Uganda is a country full of contrasts with the Central African forests merging with the East African Savanna and open plains that sink beneath the great lakes in the Albertine Rift valley rising to chill the snow-capped mountain tops. The country offers excitingly varied tourist activities in the 10 national parks and 13 game reserves and other touristic places around the country. Here you can look out for the lions in the open savanna grasslands or fig trees of Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth National park before going further south to enjoy a shared cold lounge with the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable national park.
For primate lovers you have a chance to encounter 13 primate species including the chimpanzees in the shady forests of Kibale national park or you can opt to spend an afternoon with the yawning hippos and crocodiles on the banks of the waters as you cruise on the Kazinga Channel.
Love to see the world from heights? You can trek the 3 volcanic musketeers that make Mgahinga gorilla national park, the Elgon Caldera that is protected by the Mt. Elgon national park and the snowcapped but equator crossed Mt. Stanley in the Rwenzori National park.
Tick off some birds from the birders haven (Semliki national park) whose deep forest sit on the hot floor and enjoy driving in the vast semi-arid savanna plains of Kidepo Valley national park full of big game surrounded by a multitude of rugged hills to the thundering waters of the Nile as they force into a 6M gorge. All this make Uganda one of Africa’s most valid and memorable destination for safari seekers.
