Regions in Uganda

From national parks and reserves to lakes and forests, alongside unforgettable wildlife adventures, Uganda has plenty to offer on a luxury holiday in Africa. 

Entebbe sits on the shores of Lake Victoria and offers an attractive introduction to Uganda, with everything from wildlife centres to beaches, so you can head out on the water on a sunset cruise, come face to face with chimpanzees or relax on the sands. Kampala, meanwhile, is a bustling, colourful hub with a rich, eclectic history - find out more in its palaces, temples and regal buildings.
The beautiful, ancient UNESCO World Heritage-listed Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to some 300 mountain gorillas living alongside around 350 chimpanzees. Led by expert guides, you’ll push your way past jungle creepers and undergrowth before stopping in your tracks as you come face to face with your primate cousins.
For guests who want a traditional safari in Uganda, Queen Elizabeth National Park is the place to go. Having mountain-trekked through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the park’s sweeping savannah offers more leisurely ways to explore - think game drives and walking safaris with lions peering down from the trees above.

Drama and panoramic views dominate Uganda’s stunning northernmost park, the Kidepo Valley National Park. Craggy mountains loom in the distance, birds of prey soar above, and formidable inselbergs (isolated rocks and mountains) erupt from the flat ground. Equally impressive is Kidepo Valley’s predator population, including tree-climbing lions and wild dogs which skulk amongst the huge herds of elephants. 

Yes, there’s stunning birdlife, forest elephants and colobus monkeys, but for us, Kibale National Park is chimp central. Kibale is one of the best places for chimpanzee trekking in Africa, where the thrill of hearing a far-off whoop is beaten only when you come face to face with man’s closest relative.

A wildlife-teeming broth of swamps and open water, Lake Mburo is the largest of five lakes in Uganda. Thanks to the mixture of habitat at the water’s edge, you’ll encounter an endless stream of wildlife, including Africa’s largest antelope, the eland, as well as buffaloes, warthogs and hippos.

Cradling Uganda’s oldest and practically untouched forest, the beautiful Semliki Wildlife Reserve is the place to experience real wilderness. As you crunch your way through the woodland that creeps up the Rift Valley wall, there are flying squirrels, pygmy antelopes and bats all ready to give you a jump.
Murchison Falls is one of the most exhilarating sights in East Africa. In Murchison Falls National Park, combine this with boat trips alongside crocodiles, hippos and the extraordinary shoebill stork, and you've got yourself some serious exhilaration. As for other wildlife, lions and more are regularly seen stalking the grasslands north of the Nile.
