Uganda is a destination ripe with adventure-from gorilla trekking in Bwindi Forest National Park; watching Golden Monkeys jump from branch to branch in the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park; to viewing stunning cascades at Sipi Falls or Murchinson Falls. The tour company, Gorilla Safari Consultants is a great way to experience a range of safaris in Uganda, from primate trekking; chimpanzee tracking; to birdwatching endemic species. Here are 7 of the best places to safari in Uganda:
- Bwindi Forest National Park
Located in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley, the 25,000+ year old rainforest has over 400 known species of flora. However, most visitors come for a chance to see around half of the world’s population of the endangered Silverback Mountain Gorillas. There are around 400 gorillas that are known to roam the forest. If you thought the gorilla wildlife was stunning, then you would be even more surprised to come across some of the other 120 mammals at Bwindi Forest National Park: baboons, chimpanzees, elephants or antelopes.
