A visit to Uganda, ‘The Pearl of Africa’, is nothing short of magical. With stunning natural landscapes and an abundance of wildlife, this East African country has much to offer.

This Ultimate Uganda itinerary will take you on an unforgettable journey through this spectacular country. You’ll discover the chimpanzee rich forests of Kibale and the forgotten wilderness of Kidepo, but nothing quite compares to the experience of tracking mountain gorillas through the impenetrable vegetation of Bwindi Forest, one of its last remaining refuges.
Gorilla trekking can make for tough walking, but the rewards of getting to within touching distance of these endangered creatures, who share 97.7% of our DNA, will last forever.

The forest is also home to hundreds of birds in addition to leopards, rare forest elephants, buffalo, antelope and the giant forest hog.
