Straddling the Equator at the heart of the continent and sandwiched between Kenya, Rwanda, Congo, Sudan and Tanzania, Uganda is a small country by comparison with its African neighbours. Much of the country sits at about 1,000m above sea level.
Unbelievable Uganda, described by Winston Churchill as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, a country where you can trek up a snow covered mountain on the Equator, where you can raft or kayak the White Nile in up to Grade 5 rapids and where half the population of endangered mountain gorillas live.
Uganda’s most alluring features are its beautiful forests, wildlife, lakes and mountains, and in recent years it has become very well known for its exceptional gorilla safari. Although it also has a number of general safari parks, Uganda does not compare as a big five safari destination with the other countries we offer and for this reason, our operations in Uganda are limited to gorilla trekking.
