Uganda Safaris: What to see?

Uganda is called ‘The Pearl of Africa’ that nature gifts the third country in East Africa.

Uganda safari is interchangeable with gorilla trekking tours. This is because mountain gorillas in the wild will be found in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda. Uganda boasts of the mountain gorilla population in the wild. It would be useful to understand that there’s been in the populace of the apes.

Uganda has several Parks that include Queen Elizabeth National Park Murchison Falls National Park. These are the places to see four of the ‘Big Five’ which comprises the Buffalo, the elephant, the elusive Leopard and the Lions. You may not have the ability to find the Rhino as they had been removed during the period in the parks. You’ll have to visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, if you’re interested in rhinos in Uganda. Additionally, there are the Zebras Hippos among carnivores and herbivores.

Uganda boasts of over 13 species aside from the mountain Gorillas. This includes the Chimpanzees the white and black Colobus Monkeys. This is one of the primate population in Africa but in The world. Kibale Forest National Park Kaniyo Pabidi of Murchison Falls National Park and Queen Elizabeth National park in Budongo south are some of the best places to enjoy tracking safaris. You can track Ngamba Island of Lake Victoria for chimpanzees.

With the remnant of forest, Uganda is one of the major birding destination of Africa. Some bird species include the archaic looking shoe bill.

Uganda has two mountains that are Mount Ruwenzori Called the ‘Mountain of the Moon’ and Mount Elgon. An individual can climb Uganda’s highest peak in between 7 to 12 days based on his/her fitness. Unlike Mount Kilimanjaro, you’ll require some degree of fitness to go up Mt. Rwenzori with several up and downs because it is a block mountain. Since it is a mountain, Mount Elgon is easier to climb.

Uganda shares the largest fresh water lake in the world with the two East Africa neighbours which are Uganda and Kenya. Lake Victoria is a fantastic place to go fishing and boasts of some of the Nile perch species on earth. Places to fish include the Albertine Nile in Murchison Falls National Park and in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Kazinga Channel.

White water rafting in the Nile is one thing if you’re currently looking for adventure activity.

This may be done in Jinja for full day or half a day depending on what you’re up to. White water rafting can be combined jumping which is done in Jinja. Lunch will be included by the complete day white water rafting.

Uganda is home to ethnic groups that contains the Nilotes and the Bantus. Each grouping has its own tradition and culture. From their dressing to activities some of the cultures are attractive. You visit the region where the group stay or can sample this at the Ndere centre. Some cultural places to go to Incorporate the Batoro Kingdom among others, the Kabaka Kingdom. This will allow you to understand each group you’re interested in. There are a lot of activities to do in Uganda, and most are adventurous trips. Before I went to Uganda and explored the beautiful country, I checked out my Chiropractor NYC doctor to ask if I am fit for travelling and doing wild adventurous. Good thing I was allowed, and I was able to experience Uganda fully. So, the next time you plan an Africa safari know that you have to spice up your Uganda experience and not just settle on Uganda gorilla trekking safari. Go and enjoy yourself.
