The first day of our trip to Uganda is spent traveling from Entebbe airport to Murchison Falls National Park via Kampala, by 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda is the home for a great variety of typical african savannah animals, in addition to hundreds of birds, some of them very rare. During our game drive safari in Murchison Falls National park, we have spotted many baboons, giraffes, several types of antelopes, buffalos, elephants, hippopotamus, warthog, river warthog, vultures, eagles and many other birds. We have missed only the lions.
Chimpanze trekking Chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Forest <<-- GO
Traveling from Murchison Falls to Kibale forest requires almost one full day, because of the bad roads. The Kibale forest national park in Uganda, is an excellent place to see the chimpanze in its natural habitat and we are lucky enough to meet many of them, just after a few minutes trek in the rainforest. We overnight near Kibale inside a fantastic resort build along an ancient volcano crater containing a blue lake inside.
Hot springs Tour to Semiliki National park inside the African Rift Valley <<-- GO
Another long day drive on very bad roads, traveling from Kibale forest to the next destination of our Uganda safari tour: Queen Elizabeth National park. Along the way, we stop in Semiliki (or Semuliki) park, in the middle of the great African Rift Valley, interesting for hot springs and a rainforest hosting many primates, frogs and snakes. Semiliki is one of the youngest national parks in Uganda.
Queen Elizabeth game drive Queen Elizabeth and Isasha sector game drive safari <<-- GO
A Game drive safari in Uganda would not be complete without a tour to Queen Elizabeth National Park and its Ishasha sector. This park, in western Uganda, is dominated by a drier savannah featuring small hills, ancient volcanic craters containing salt lakes, majestic Euphorbia trees and many animals. Unfortunately, we found several area of the park damaged by fire and, due to the uncommon hot and dry days, we don't see any lion.
Hyppos Kazinga channel cruise sightseeing hippos, buffalos, elephants and birds <<-- GO
Uganda is not just gorilla and chimpanzee, but the country offers a tremendous variety of wildlife, including many rare birds, as well as amazing landscapes changing from drier savannah to rainforests. A cruise in Kazinga channel, in Queen Elizabeth Nation Park, has given us the opportunity to see hundreds of hippos and buffalos, drinking elephants, nile crocodiles, impalas and countless birds immersed into a landscape of rare beauty.
Uganda Gorilla Gorilla trekking in Uganda to Bwindi impenetrable forest <<-- GO
A gorilla trek is probably one of the most important reason for which tourists visit Uganda. Indeed, meeting the gorilla in their natural wilderness is an experience that cannot be forgotten. Our gorilla trekking is made in Bwindi Impenetrable forest in southwestern Uganda, near Rwanda, where we have met a large gorilla family with its silverback, several females and many cubs, including a small gorilla baby just three weeks old.
Lake Bunyonyi Bunyonyi lake tour in southern Uganda <<-- GO
With its 29 islands, some of which inhabited, the small Bunyonyi lake, located at 1950 meters above sea level and well 900 meters deep, offers a picturesque landscape that shouldn't be missed during any tour to Uganda. The lake is the home for many unique birds and is the ideal place if you are looking for a birding trip to Uganda. Overnight is possible on the mainland, but also on luxurious resorts built directly over the islands.
Leopard Mburo lake safari and birding trip <<-- GO
Mburo lake, together with Kidepo valley to the north, is the only place where to see the zebras in Uganda, and we see many of them, sometimes playing just in front of our car. Thanks to the expert eyes of our guide, we see also a beautiful leopard, a very rare event, as this animal is very shy. A cruise on lake Mburo has offered many birds, including some of them that can be found only here.
