Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park spans the equator line; monuments on either side of the road mark the exact spot where it crosses latitude 00. The park is home to over 95 mammal species and over 600 bird species. Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination.

It has one of the greatest variety and concentration of primates in Africa including our famous cousins the Chimpanzees, Red Colobus Monkeys, Vervet Monkeys, L’Hoest’s, Black-and- White Colobus and the Olive Baboons.

There is also a wide array of unique birds, forest elephants (smaller and hairier than the more familiar savannah elephant) and much more.


Murchison Falls National Park

is the largest protected area in Uganda. The waterfall for which the park is named is the most electrifying sight of its type in East Africa. The southern part of the park is mostly covered by dense woodlands and harbors, some of the most varied forest faunas in East Africa, and a premier site for bird watchers. It is one of the best- and most affordable - places to track our second cousins, the chimpanzees. The northern part is mostly covered by green grasslands with scattered acacia trees, borassus palms and riverine woodlands. The world’s longest river, the Nile, runs through the park and is thronged with hippos, crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes. Wildlife in th park includes lions, Leopards, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, hartebeests, oribis, the Ugandan kob and so much more.


Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

The forest itself, dating back to the  ice ages, is one of Uganda's oldest and ecologically most diverse with almost 400 species of plants, 350 species of birds including 23 Albertine Rift endemics as well as 120 mammals species including lots of smaller ones like rodents and bats but also the Gorillas, Baboons, Chimpanzees, Elephants and Antelopes.


Kidepo Valley National Park

Kidepo Valley National Park ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. From Apoka, in the heart of the national park, a savanna landscape extends in all directions, far beyond the gazetted area of 1442km2, towards horizons outlined by distant mountain ranges. The park contains two rivers – Kidepo and Narus – which disappear in the dry season, leaving just pools for the wildlife. The local communities around the park include pastoral Karamojong people, similar to the Maasai of Kenya, and the IK, a hunter-gatherer tribe whose survival is threatened.

Lake Mburo National Park

is known as the 'Home for Zebras'. The park's well developed Acacia woodland harbors a number of wildlife species and it is the best place in the country to see the gigantic eland antelope, as well as topi, impala and several acacia-associated birds. Lake Mburo is the largest of the five lakes found in the park, which together attract hippos, crocodiles and a variety of water birds, while the swamps hide sitatunga antelope.

Sheltering largest counts of Impala, Burchell’s Zebra and Eland antelope, Lake Mburo National Park presents good wild game viewing possibilities especially with its arrangement of game walking safaris which allows one to explore wild game on foot. Taking a community walk,horse riding safari,  listening to traditional stories, attending to the local performances and immersing in an experiential touch of the cattle keeping experience will generate lasting memories of a safari in Uganda.
