From the beginning to the end Uganda will have you in awe!
The “Pearl of Africa’ offers vibrant colours, amazing food and welcoming folk. Uganda is a tapestry of landscapes from mountain ranges, to swamps, coffee plantations and grass plains.
The tour starts and ends in Entebbe on the shores of Lake Victoria. An early arrival allows for birding at the Entebbe Botanical Gardens. The next day proceeds to find the most iconic bird of this trip the Shoebill. We spend the morning in the Mabamba Wetlands before proceeding to Lake Mburo National Park.
The tour continues to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi National Park, located in southwestern Uganda, on the eastern edge of the Albertine Rift Valley, covers an area of 33,000 hectares and is one of the largest areas in East Africa which still has Afromontane lowland forest extending to well within the montane forest belt. It is a biodiversity hotspot with possibly the greatest number of tree species for its altitude in East Africa, with over 200 species, 12 being known only from this forest, some 120 species of shrubs, more than 104 species of ferns and more than 1,000 flowering plants. It also hosts a rich diversity of fauna including a number of endemic butterflies, birds, reptiles and one of the richest mammalian assemblages in Africa.
We continue to travel north to the Queen Elizabeth National Park and Kibale Forest for some of the unique Guinea-Congo biome species and to Murchison Falls National Park for more savanna residents.
We will cover a multitude of habitats from lush rainforest, to wild savannas, to wetlands and swamps. The scenery is varied and arguably some of the finest in all of Africa.
