Uganda’s natural beauty led Winston Churchill to refer to her as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, and this wonderful nickname has stuck. The habitat in Uganda is diverse and boasts a mixture of forests, lakes, plains and mountains. Uganda is famous for its primate species, including the chimpanzee and the over half of the endangered mountain gorilla left in the world at Bwindi. The country has amazing biological diversity with over 1000 bird species, over 80 species of small mammals, amphibians and reptiles, many of them endemic to Uganda. For example, the Uganda Kob, an antelope similar to the impala, is only found in Uganda and parts of the Congo.
With New Horizon Tours and our Abercrombie & Kent Uganda team as ground partners, we will show you that Winston Churchill was not wrong, that Uganda really is a pearl well worth exploring.
This itinerary encapsulates all that makes Uganda amazing. We start with a visit to the Kibale Forest where canopy reverberates to the deep bass of the chimpanzees as they chase each other through the trees. On to Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda’s largest, and home to the tree climbing lions of Ishasha. At the end of the safari we visit the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, probably the best name for any national park, for a chance to see the endangered mountain gorillas. Nothing can compare to seeing these wonderful “cousins” in their own habitat as they feed and care for each other. A true highlight to end our safari.
