Uganda has always been a top draw destination for travellers from all over the world that are looking for the perfect and complete African safari. The relatively small size of Uganda notwithstanding, on offer is the best of everything that Africa has to offer, and the sheer variety of it all – the landscapes, topography, plant life, wildlife, bird life, culture and peoples – is mind-boggling, and guaranteed to captivate all types of travellers, whatever their interest. The star attractions are the endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Chimpanzees of Kibale Forest – Uganda is the only country that has two of the three great apes located inside her borders. But, those that dare to discover and seek out Uganda’s treasures will be blown away by the remarkable variety of activities, encounters and memories that wait around each bend!

East Africa’s Top Experiences
One of the last true places in Africa where you can explore the real wild, East Africa is surrounded by incredibly untamed beauty, mesmerising scenery, fascinating wildlife and diverse cultures. It is only here where you can experience Big Game viewing; the world’s largest animal migration in the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara; track endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Volcanoes National Park; take a relaxing boat cruise on the River Nile or one of the many lakes in the region; climb some of Africa’s tallest mountains including Kilimanjaro and the Rwenzori’s; follow a band of chimpanzees crashing through the wild forests in Kibale and Nyungwe forests and unwind on the pristine beaches of the Indian Ocean coast.
East Africa has much more to offer when it comes to the culture and heritage of her people, some of who have resided in what is now commonly accepted as the cradle of humankind, for centuries. East Africa’s tribes and kingdoms are as diverse as they are rich in heritage.
