Uganda the Pearl of Africa, a country with breathtaking natural scenery and a rich mosaic of tribes and cultures.

The Murchison Falls National Park is located at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley and is one of the oldest national parks and the largest protected area in Uganda. The park is divided by the Victoria Nile which races down 80 km of white-water rapids before plunging 40 m over the remnant rift valley wall at Murchison Falls, the center piece of the park. The Falls drain the last of the river's energy, transforming it into a broad, placid stream that flows quietly across the rift valley floor for 55 km to Lake Albert. This stretch of river provides one of Uganda's most memorable wildlife spectacles as elephants, lions, giraffes, buffalos, hippos and crocodiles visit the shores of the Nile to drink and bathe.

The Western part of Uganda is one beautiful wonderland gifted with golden grasslands, green tea plantations, hills with terrace gardens, thick tropical rainforests and a snow peaked Mountain, the Rwenzori. The fabled "Mountains of the Moon" lie along the Congolese boarder with snow-covered equatorial peaks that rise to a height of 5,109 m and lower slopes that are blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. From the foothills of the Rwenzori, Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP) stretches along the shores of Lake Edward to the remote Ishasha River in the South, incorporating a wide of variety of habitats that range from savanna and wetlands to gallery and lowland forest.

The QENP, being populated by many elephant herds, lions, leopards and over 600 different bird species offers a unique biodiversity. The Kazinga Channel, a dominant feature of the national park is home to the largest concentration of hippos and crocodiles, which can be seen on a boat ride alongside with herds of elephant, buffalo and other animals.

As part of QENP the Kibale National Park covers an area of ‚Äč‚Äčover 700km2 and is characterized by its high abundance of flora and within its protected zone is a habitat for various primate species. In addition to chimpanzees one may also observe blue monkeys, L'Hoest monkeys, baboons and mangabeys in their natural environment.

Further South, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest offers an incredible variety of bird species of East Africa and is home to roughly half of the world's mountain gorillas. With experienced guides you may trek and experience these rare animals in their natural surroundings. The proceeds made with trekking permits serve to maintain this habitat and thus help prevent the extinction of the mountain gorillas to.
