Tour Details

8 DAYS UGANDA GORILLA SAFARI

Overview;

The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a biodiverse, mountainous area in southwest Uganda. Its home to many of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, who feed on roots, leaves and fruits from the park’s many tree and fern species. Restricted numbers of viewing permits help protect the endangered gorilla families. In the park, rough paths weave amid dense forests, which are home to many butterflies and birds.

Lake Mburo National Park is the closet national park compared to all the national parks in Uganda. The park has a variety of animals such as zebras, impala, buffaloes, hippos and crocodiles, and for the birding enthusiasts, this is close to paradise. And over three hundred (300) bird species. 

The Ssese Islands are an archipelago of eighty-four islands in the northwestern part of Lake Victoria in Uganda. The islands are coterminous with the Kalangala District in southern Central Uganda, which does not have any territory on mainland Uganda
