Uganda Safaris

Uganda is a stunning country, an ideal destination for a tailor made safari holiday, honeymoon or adventure trip. As a holiday destination, Uganda, known as the Pearl of Africa, is perhaps East Africa's best kept secret. It is quite unlike any other African country, with spectacular mountain scenery along with rainforests, rivers and lakes and areas of open plains, which provide homes for an extraordinary diversity of life. Uganda holidays are diverse and awe-inspiring.

One of the highlights has to be trekking to see primates in their natural habitat. Mountain gorillas can be seen at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, or in the Parc National des Volcans in neighbouring Rwanda which is easily accessible from Uganda.

You can see chimpanzees, go birdwatching for the 27 Rift Valley endemics or the rare shoebill stork, see elephants, lions and hippos and other great African wildlife in a range of wildlife areas such as the Kibale forest and the Queen Elizabeth (Ruwenzori) National Park.

The local communities also really make a trip here very special, sharing their cultural traditions and welcoming us to their country.

Amanda, Tribes managing director, is a goodwill tourism ambassador for Uganda due to her fondness for the country, so Tribes is well-placed to give you sound, enthusiastic advice about a holiday in this great place.  Give us a call!
