Uganda is renowned as having one of the highest levels of biodiversity on earth and is the ultimate safari destination for travellers looking for a dose of adventure alongside unique nature experiences. The gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest are without a doubt the most sought-after of all Uganda’s wildlife but there’s much more too. Combining gorilla trekking with the traditional safari experiences of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls, wildlife holidays in Uganda are hard to beat. Encountering the endangered chimpanzees of Kibale Forest National Park is just another extraordinary experience to be had during a safari holiday in Uganda, and this is one of the best places in Africa to see these wild primates.

  • Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

    One of the best places to see mountain gorillas in Africa is Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, and a visit here is undoubtedly the most popular wildlife experience in Uganda.

  • Queen Elizabeth National Park

    Queen Elizabeth National Park is the most popular area in Uganda for those seeking a traditional safari experience. Within the park boundaries there are 95 mammal species and some 600 bird species.

  • Murchison Falls National Park

    Characterised by the waters of the River Nile plunging from the heights of the Rift Valley, Murchison Falls is Uganda’s oldest and largest national park.

  • Kibale Forest National Park

    Kibale Forest boasts the highest number and density of primates in Uganda, and there are approximately 1,450 chimpanzees living in this diverse tropical landscape.

  • Kampala And Entebbe

    Kampala and Entebbe are Uganda’s two main cities, located across a range of hills 35 kms apart from one another on the shores of Lake Victoria.

  • Lake Mburo National Park

    Lake Mburo National Park is located to the east of Kampala. It is ideally situated to break up the popular driving route between Kampala and both the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Queen Elizabeth National Parks.

When to go


Uganda typically has two annual dry periods between June and August and December and February. During these months wildlife is easier to spot and primate trekking through the rainforest is less challenging. Wildlife, including primates, can be seen year-round and so travel can be arranged at any time. Uganda’s wettest months are usually April and May.
