Uganda wildlife adventure
Uganda is the ultimate safari destination. With more biodiversity than almost any other country, youll see a variety of wildlife in a variety of wildly different habitats. From tropical rainforests to open savannah, fresh water beaches to semi-arid desert, in Uganda you can experience a range of contrasting landscapes, each with its own unique charm and ecosystem.
Aspen Travel is proud to partner with some of the finest safari operators in the world, so today, were going to have a look at some of the places youll see during your incredible trip of a lifetime with Somak Safaris, or Cox and Kings Travel.
Kibale Forest National Park
The Jane Goodall Foundation has done a lot to conserve the chimp habitats of Uganda and the Kibale Forest National Park is one of the best places to spend an entire day with wild chimpanzees in their native land. An experienced guide will take you to the chimpanzees early in the morning, where youll be able to watch the chimps taking apart their nocturnal nests. Throughout the day, youll see them playing, swinging in the trees, feeding on leaves, seeds and fruit, high up above your head, as well as occasionally making their way across the forest floor.
Queen Elizabeth National Park
One of the best loved Safari locations in Africa, the Queen Elizabeth National Park
encompasses grassland, woodland, crater lakes and swamps. Seriously rich in flora and fauna, this is an area of the world which requires at least a few days of your time. This is why the escorted tours we offer will provide high quality, comfortable accommodation in the park itself, so that you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of Ugandan wildlife on your doorstep.
Discover the tree-climbing lions of Ishasa and hippos in the water as you cruise along the Zazinga Channel. Elephants, leopards, buffalos and topi are never too far away, as are an incredible variety of striking African birds. Your guide and tracker will be able to direct your gaze in the right direction, to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
Lake Mburo National Park
As you cruise along this stunning lake, teeming with life, turn your attention to the shore, where youll see herds of zebra, impala, buffalo, as well as hyenas, jackals and antelopes too. If youre really lucky, youll get a rare glimpse of the elusive leopards that live here, before they slip back into the shadows.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
This is one of the worlds premier spots for gorilla sightings, although with only just over 600 left in the area, its important to marvel at these beautiful creatures while its still possible and give whatever you can to aid their conservation. Your guide will lead you deep into the forest, where youll sit quietly, not far from the group, taking in their various grumbling sounds, watching them eat and gently living their lives.
