What To See and Do On Your Uganda Safari
One of the top draws in Uganda is a gorilla safari as Uganda is the only country where the endangered mountain gorilla can be seen in its natural habitat. Amazingly, Uganda is home to more than half of the remaining gorillas in the world. In addition, you might be lucky enough to see the five types of monkeys that call Uganda home – the colobus, guenons, baboons, patas and mangabeys.

Another reason to plan a Uganda safari is that it is home to over one thousand bird species. If you are a bird lover, viewing the rare Shoebill stork is always a highlight. Your safari itinerary can be custom designed to give you plenty of bird watching opportunities if you so desire.

Uganda also boasts one of the largest concentrations of crocodiles and hippopotamuses giving you even more thrilling reasons to plan a trip.

Along with an abundance of wildlife, your Uganda safari will give you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the rich biodiversity of Uganda’s forest reserves. Just imagine gazing up at huge buttressed trees covered with tangled vegetation of lianas and epiphytes. You just might catch a glimpse of the scaly tailed flying squirrel or the elephant shrew while you are enjoying the floral and fauna.
