Uganda Safaris & Vacations

Discover Uganda, famed for its gorilla trekking, tree-climbing lions and the mouth of the River Nile. Uganda is also home to the the Bwindi National Forest, where you can get close to the almighty gorillas and trek through the steep mountain rainforest, home to over 300 endangered gorillas.

The famous River Nile starts in Uganda, so why not take a river tour or better still - try white-water rafting if you’re brave enough. Visit the Murchison Falls, known as one of the most spectacular sights along the River Nile, to witness a cascading 45-meter waterfall like no other.

Meet the Ziwa Rhinos at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where you can learn about the protected animals before being given a tour of the sanctuary, or head off in search of tree-climbing lions at the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Here you can enjoy a jeep safari through the diverse, African surroundings.
