A rugged, mountainous land famous for its waterfalls, alpine lakes and home to the majestic Gorilla.

Uganda is remembered for its natural beauty, its serenity and its sheer diversity. Countless lakes, rivers, waterfalls and wetlands make Uganda a lush tropical haven. Lake Victoria dominates the South, the clear blue waters forming the Nile River which journeys the length of the country. The legendary “Mountains of the Moon” and the Virunga volcanoes form the Western borders. The far North stretches towards the Sahara and the East transforms into stark arid plains. Uganda is nestled on the western arm of the Great Rift Valley and boasts flora and fauna species of both East and West Africa. The country is home to the highest population of the endangered mountain gorilla, the rare shoebill stork, and shy sitatunga. Guests can also trek to see chimpanzees in Kibale Forest as well as cheetah in Kidepo Valley.

For guests interested in bird-watching, Uganda is Africa’s finest birding destination, home to around 1,000 species, including the rare shoebill stork and Shelley’s Crimsonwing. Uganda offers visitors one-in-lifetime wildlife viewing opportunities, spectacularly dramatic landscapes, and warm, humble and welcoming people.

Where is Uganda?

Uganda is a landlocked country, a hidden gem of mountains and wonder located on the east coast of Africa, inland from Kenya and Tanzania. Although there are many road crossings into Uganda, flying in through Entebbe International Airport is the best way to get situated to start your adventure. The great thing about leaving it to us is that you get to experience some of the best things to do in Uganda while knowing that we have you covered and know exactly where to take you.

Things to know before you arrive

Travel into Uganda requires a valid Yellow Fever vaccination certificate, so make sure you are up to date with your travel shots and have your documentation on hand. You’ll also need to fill out an electronic visa application before your entry.

Generally Uganda has a mild, tropical climate averaging around 25-29°C (77- 84°F), but, like other mountainous locations it’s important to plan ahead with warm clothes if you’re trekking at high altitudes. And don’t forget your best walking shoes!

Accommodation in Uganda

The Kampala Sheraton is a fantastic way to start off your journey! A short walk from all the best nightlife, this hotel has amazing amenities and will give you a chance to see the Wildlife Conservation Education Centre, the botanic gardens and discover some of Kampala’s divine cuisines.

And if you’re looking for a unique experience that is off the beaten track (without skimping on opulence), then the Lemala Wildwaters Lodge has everything you need. Located on a large stretch of private island in the middle of the Nile and only accessible by boat, there truly aren’t many resorts in the world like this. The dramatic rapids that surround the resort are the perfect backdrop for young honeymooners, solo relaxers or anyone who enjoys being pampered. With  candle-lit three-course dinners and locally handmade furniture, each unique suite is joined by a raised wooden walkway that connects you to the restaurant, bar and library on your private island retreat.

Places to visit in Uganda

Water plays a big part in what makes Uganda special. Almost 20% of Uganda is made up of rivers and lakes! Lake Victoria, one of the Great Lakes of Africa is one of the most unique holiday destinations in Uganda. The lake is home to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Mabamba Bay wetlands and activities like horseback riding, quad biking, fishing and even bungee jumping!

If you want to experience the majesty of the steamy Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, you’ll get the chance to meet gorillas first hand, a truly rare experience. Visiting and trekking with the gorillas requires a permit, which we will assist you in arranging. A Unesco World Heritage Site, this national park is a bird-watcher’s paradise with knowledgeable guides and almost guaranteed sightings of some of the world’s rarest creatures.

Staying safe in Uganda

It’s always important to remain vigilant when travelling overseas. Booking your adventure holiday in Uganda with us means you can have peace of mind that you will be in safe hands while exploring everything the country has to offer. It’s important to keep up to date with any required vaccinations, and make sure to have enough of any medication you may need if you are trekking outside of cities. And with all that adventuring, make sure you always have water!
