Parks & Attractions in Uganda

discover the best parks & attractions in uganda

Searching for the mountain gorillas in Bwindi and Mgahinga National Parks is a huge motivation for visitors to Uganda and you can also track habituated chimpanzees in Kibali. However, some of her other attractions include more traditional African safari experiences, such as the mighty Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Park, where if you are lucky you will see other incredible fauna such as elephants, giraffe and possibly lion and leopard. Here you can find detailed information on each of the key areas we will take you to as part of your exciting Uganda safari, but our experts are also at hand to fully personalise your experience.

Uganda may be lesser known than some of its more ubiquitous neighbours when it comes to safaris, but this provides a great deal of authenticity across its attractions and smaller crowds.
