Primate Tracking Collection
A destination famed for its gorilla trekking and chimpanzee tracking, we have tailored a set of safari itineraries featuring the most memorable encounters with these old world primates. From meeting a wild rare mountain gorilla family in the UNESCO designated Bwindi Impenetrable forest to tracking chimpanzees in Kibale, Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks. Uganda is also one of three countries to protect the Virunga volcano massif, home to a second population of mountain gorillas and the endemic golden monkeys. For the ultimate primate experience full day habituation exercises are available, during which you’ll spend an extended period of time with the gorillas, chimps or monkeys and the team that is living and working with them to protect and conserve their species.

Birding Tours Collection
Uganda's a bird watching paradise, with world renowned birding safaris! A true birder utopia with 1075 recorded species, including twenty four Albertine Rift Endemics notably the Grauer's Broadbill and Shelley's Crimsonwing. Home to around half of the species on the African continent, the diversity of birdlife here is truly breathtaking thanks to our location straddling the more arid north, East African savannah and West African rainforests. Despite the prolific number of species recorded due to the shared geographical locations only one, the Fox’s weaver is endemic to Uganda. But Uganda can’t be beaten for its accessibility and consequent success rates! With excellent birding guides, highlights include spotting the Yellow-footed Flycatcher at the Royal Mile in Budongo Forest, the Puvel's Illadopsis at Kaniyo Pabidi Forest, Shoebills in Mabamba Wetlands and the Green-breasted Pitta in the rainforest of Kibale National Park. Not forgetting the Guinea-Congo biome bird species found in Semuliki National Park, such as the Congo Serpent Eagle, Long-tailed Hawk and Black-casqued Wattled Hornbill! Bursting with highlights and set to some stunningly diverse sceneries you’re hard pushed to beat a bird watching tour in Uganda!

Journey through savannah plains and ancient tropical rainforests using classic 4x4 Land Cruisers and small jet planes. Our savannah plains are home to the ‘Big 5’ game species that live alongside zebra, giraffe, crocodiles, antelopes and hippos pods. Uganda is home to infamous primate species including the rare mountain gorillas, found only in two other African countries and some of the best chimpanzee tracking in Africa. Home to around half of the species on the African continent, the diversity of birdlife here is truly breathtaking.
