - Planning a holiday in Uganda? Uganda is one of the best destinations to visit in Africa. It favors both budget and luxury safari clients.

Blessed with a tapestry of landscapes, stunning wildlife watching experiences and a bunch of welcoming locals, Uganda has so much to offer tourists. Down south lies the source of the longest river in the world (River Nile) and the continent's largest lake. North west lies Murchison Falls National Park, a Uganda safari park that boasts with the world's most explosive waterfalls as its centerpiece. Gorilla tourism is apparently the biggest star in the Uganda tourism industry. Uganda is among the only 3 countries with the endangered mountain gorillas. These gentle primates live in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.

Why go on Uganda tours?
Uganda is a great spot for wildlife viewing, gorilla trekking, excursions, mountaineering, birding and honeymoon experiences. Your biggest surprise will be meeting the gorillas. It is a lifetime experience but quite challenging. You will trek through muddy paths and get lost in the jungle as you search for these primates in their natural habitat. The one hour you are given is a truly magical moment. Mountain Gorillas share over 98% of human DNA and do not differ much from humans in terms of character, traits and more. Some are humble, some are ambitious and hungry for power, some feel powerful by snatching females from other groups where as some prefer to stay out of trouble always. When planning your Uganda safaris, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls National Park are destinations that should not miss in your package. Visit at least one or all of these places for an awesome experience.
What to see in Uganda
Chimpanzees and Mountain Gorillas are big highlights in Uganda. Uganda shelters various West African mammal species and East African safari animals. As for primates, red-tailed monkeys, Patas monkey, De Brazza’s monkey, grey-cheeked mangabeys and l’Hoest’s monkeys are just some of the primates found in Uganda. These primate are distributed across various regions with most of them living in Kibale Forest National Park. The black-and-white colobus is of the most common primates that are widespread across so many regions in the country. Uganda is also home to a couple of antelope species. The special Uganda Kob, a national antelope, is restricted to a certain places. The much rare sitatunga antelope spans across six of the country’s national parks but is rarely seen. Oribi’s are a much common sight in Murchison Falls National Park.
When to visit
The best time to visit Uganda is December to February and June to September. Those are the two dry seasons of the year. Animals can easily be seen in huge numbers during such months and mostly at the water-banks where they hydrate from. This is not the case with wet months where animals tend to take shelter from the rain and can easily access water from their respective habitats. Roads are also quite muddy during wet months and cars often get stuck, which might cause delays in service.
Travelling during wet months is also okay and if lucky, you can finish your trip without seeing a single drop of rainfall. Even if it rains, your day is not fully messed. The sun can come out, dry the soil and your day gets back to normal.
