Meet tree-climbing lions, long-legged shoebills and gorillas in the mist
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.
