A land of wild and vibrant contrasts, eye sight grasslands, tropical plains and hills, and the mighty gorilla tours Uganda, landlocked Uganda is a wildlife safari destination with over 52 indigenous tribes of the most welcoming men and women.

Uganda safari is home to everything from elephants to zebra and more birds than what your eyes can admire a wonderland to the great gorilla tours Uganda. With numerous national parks and reserves, gorilla tours uganda  is a natural choice for wildlife enthusiasts, a one on one with the mighty Gorillas, chimpanzees and all primates. If its nature and its authenticity you’re looking for, The Pearl of Africa is the right place.

As a Ugandan it took me a few months of unbothered and non stop travel, through the rain forests ,rift valleys, hills and mountains passing distant volcanoes and crater lakes,  most of These are actually in my home area. These gave me a brand new  image of Uganda- my mama land. Beautiful, unspoiled countryside, rural communities with their own lifestyle and traditions, and the vibrant  wildlife sightings you’d be lucky to repeat in a lifetime not forgetting the mighty  mountain gorilla tours uganda.

Touring Uganda

Most trips take a circular route  or as customized by you around the country. You fly into Entebbe, rent and in the morning fly to kidepo  valley national park with a chatter airplane in the northern uganda ,  on the ground travel in a 4×4 with a private driver-guide in a clockwise or anti-clockwise loop. The Fly in stlyle uganda safari, which I recommend, takes in Murchison falls, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest , Queen Elizabeth National Park and Kibale Forest National Park, lake Bunyonyi  and your last day in Rwanda..

The roads can be bumpy and they sometimes skirt the edge of steep drops, but your driver/guides are familiar with the route and put you at ease. As there are some long journeys, you get to see a large portion of the country and its shifting landscapes.

Gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

gorilla tours uganda

There are more than 1,000  mountain gorillas left in the world, and Uganda is home to half of them, now under strict protection. Several families of around 15 to 20 gorillas reside in this impenetrable forest in the southwest corner of the country, four of which have been habituated to humans.

Despite the challenges, walking through this truly impenetrable forest is still a highlight. The anticipation builds with every step as you make your way around tangled trees and thick, snake-like roots.

Other wildlife sightings and sounds — the forest is one of the most biologically diverse in Africa, home to red-tailed and colobus monkeys, bush buck, over 350 bird species and even the odd forest elephant, which are rarely seen but leave behind tell-tale tracks.

Travel Information


MONEY

The official currency of Uganda is the Ugandan Shilling, notes of which come in denominations of 1,000 through to 50,000. However a dollar rules the whole world as it dominates the uganda market also, most of the hotels and travel agencies take dollars only 2009 year of printing and above.

As a rough guide US$1 = 3,800 and £1 = 5,000 Nearly all tourist lodges will accept $US notes (newer than 2009) however if you wish to purchase anything locally (souvenirs, snacks etc…) you will need Ugandan Shillings.

The best idea is to change $US upon arrival in Entebbe – notes of $50 and $100 attract a better exchange rate. Visa and MasterCard Credit Cards are becoming more widely accepted, we can advise you on which lodges do or do not accept them.

HEALTH  ON A GORILLA TOURS UGANDA

If you are planning to travel to Uganda for a gorilla tour uganda safari,your  advised to take a visit to your local travel clinic or Doctor for advice on vaccinations and medication. For an overview of the typically recommended vaccinations, the CDC Traveler Health page is a good place to start.

Most parts of Uganda contain a malaria risk and a preventative medication is considered mandatory for travelers. Consult your doctor or travel clinic as to the best medication for you.

Uganda is a largely peaceful country and the vast majority of tourist visits are enjoyed without incident. Crime when it occurs is generally in the form of petty theft; we advise to always carry your money securely on your person and use room safes in the hotels and lodges that you visit.

Please consult your government’s Travel Advisory Page for Uganda and feel free to ask us for clarification on any thing is traveling  for a gorilla tour uganda.

WEATHER

Uganda straddles the Equator so experiences a tropical climate of “wet” and “dry” seasons. Changes to the global climate in recent years means seasonal changes are less predictable than they once were, however seasons are generally:

Dryer: January to February & June to September.

Wetter: March to May & October, November till december. Travel is possible and enjoyable all year round, rain does not usually hinder travel and can produce some dramatic vistas and a welcome coolness in hotter areas.

 

FOOD AND DRINK

Traditional Uganda food consists of starch staples such as maize flour, matoke (plantain), cassava and potatoes. These are served with beans, vegetables and meats such as fish, beef, chicken or goat. Most lodges and restaurants serve western dishes incorporating some of the above local ingredients.

Drinking water is widely and inexpensively available; we do not recommend drinking tap or river water in Uganda. Sodas and beers are widely available and safe to drink. The best value wine/GIN is UGANDA WARAJI.
