The country is all about active adventures and outdoor experiences, so you really have a huge wealth of options. Uganda has a remarkable number of attractions and safari activities that can keep you busy during the entire trip. From the most famous mountain gorilla trekking experiences, you will be amazed by the abundant form. In terms of safari and wildlife activities, gorilla trekking is at the top of the list and many other activities follow.
Safaris are great opportunities to unwind, interact and escape your daily schedule and thus staying active will make your experience more interesting. Going on search of a habituated gorilla group in the misty rainforest of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park will offer life changing experiences as you encounter human’s closest relatives. The activity involves quite strenuous hiking up and down hills, and the trek can take several hours, thus requires some level of physical fitness. The other famous safari activity is the Chimpanzee trekking. For real active holiday experience, a chimp trekking must be included in your bucket list. Just like what being active means, chimpanzees are active and strenuous – but rewarding wildlife safari activity.
Chimps can move very fast through the treetop canopy, so following a group can mean high-paced hiking, which will definitely get your heart rate up. For wildlife active adventures/Tours in Uganda, Chimps are a must include. One other active wildlife experience that doesn’t get as much press as gorillas and chimps – but thrilling nonetheless – is rhino tracking done on foot at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary in Central Uganda. Rhinos are one of the most endangered animal species in Uganda an one of the Big Five Animal species in Africa. Tracking these animals is interesting and offers exceptional safari experience.
Uganda wildlife active holidays/Tours even get much better when it comes to visiting the top wildlife National Parks Like Murchison Falls National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park among others. The chance to see plains game sweeping across huge savannahs, rivers full of hippo and crocs, big night skies studded with stars, lions snoozing in the long grass and leopards lolling in trees is the ultimate wildlife experience.
Acacia safaris packages offer plenty of opportunities to explore Uganda’s magnificent parks and landscapes on foot: guided hikes are on offer in many reserves, the crater lakes area has endless hiking trails surrounded by dramatic scenery, and then there are the wonderful day hikes from Sipi Falls in Eastern Uganda. For more challenging trekking, you can climb Africa’s third highest peak, Mount Stanley, in the beautiful and dramatic Rwenzori Mountains, or do the fairly easy four-day return route to the top of Mount Elgon, a giant extinct volcano. Adventures in Uganda can keep you really active all day.
