Uganda is a fantastic destination for gorilla safari tours and adventure holidays, particularly due to its rich biodiversity and stunning landscapes. The country is home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, making it a prime location for gorilla trekking. Here are some of the best Uganda gorilla safari tours and adventure holidays.
As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, Uganda is a popular destination for safaris and wildlife tourism, but “Fly-In Safaris” may not have been a widely known term or concept back then. However, I can certainly provide you with some information about potential destinations and national parks in Uganda that you could consider for fly-in safaris. Keep in mind that availability and options may have changed since then, so I recommend checking with travel agencies or local sources for the most up-to-date information.
If your dream is mountain gorilla trekking, Uganda is the place to go. Rwanda is the only other country in which these gentle giants can be encountered on a trek, and Ugandan permits are a fraction of the price charged over the border. Apart from gorilla trekking, there are lots of other things to do in Uganda. The country is home to many primates and Kibale NP offers amazing chimpanzee trekking and habituation experiences. Kidepo Valley, Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks are great for game drives in a savannah environment with plenty of lion, buffalo and elephant, as well as a range of antelope species. The country is particularly scenic and has a lot to offer to people with a keen interest in natural history and those who enjoy active holidays.
Rwanda is famous for its gorilla trekking opportunities in the Virunga Mountains. This is where Dian Fossey researched and habituated mountain gorillas in the 1960s. Although gorilla trekking is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the country has a lot more to offer. In fact, if gorilla trekking is beyond your budget, Rwanda is still worth visiting as an up-and-coming destination offering primate walks, volcano hikes and bird watching in Volcanoes National Park and Nyungwe National Park, plus boat trips on Lake Kivu in the Rift Valley and classic safaris in search of the Big Five in low-key Akagera National Park.
