The Hidden Wonders of Uganda

Three hundred reasons for visiting Uganda are the number of endangered mountain gorillas living in the mists of the rainforest clad volcanoes of Bwindi and Machinga. A thousand more reasons are the number of bird species in Uganda twice as many as in most other African safari countries. And then there’s the scenery...the towering “Mountains of the Moon”, lakes Edward, Albert and Victoria lying in the Great Rift Valley, and the Blue Nile which cascades over Murchison Falls.

It may be the colonial sounding names, and images of Dian Fossey encountering those magnificent gorillas in the mist which gives Uganda its air of romance and mystery. And it is a mystery why a place with such unique scenery and wildlife and such welcoming people sees so few visitors. So, this is a country where you can still enjoy a sense of pioneering and discovery of hidden wonders.

If you want to see the gorillas, we'll fly you down to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for a two or three day gorilla safari.  If you want to see more of this beautiful country, Africa Exclusive will arrange for you to have your own private 4 wheel drive vehicle and a very experienced private guide who will take you from one magnificent location to another and on your safaris. Your safari will be between a week and ten days focussing upon the western part of Uganda. Entebbe airport is in the east, so to begin you have an eight hour journey which takes you to the wonderfully named Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. As you walk bent double through thick undergrowth the name seems justified yet your reward comes in a magical encounter in a remote clearing with a family of mighty mountain gorillas.

The next week brings one scenic wonder after another as you head through Queen Elizabeth National Park with its lions, antelope, giraffe and elephant, roaming rich forest, open plains and tiny lakes set in volcanic craters. On past shimmering rift valley lakes linked by the Nile, surrounded by forested slopes where you can seek out the chimpanzees of Ndali. Those who love birds will be gripped by a desire to cancel their plane ticket home and remain here, enthralled by shoebill storks, immense flocks of water birds, great raptors and a thousand species of birds which make this the best country in Africa for birding. Your guide’s piercing eyesight and encyclopaedic knowledge becomes apparent as he names each one and patiently leads you to the best viewing points.

Your Ugandan safari might end at Murchison Falls where you can take a boat ride on the Nile towards the base of the falls watching the Nile cascade into a chasm with a great roar and cloud of spray. Call us now to begin planning your visit to this most friendly and beautiful country.
