Top 17 Inspiring Uganda Destinations
Top 17 Inspiring Uganda Destinations – Although landlocked, the variety of natural diversity that Uganda offers is astonishing when compared to its neighboring, the savannah countries of East Africa; not only does one have access to the majority of the savannah game that you would see in the classical wildlife destination in Kenya’s Masai Mara or in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.
While in Uganda, you also have over eight hundred species of birds, some national parks where you can track the mountain gorillas, a variety of habitats where you can also track chimpanzees or alternatively, take a couple of primate walks and a wide variety of forests, crater lakes, and mountains.
Uganda gives you the best combination to some of the best parts of African wildlife safaris, and in our opinion, Uganda still deserves the best wildlife planning for the best holiday experiences in the future.
Stunning accommodation: The accommodation in Uganda ranges in quality, but we never make compromises on location. See some of the most incredible vistas in the whole of Africa from your private views in the wilderness.
Amazing combos: Uganda’s location makes it perfect for combining with lots of other African destinations, including DR Congo Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania. You can add some coastal or inland beaches too!
The home for mountain gorilla tracking: Track the mountain gorillas in two national parks, combine that with some classical savannah game viewing, all in one country!
Among the so many reasons, game viewing is the most popular tourist activity in Uganda. Wild animals like lions, buffaloes, giraffes, antelopes, elephants are common in Uganda’s national parks. Uganda is one of only few countries in the world where it is possible to visit endangered gorillas.
Mountain Gorillas are Uganda’s prime tourist attraction. The vast majority of these are in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, with a few others in Mgahinga National Park, both in southwestern Uganda and near both Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo.
In Bwindi, visitors have been allowed to view the mountain gorillas since April 1993. The development of gorilla tourism and the habituation of gorillas to humans is proceeding very carefully because of the dangers to gorillas, such as contracting human diseases.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to the tree-climbing lions. Lions do not normally climb trees, except when chased by another lion group or wild buffalo. However, the tree climbing lions found in QE-NP intentionally climb trees and rest on them in the afternoon, when the sun is high. This is a unique phenomenon. There have only been rare similar sightings of this in Lake Manyara National Park of Tanzania.
