Gorilla Trekking & Big Game Viewing in Uganda – For many of us, an African safari is a proper bucket list vacation. The chance to see plains game sweeping across huge savannahs, rivers full of hippos and crocs, big night skies studded with stars, lions snoozing in the long grass, and leopards lolling in trees is the ultimate wildlife experience.
But what if you could have all this classic and delicious safari cake, and top it off with a unique and magical wildlife cherry: seeing mountain gorillas, up close and very personal? Combine your wildlife safari with classical mountain gorilla trekking in Uganda.
When it comes to wilderness experiences, Uganda is unbeatable! Uganda casts its spell as soon as you land at the airport with the cold breeze from the largest freshwater lake in Africa, competing against the warm rays of the sun that symbolize the warmth of its people. This extraordinary destination will further spice your vacation with the beautiful smiles, the warm welcome, graceful dances, and the prolific bird and wildlife – all on offer during your Uganda safari
There is much more on offer while in Uganda. While you can have the opportunity to engage in some of Africa’s most thought activities like gorilla trekking in Uganda, you can also embark on a Game viewing safari in different national parks. When you combine your gorilla trekking tour with a wildlife safari, you will be left with nothing to ever admire on a vacation.
Our well-crafted safari packages will allow you to experience the wild and sweet pearl of Africa, Uganda. Uganda is a top travel destination in its own right, despite frequently and sometimes unfairly being compared to its neighbors in East Africa. It is a very different kind of paradise—a land filled with nooks and crannies, trees, water, and natural light.
Both Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks, which offer gorilla trekking tours and the majority of Uganda’s safari parks, are situated in the western part of the country. This gives you an advantage on the distance you will need to transfer from one National Park to another. You can combine your gorilla trip in Uganda with Big Game viewing in some of the country’s top National Parks like Murchison Falls National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale Forest National Park, and Lake Mburo National Park, among others.
Game viewing in Uganda’s National Park is one of the most rewarding and thrilling. Watching wildlife roaming around different national parks will unleash your imagination of the wild and untamed Africa – with opportunities to witness some epic moments and perhaps catch a glance at predators making a kill.
You can also combine your gorilla trekking with another trekking experience in Uganda for example chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Park or Murchison Falls National Park or Queen Elizabeth National Park. Different National parks will also offer you a range of other safari activities that you can engage in while in Uganda.
