Lush, green and stunningly beautiful, little-visited Uganda is a gem of a country rich in both culture and wildlife. With 10 national parks, including the dramatic Kidepo Valley National Park and the Queen Elizabeth National Park, the source of the Nile, Lake Victoria and the famous Mountains of the Moon, Uganda has plenty to shout about, but is best known for its chimpanzees in Kibale and mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
Gorilla trekking in Uganda is one of the most magical wildlife experiences on earth - choose a gorilla trekking safari and we promise you'll have a safari adventure you'll remember forever.
