Uganda Wildlife holidays

Tailor-made wildlife holidays or escorted tours in Uganda, for encounters with gorillas, chimps and prolific birdlife, plus stunning scenery.

Wildlife holidays in Uganda

Seeing a rare mountain gorilla, a chimpanzee or golden monkey is a breathtaking wildlife experience. A tailor-made holiday or escorted tour in Uganda will include this, plus cruises on the Nile, incredible birdwatching, beautiful volcanic and lake scenery, and savannah wildlife including big cats too.

Seeing the gorillas in the wild was hard trekking but what a wonderful experience having a family of gorillas feeding all around. Also the chimpanzees, tree-climbing lions, hyenas feeding and a masterclass in how to sleep by a leopard.

Things to do in Uganda

Most travellers rightly visit Uganda for excellent wildlife and birdwatching holidays, but there is such variety in this large country and we’d love to share some of our favourite things to do here.

When to go to Uganda

It’s best to visit Uganda outside of the times of the main rains as these make travel and experiences uncomfortable. So try January to February and June to September. Birders, however, might prefer to visit Uganda from about November to March.
