Uganda Budget Travel


Highlights of Uganda - the 'Pearl of Africa'

Uganda is a landlocked country characterized by lush forests, mountains and lakes. Uganda is a popular destination for travellers wishing to see the African Mountain Gorillas that have made this small country famous. Other popular highlights of Uganda include Lake Victoria, Lake Bunyoni and the Chimpanzee Sanctuary on Ngamba Island.

The Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda's most popular protected area is scenically located on the rift valley floor between two lakes with towering mountains as a backdrop. This park consists of savannah grasslands studded with euphorbia trees and is home to a rich variety of bird species and mammals such as buffalo, hippo, lions, antelopes and hyenas. A visit to the highlights of Uganda will give you a greater understanding and appreciation of your closest relatives in the Primate Family.

Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Visit Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in southwestern Uganda for the once in a lifetime experience of gorilla trekking where you get to encounter the endangered mountain gorillas in the wild. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is best known for its primate populations and is home to nearly half the world’s mountain gorillas, with over 300 endangered gorillas. Bwindi is also high in biodiversity, being home to a rich variety of fauna and flora, as well as being a birding paradise, inhabited by several Red Data Book species.

Chimpanzaa Trekking in Uganda

Kibale National Park, in western Uganda, is one of Africa’s best chimpanzee trekking destinations consisting mostly of equatorial rainforest. Home to numerous forest dwelling wildlife species, Kibale boasts one of the highest concentrations of primates in the world. Species include Black-and-White and Grey Cheeked Colobus, L'Hoest's monkeys and Galagos, with chimpanzees being the main attraction.
