Uganda, often hailed as the “Pearl of Africa,” is a land of unparalleled natural beauty, captivating landscapes, and warm, welcoming people. This East African gem remains a relatively undiscovered wildlife destination, offering a treasure trove of attractions waiting to be explored.

At Trek Africa Expeditions, we craft Uganda Safari Tours tailored to your specific needs, time constraints, and budget.

The landscape transitions seamlessly from rolling hills adorned with tea and sugarcane plantations to untamed jungles and rainforests, serenaded by the melodious symphony of vibrant birdlife. As you explore Uganda, you’ll encounter the majestic River Nile meandering northward like a glistening ribbon through arid semi-desert terrain punctuated by rocky kopjes. Snow-capped mountain peaks, tropical rainforests, sandy freshwater beaches, and the warm smiles of its people all combine to create a sensory feast. This is Africa as it was meant to be experienced.
Nestled in East Africa, Uganda is a nation blessed with mesmerizing natural beauty. Its captivating landscapes include lush vegetation, serene waters, towering mountains, and an abundance of flora and fauna, setting the stage for an unforgettable Uganda Safari. Often referred to as the “Pearl of Africa,” this unique and undiscovered country promises a wealth of diverse experiences.
Uganda Safaris typically lead travelers to its National Parks, such as Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park, Lake Mburo National Park, and Murchison Falls National Park. However, the allure of Uganda extends beyond its natural wonders to include visits to fascinating cultural and traditional sites, historical landmarks, and religious destinations. The nation’s rich tapestry of tribes, each with its distinct culture and traditions, makes Uganda an ideal destination for cultural safaris and tours.
A Uganda Safari offers unparalleled lifetime experiences, and one of its most remarkable highlights is gorilla tracking. With over half of the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas residing here, gorilla tracking expeditions have become the centerpiece of Uganda Safaris. These remarkable adventures unfold in the lush Bwindi Forest National Park and the enchanting Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. They offer not only encounters with these gentle giants but also a rich tapestry of flora, fauna, and an immersive experience with Uganda’s warm and hospitable people.
Exclusive Primate Safaris in Uganda, including Gorilla and Chimpanzee tracking, are conducted in tropical rainforests that experience near-constant rainfall throughout the year. In contrast, the dry savannah National Parks beckon with a wide array of safari activities, such as exhilarating game drives, mesmerizing scenery viewing, prolific birdwatching, and captivating boat safaris, among others.
Uganda stands as the guardian of world icons that beckon exploration. The country cradles Africa’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Victoria, which also serves as the true source of the River Nile, the world’s longest river, stretching over 5,100 miles from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean Sea in North Africa. Lake Victoria, adorned with shimmering islands, offers both adventure and relaxation along its extensive sandy beaches.
For those seeking cultural enlightenment, Uganda proudly hosts Africa’s only Bahá’í Temple in the capital city of Kampala. This architectural marvel stands atop a hill, offering insights into the history and beliefs of the Bahá’í faith.
Uganda is renowned as the home of over 450 Mountain Gorillas, representing more than half of the world’s remaining Mountain Gorilla population. These incredible creatures find sanctuary in the southwestern corners of Uganda, particularly in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
The rugged Rwenzori Mountains, located in the far southwest, offer an exciting adventure for those seeking to challenge their limits. Uganda’s tallest mountain and East Africa’s largest block mountain, the Rwenzori Mountains remain snow-capped throughout the year, despite their equatorial location.
