Safaris in Uganda

As Bwindi Forest permits are issued for specific gorilla groups, it's strongly recommended to book as far in advance as possible, to avoid disappointment.

A wildlife safari in Uganda is an unforgettable experience.

Although applying for a Bwindi Forest gorilla permit may be a pain, safari travellers in Uganda are generally a rare breed; compared to those going on safari in Kenya.

Visitors to Uganda can choose from an exciting range of tour packages including adventure safaris, luxury lodge safaris, hiking and mountain climbing, gorilla trekking, combined Ugandan safari and gorilla trekking, big catch fishing.

Uganda cultural tours can include visits to local villages and a meeting with the Batwa pygmies, just outside the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National.
