Safaris and Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Come face to face with the mountain Gorilla in Uganda

Uganda, often referred to as the 'Pearl of Africa', is a country of striking beauty and home to the deepest crater lake in all of Africa, Lake Bunyoni. Its national parks and wildlife reserves boast over 300 species of mammal and more than 1000 species of birds, though Uganda's major attraction is the approximate 600 remaining mountain gorillas. You will need a gorilla permit to do the trek to see the gorillas, which we organize for you. The permits are vital in helping finance patrols that are responsible for protecting the gorillas from poachers.

Uganda presents a unique experience and our overland camping safaris and gorilla trekking safaris departing in 2020 and 2021 offer you the chance to get up close and personal with our closest living relatives.
