Uganda Gorillas In Style

Enjoy once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounter of rare mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. A superb unforgettable experience showing you the true wonders of Uganda with stays at luxurious forest lodges.

 
Bwindi National Park is home to half of the world’s population of endangered mountain gorillas, living happily in protected rainforests dating back over 25,000 years. With an expert guide you’ll track gorillas on foot through the dense forest which is home to seven primate species. You’ll get insider access to one of Africa’s last remaining gorilla sanctuaries.

  • Uganda: ‘the Pearl of Africa’

    When Winston Churchill set foot in Uganda in 1902, he was so overwhelmed by the beauty of the country he called it the ‘Pearl of Africa’. He was right. This where the East African Savannah meets the West African jungle.

    Where else but in this uniquely lush destination can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippos and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to visit the majestic mountain gorillas.
