A verdant and beautiful, Uganda is hidden away in Africa’s mountainous central highlands. Diverse landscapes support a wide biodiversity of wildlife, from great apes to classic safari animals. Trek through the misty volcanic slopes of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in search of endangered mountain gorillas. Play with baby chimpanzees at the Jane Goodall Sanctuary as they tug at your shoelaces, climb all over you and give you little kisses.

Venture into the lush forest and fertile grasslands of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Spend the afternoon with lions and elephants on a game drive or sip on a local beer as giraffes wander past your tent. Delve into the lowland swamps in search the rare shoebill stork, known for its towering stature and distinctive appearance. Feel the full power of the mighty Nile River as it squeezes through a narrow ravine at Murchison Falls.
