WHY VISIT UGANDA
Mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, white rhino, Rothschild’s giraffes, shoebill storks… for a small country, Uganda more than punches above its weight when it comes to phenomenal wildlife experiences. The main attraction is, of course, seeing endangered mountain gorillas families in their natural habitats in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Mgahinga National Park and even parts of the Rwenzori Mountains, a fantastical landscape of waterfalls, lakes and glaciers. Trekking can be tough going if the gorillas are on the move as Uganda has steep trails but the long mid-year dry season makes conditions much easier. The Ugandan government’s commitment to preserving these majestic primates means that 75 percent of your permit fee goes to conservation and 10 percent to the immediate community.
