Home to more than half the world’s mountain gorilla population and a wealth of other primates, including chimpanzees, Uganda has a fascinating culture, magnificent scenery, and the finest birding on the continent, with 1,000 recorded species.
The roads in Uganda are good and the easiest way to see the country is by 4×4 safari vehicle, travelling with your own private driver / guide. High quality lodges are now found in most of the National Parks and game reserves. Flying by light aircraft between reserves, although expensive, has become increasingly popular as a means of seeing in the country’s highlights in a single trip.

"I would like to thank the travel advisor... for his patience, help and advice during the booking process. We were rather late in trying to arrange everything and I think we presented him with quite a challenge! He rose to it brilliantly. Almost every aspect of the holiday went like clockwork and we had a wonderful time. I think we were quite lucky to get an experienced driver too. His depth of knowledge of the wildlife, and in particular the birds, was invaluable. All in all, a fantastic holiday and we hope to return to Uganda in the not too distant future.
