While Uganda is famously known for its gorilla population, something that should not be missed on a tailor-made itinerary to this beautiful country, it also boasts stunning and diverse natural landscapes; home to a mixture of wildlife. This includes tree-climbing lions, chimpanzees and a variety of birdlife, including the shoe-billed stork. It’s also a wonderful place to experience rural village life, interacting with locals and understanding the rich cultures of the country.
With 20 national parks and reserves, Uganda has some of the greatest diversity of wildlife and landscapes of any African country. The scenery varies from the dry savanna lands of Kidepo National Park in the north to the forests of Semliki, Kibale and Bwindi in the south. Queen Elizabeth National Park is home to elusive tree-climbing lions, while chimpanzees inhabit Kibale forest. Kidepo, Uganda’s most remote park, with its jagged hills, golden grasses, soft glowing light and plains strewn with wildlife, is perfect for those looking for a true wilderness experience. Wildlife in Kidepo is abundant, and lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, zebras and large herds of buffalo can all be spotted.
A highlight of a trip to Uganda is most certainly travelling to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, located in the south of the country. It is home to some of the few remaining mountain gorillas in the world, who live in one of the oldest and most biologically diverse forests on Earth.
Seeing mountain gorillas ranks as one of the most incredible wildlife experiences in the world, especially as so few of these amazing creatures still exist in the wild.
