From mist-shrouded forests, home to mountain gorillas, to a century-old botanical garden bursting with bird life and monkeys, to passes where the full force of the Nile gushes through a 20-foot gap in the rock, Uganda beckons travelers searching for a hidden jewel in the vast continent of Africa. Taking a road less-traveled into the misty rainforests of this unique country, International Expeditions’ Uganda expedition allows you to savor five national parks — Murchison Falls, Bwindi, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale and Lake Mburo — each one a destination in its own right. There’s no better way to absorb Uganda’s sweeping savannahs, captivating cultures and glorious wildlife than International Expeditions’ comprehensive Uganda safari.
Winston Churchill dubbed Uganda the “Pearl of Africa” for good reason. It’s a diverse country, green and tropical, with savannahs, forests, lakes, branches of the Nile and snow-covered peaks. Our comprehensive trek exposes you to wildlife and plants characteristic of both East and West Africa, meaning that you can see more on IE’s Uganda expedition than you could just about anywhere else.
Our Uganda travel package has extraordinary scope, taking in one highlight after another in five national parks. Unquestionably, IE guests rave about tracking gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest — seeing gorillas in the wild has to rank among the greatest thrills in natural history. Plus, on our Uganda expedition, you look for chimpanzees in the Kibale Forest; see world-famous Murchison Falls, the Mountains of the Moon and the wildlife of Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Your small Uganda travel group of just 10 guests will break into smaller groups when tracking gorillas and chimpanzees so you’re assured the personal attention you deserve for our knowledgeable local naturalists.
