Uganda Safari

A packed group tour to see Uganda's main attractions.

8 days from £4200pp plus international flights.

Gorillas, chimps and game on a group lodge-based safari in Uganda.

  • Uganda's gorillas, chimps and game in a week
  • Incredible chance to meet mountain gorillas
  • Exciting chimpanzee trek
  • Small group lodge-based trip.
  • Game drives in Queen Elizabeth NP.
  • Boat trip on the Kazinga Channel
  • 2 domestic flights to reduce travel times

This exciting 8-day Uganda safari is really all about the wildlife of Uganda in terms of the savanna wildlife of Queen Elizabeth National Park, plus the mountain gorillas of Bwindi (or Rwanda).

It is a group tour with set departures. You have a driver/guide with you throughout the trip, and your accommodation is good quality lodges or tented camps.

Since the gorillas are such an important part of this safari there is a chance to take two gorilla treks to double the time you spend with these wonderful creatures. This holiday also includes the opportunity to go chimp trekking at Chamburu Gorge near Queen Elizabeth NP, a great experience, not to be missed.

A safari in Uganda is probably one of the most diverse you can find in terms of species, given the huge numbers of bird species found here, plus the savanna wildlife such as antelopes, elephants, zebras, lions and so on, and of course the primates - gorillas, chimps, red colobus, black and white colobus, red monkey ...

This safari is also very diverse in terms of the activities you can take part in. Walks, treks, boat trips and game drives.

Please note that this may run in reverse, so please ask us about this before booking if this is important to you. Also, occasionally we visit the gorillas just over the border in Rwanda instead of in Bwindi if there are any problems with permits.
