Gorilla jungles


The Pearl of Africa

Uganda lays claim to an astonishing number of primate species, some of the richest birding in Africa, plenty of plains game and some elusive and unusual big cats. No other country in Africa ticks all these boxes. The stunning ‘Mountains of the Moon’ are mist-swathed volcanoes that tower above Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where half of the world’s remaining 600-odd mountain gorillas live. As its evocative name suggests, the rainforest is a dense jungle of thick undergrowth and hanging vines concealing not only gorillas, but also colobus monkeys, exotic birdlife and clouds of colourful butterflies.

Whilst Uganda’s primary attraction is its primates it also showcases shy sitatunga, great herds of Uganda kob, spotted hyena & leopard in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Tree-climbing lions can be seen in Ishasha, chimpanzees exist in Kibale and there are elephants, hippos & waterbirds galore on the Kazinga Channel. Jinja boasts the source of the Nile and Murchison Falls National Park offers spectacular waterfalls and some of the most exhilarating white water in Africa. Known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’ Uganda offers far more than just primates.
