Safari holidays is synonymous within the Africa region. When safari is mentioned, it conjures images of the African wilderness, wildlife watching and experiencing the hospitality of the locals. A safari is meant to leave a memorable and lasting experience hence planning is a very important undertaking.
A safari trip to Uganda would not be complete without seeing the Gorillas, Chimpanzees and the African big five (while birding, a chance you may encounter them at a free cost but we can’t guarantee them). It would definitely be one of the highlights of your trip.

Uganda and Rwanda are the only two places to see the mountain gorillas in Africa, actually Uganda has more than half of the remaining world’s mountain gorilla population. That means everyone would be clamoring to watch these wild animals and these tours tend to get booked pretty fast. To get a good moment with the gorilla, make sure to book as early as possible.
Choose a good camera and a pair of binoculars, for a birder may carry along a spotting scope. Don't forget to take plenty of extra memory cards and batteries. This adventure is not just for your eyes to see but also for your memories to remember. Bring your camera along to capture some of the stunning. Every sight is a picture-worthy moment, so be sure to document it.
