Uganda, East Africa
 
Three hundred reasons for visiting Uganda are the number of endangered mountain gorillas living in the mists of the rainforest clad volcanoes of Bwindi and Mgahinga. A thousand more reasons are the number of bird species in Uganda twice as many as in most other African safari countries. And then there’s the scenery...the towering “Mountains of the Moon”, lakes Edward, Albert and Victoria lying in the Great Rift Valley, and the Blue Nile which cascades over Murchison Falls.
It may be the colonial sounding names, and images of Dian Fossey encountering those magnificent gorillas in the mist which gives Uganda its air of romance and mystery. And it is a mystery why a place with such unique scenery and wildlife and such welcoming people sees so few visitors. So, this is a country where you can still enjoy a sense of pioneering and discovery of hidden wonders.

If you want to see the gorillas, we'll fly you down to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for a two or three day gorilla safari. If you want to see more of this beautiful country, Africa Exclusive will arrange for you to have a private vehicle and a very experienced guide who will take you from one magnificent location to another and on your safaris. Your safari will be between a week and 10 days focussing upon the western part of Uganda.

The next week brings one scenic wonder after another as you head through Queen Elizabeth National Park with its lions, antelope, giraffe and elephant, roaming rich forest, open plains and tiny lakes set in volcanic craters. On past shimmering rift valley lakes linked by the Nile, surrounded by forested slopes where you can seek out the chimpanzees of Ndali. Those who love birds will be enthralled by shoebill storks, immense flocks of water birds, great raptors and a thousand species of birds which make this the best in Africa for birding. Your guide’s piercing eyesight and encyclopaedic knowledge becomes apparent as he names each one and patiently leads you to the best viewing points.

Your safari might end at Murchison Falls where you take a boat ride on the Nile towards the base of the falls watching the Nile cascade into a chasm with a roar and cloud of spray.

Uganda
CALENDAR: JANUARY TO MARCH
 
In the first three months of the year, visit Uganda to see the endangered mountain gorilla who live amongst the rainforest-clad volcanoes. Your trek is rewarded with time spent with the habituated gorilla families. Travelling overland across Uganda you’ll see thriving small town and village life and feel the warmth of Ugandan hospitality. End up with the chimpanzee in Kibale for the perfect primate-focused trip.
CALENDAR: APRIL AND MAY
 
April and May tend to be wet, but this is no bad thing: the gorilla descend to the lower slopes of the mountains so you don’t have as far to hike to see them. Consider also spending a day with a chimpanzee researcher getting to know a family of chimps. These gorgeous creatures are wonderfully energetic, expressive and completely unbothered by the proximity of those who come to watch them.
CALENDAR: JUNE TO OCTOBER
 
Visit Uganda now if you want a taste of everything the country has to offer. It’s an excellent season for gorilla tracking and a big game safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park. The Great Rift Valley is dramatic, and it’s well worth visiting Murchison Falls. Not only is the crashing of the waters spectacular, but you’ll also see the mysterious Mountains of the Moon in the distance.
CALENDAR: NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER
 
Possibly the most beautiful time of year to visit Uganda. Early thundershowers have moistened the landscape and vegetation is lush. Jade green hills give way to islands dotted through wide, full rivers, and the herbivores - in particular the giraffe - can feast upon the vegetation to their hearts’ content. We highly recommend Uganda in these months as a birding destination with 1,000 species, native and migratory, to see.
