Safaris to Uganda are entirely about the African wilderness. When considering safaris, there are a lot of features that make Uganda one of the most preferred destinations in Africa and the whole world. Very few of them are highlighted in this blog post.
Pearl of Africa
Uganda often referred to as the ‘pearl of Africa,’ is a land rich in wildlife and one of the countries that harbour big five game animals. Uganda has the world’s most glorious landscapes and distinct geography, offering a stunning mix of distinctive and inspiring habitats that you can explore on tours. You have Lake Bunyonyi, Ssese Island, Sipi Falls, and serene heaving hills of orderly tea plantations to admire. These varying landscapes of Uganda are not just scenic but breathe taking.
Home To Mountain Gorillas
The primary and most iconic attractions of Africa, mountain gorillas, and gorilla trekking are all housed in Uganda. If you are looking to have the closest encounter with one of the rarest animals on earth, Bwindi Impenetrable Rainforest in Uganda is the place to be. This World Heritage site lies in the southwest of Uganda, featuring a treasure trove of biodiversity.
Trekking through these dense pockets of the forest on your safari to Uganda, you can observe mountain gorillas living in their natural habitat.
Source Of Nile
River Nile, the longest river in the world with its source, is starting from Jinja Uganda. River Nile originates from the Northeastern part of Africa and flows from the neighbouring areas close to the equator line to the vast safari desert and then straight to the eastern side of the Mediterranean Sea. Due to this, many birds migrate to Uganda in different seasons, making it the best birding safari in the world.
Rich In Flora And Fauna
Uganda is ranked among the top ten bio-diverse countries in the world, and therefore, it is known for its rich flora and fauna. Ugandan landscapes offer a diverse flora ranging from the Savannah of East Africa to the rainforest of Central Africa. The beauty of this country and the wildlife scene it depicts is simply to die for.
