Uganda Wildlife Safaris
Explore Uganda’s wildlife, the land gifted by nature!!
Wildlife safaris in Uganda have continuously attracted the attention of prospective travelers interested in exploring the great pearl. In Uganda, Wildlife is majorly divided into Fauna and Flora.
Uganda as a country gifted by mother nature; contains a reasonable percentage share of both fauna and flora in Africa and the world at large.
Safaris in Uganda have been enhanced by the lush flora, which include forests like Mabira, Budondo, Kibale, Maramagambo, Kalinzu and many other plantation forests. A tour to one of these tropical forests will reward you with various adventurous and eco-tourism activities such as Chimpanzee trekking, Birding expeditions, Butterfly watching, nature walks, watching other primate species like baboons, white and black colobus monkeys, golden monkeys, among many species.
A typical Uganda wildlife safari is unique in that it combines the green, lush forests with dry Savannah experiences. One can enjoy some of the lovely conventional game viewing and admire the scenery of jagged Rwenzori Mountains in the backdrop of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Watch out for leopard, giraffe, elephant and hippo or search for the tree-climbing lions in Ishasha sector. While the Murchison Falls national park presents a life time opportunity to view the world’s most powerful water falls, that forces itself through a 7 meter gorge forming an extremely thunderous roar as it heads to the Albertine delta.
Wildlife tours in Uganda generally become more lively and memorable; when spiced up with the magical Gorilla trekking safari in the misty Bwindi impenetrable national park. This exercise is both adventurous and physically challenging. But well worth it upon encountering the majestic mountain gorillas deep in the rocky jungles.
Having a day out to Uganda’s smallest Savannah park, Lake Mburo national park will enrich you with sights of many antelopes and cape Buffaloes roaming the plains. The park is well known for the high concentration of Savannah species, including the buffaloes, antelopes, zebras, and the recent introduction of the Giraffes from Murchison falls national park and many other species.
