A fantastic travel destination, Uganda is known as one of the top wildlife safari havens!

10 Hills from AirOne reason to choose Uganda over Rwanda for gorilla trekking is the variety of other parks you can add to your travel itinerary, creating an extensive Uganda Wildlife Safari. Add a chimpanzee trek in Kibale Forest National Park along with a climb on one of the extinct volcanoes for an ultimate trekking package. Chimpanzee trekking is often much easier than gorilla tracking due to the fact that chimps can be found in different trekking enviornments. Wildlife safaris in Queen Elizabeth Park, boat safari in Lake Mutanda or Lake Mburo, marvel at the views overlooking the Murchison Falls National Park, nature walks with overnights on the bank of the mighty Nile river. There are many options to consider for your Uganda holiday. Amanda is here to help you make your dreams come true when it comes to planning your Safari in Uganda.

Kampala has many fine restaurants and shopping to take in, learn about the people and their cultures, visit the markets and much more during your stay in the capital city of Uganda. Entebbe is a major town located on the shores of Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake. Accomodations range from basic to high-end in both cities. Uganda's ancient forests provide ideal habitats for a wide range of bird species. About 350 various species can be found in the diverse surroundings.

Gorilla trekking in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of the major focal points for visits to Uganda. Located within the Bwindi Forest National Park are four areas where one can trek the mountain gorillas; Buhoma, Ruhija, Rushaga and Nkuingo. Gorilla trekking is also available in south-west Uganda in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park however, gorilla treks are less popular here as there is only one habitualized gorilla family in Mgahingao Gorilla Park.

Bwindi National Park is home large numbers of moutain gorillas. Gorilla groups enjoy the foliage and various vegetation areas and typically spend their time in the Hagenia forests where gallium vines can be consumed all year long. The park is known as the "Place of darkness" due to it's thick canopy of tangled trees. Thanks to gorilla trekking the population of mountain gorillas in Uganda has increased by one third in past years.

To get to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest you can take a charter flight from Entebbe or Kampala to Kisoro (near Bwindi) otherwise the journey is done by road from Kampala or Entebbe. The journey by road will take about 6 - 8 hours and during rainy season 4x4 transport is required. Customized itineraries can be created to include all of your "bucket list" items. A gorilla trekking holiday in Uganda demands a longer time frame compared to a gorilla trek in other countries due to travel times. For this reason I recommend booking at least a three or four night package. For those with more time I would recommend the Uganda Complete package. For those with limited time, shorter travel itineraries can be arranged. Contact Amanda to learn how to make the most of your time in Uganda.
