UGANDA NATIONAL PARKS SAFARIS
Uganda as a country is one of the most thought for destination when it comes to African safaris. This is due to its natural endowment witTH natural beauty, characterized by good natural physical features, amazing African landscapes and scenic views.
Uganda is also known both as a world of birds and world of wildlife.
Uganda lies a stride the equator between Kenya to the east and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the west. It covers an area of 236,000m2 with 25% of its surface made up of large lakes including lakes Victoria, Albert, Edward and George.
With our safaris you can expect to see Africa’s Big Five and other land animals, gorillas, chimpanzees and other primates, waterfalls, forests, islands, and plenty of bird life.
The north of Uganda is semi arid except where the Albert Nile runs through it. The rest of the country is extremely fertile with a remarkable diversity of vegetation like lowland, mountain forests, wetlands, savannah and mountains.
Despite the fact that the human population is quiet dense in some areas, it remains one of the richest countries in east Africa biologically. Uganda is not very large but extremely diverse with over 1,000 species of birds and 15 species of diurnal primates including the gorilla and chimpanzees. This enormous diversity depends partly on its geographical position at the transition between east and central Africa. It has also got a temperate climate with an annual rainfall of 1,000-1,500mm and temperatures not exceeding between 28-30cc
Uganda offers excellent Africa vacation tours to its national parks and game reserves where you may have the opportunity to see a diversity of wildlife through game drives and walking or chimpanzee trekking safaris.
Unlike Tanzania and Kenya safaris, Uganda includes gorilla safaris to Bwindi national parks where the Virungas extend to Rwanda and Congo. Hiking expeditions offer additional adventure in Rwenzori National Park similar to those of Mount Kenya.
The tourism and hospitality sector provides a variety of safari accommodation options including camping, safari lodges, hotels, resorts and guest houses. These may be luxury or discounted/cheap depending on what you want for your Uganda accommodation.
