Ssamba Safaris’ tour consultants have selected out the best places to visit in Uganda that are are worth your money and time. Uganda is, for the most part, a safe and enthralling place. It’s a land where hippos humph through the wetlands and lions laze in the acacias. It’s a land of rain-stained forests and misty hills that house chimpanzees. It’s got the lapping waters of Lake Victoria, and the winding channels of the Victoria Nile to boot. Vistas of rock-ribbed mountains and standalone volcanoes conquer the peripheries, shooting up to craggy summits where waterfalls and thunderstorms coalesce. Meanwhile, Kampala is a pulsating city, steeped in tribal ancestry and life. It’s an all-round top African adventure
The dense, tangled jungle of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest support some of the last remaining wild mountain gorillas on Earth. But there are other places to go in Uganda where you can see even more wildlife. You can follow pathways deep into Kibale Forest National Park to encounter chimpanzees, blue monkeys and grey-cheeked mangabeys in their natural habitat. Take a game drive through Queen Elizabeth National Park for a chance to see lion sleeping in fig trees and hippo wading in the Ishasha River. Or venture into Murchison Falls National Park and watch as the Nile surges through a narrow gorge, the force of the frothing water creating plumes of mist.
