 We offer two of the most popular safari options in Uganda. 

1. MURCHISON FALLS - 3 days/2 nights 

Murchison Falls National park, is Uganda’s largest national park also featuring the most powerful waterfall which is over seven metres wide and approximately 43 metres high. Visits to the area offer boat cruises to the bottom of the falls. This has been ranked among the top attractions and most exciting adventure in east Africa, with great views of the hippos, elephants and birds on the banks.
A game drive is a fantastic way to see and photograph the wide range of animals in the Nile Valley. You will marvel at herds of buffalos, dozens of elephants, warthogs and towering giraffes, along with bushbucks, reedbuck, duikers, kobs, oribi and the unusual-looking hartebeest. Your park guide will have a good idea where the lions are hiding, and you may even spot a leopard at dusk!

2. BWINDI GORILLA TREKKING - 4 days/3nights 
Bwindi Impenetrable forest is one of Uganda’s pristine forests that protect a wealth of wildlife including half of the world’s population of the mountain gorillas.Gorilla trekking in Bwindi is renowned as one of the most thrilling adventures in the world. There are a number of habituated gorilla groups; Nkuringo, Nshongi, Mushaya, Buhoma, Habinyanja, Rushegura, Mubare groups. All these groups take only 8 people per day , as this helps to prevent congestion while tracking. 
Once a habituated gorilla family has been located by your park guides, you can settle down for an hour to observe them as they feed and groom while their babies tumble about the undergrowth - all under the watchful gaze of the great silverback male. Sitting only a few metres from a gorilla and looking into its soft brown eyes is a spine-tingling experience not easily forgotten.  
For a gorilla safari you need to be fairly fit and equipped for the humid, muddy conditions of a rainforest hike with steep slopes and tangled vegetation. Nevertheless, the chances of finding a gorilla family are often around 95%.

Day 1 - Kampala to Bwindi - overnight at Rushaga Gorilla Camp built on 6 acres of land bordering Bwindi. 
Its location on a mountain slope guarantees nice vistas of the national park and of a spring where elephants 
 occasionally come down for a drink.
Day 2 - Gorilla Trek - overnight in Bunyonyi Overland Resort
Day 3 - Boat Ride and Nature Trails Lake Bunyonyi (gentle fitness level) overnight in Bunyonyi Overland Resort
