Trip Overview

This 14 day itinerary is a fantastic tribute to the savannahs and primates of Uganda. It is an incredible journey into the Pearl of Africa, exploring the rich mosaic of different floras and faunas. Start with game drives and bush walks in the rich savannah plains of Kidepo Valley National Park. Then onto Murchison Falls National Park where you cruise the White Nile, view the magnificent Murchison Falls and explore the wilderness in your safari vehicle. The itinerary also includes memorable trekking experiences for both our closest relative, the chimpanzee and the mighty mountain gorilla and the thrilling chance to search the Ishasha wilderness for tree-climbing lions, hyena and other wildlife. A luxury, private guided safari portraying some of the best bits that Uganda has to offer.

What to Expect

Activity Level 4

You should be in good overall health and be able to hike for 4+ hours in relatively high attitude conditions (about 4,000–7,000 feet). While gorilla and chimp tracking you will need a comfortable, hard wearing, pair of walking shoes or boots, with good tread and support. Trekking conditions are generally very muddy / slippery and there are uphill sections that may be quite steep and strenuous. The average annual temperature is 72 °F, with an annual rainfall of 49 inches. You will need to take some wet weather gear as it does rain in the mountainous areas on a regular basis. The main language is English, and the basic infrastructure is sound and rapidly becoming better. Most roads are paved and in reasonably good condition by African standards. However, there are some sections of bumpy and dusty dirt roads, especially in the more mountainous areas where the going will be slow.
