Uganda Safaris and Tour Adventures
Uganda safaris give you a combined feel on jungle trails, African savannah game and boat safaris that you can’t find anywhere else in Africa. And that is the main reason why a Uganda safari should be on your travel bucket-list.
Uganda occupies an area of 241,551 sq. km of which 44,228 sq. km is swamps and open water bodies. Most of Uganda is located between the two arms of the great East African Rift Valley, with Lakes Albert and Edward extending for 150 km and 80 km along the along the Albertine Rift valley floor bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Uganda safaris are notable for their greatly differing landscapes with altitude ranges from 620 meters above sea level at the lowest point in the Albertine Basin to 5,109 meters above sea level at the snowcapped peaks of Rwenzori Mountains, the third highest Mountain in Africa.
To most visitors the attraction experienced firsthand on a Uganda Safaris trip is the spectacular sights and sounds often only glimpsed on the television screen. Uganda presents a unique opportunity to live this experience.
The natural attractions in Uganda safaris and tour adventures boast of are remarkable and these include 10 national parks, 12 wildlife reserves and 14 wildlife sanctuaries. The variety of animal, bird and plant species in the country is absolutely remarkable.
A Uganda safaris tour to the South west, where the borders of Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda meet, is a trip not soon to be forgotten. For it is there that the visitor will meet the rare and endangered mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat. At present there only four national parks in the Virunga Mountains where you can see the mountain Gorillas two of which are in Uganda: Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.
Gorilla Trekking is certainly the culmination of any visit to Uganda’s south west; it is by no means all there is to see. Western Uganda also boasts of a number of beautiful lakes and waterfalls, particularly Lake Nabugabo near Masaka, Lake Mburo National Park, a haven for acacia associated birds and a good variety of wildlife and Lake Bunyonyi near Kabale.
