The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa, bordered by Kenya, South Sudan, Tanzania, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Although lacking a sea or ocean coastline, the over 90, 000 square miles of Uganda lies almost completely within the Nile basin and holds a substantial portion of the expansive Lake Victoria within its border, as well as several other large lakes.

The climate is varied as is the geography, consisting of volcanic hills, mountains, and lakes, with an average elevation of 2900 feet above sea level. Uganda is home to a vast number of species, including a population of the endangered mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. In addition to Bwindi, there are nine other national parks and a total of 60 protected areas.

Uganda has plenty to offer as a single destination or Lakani can include it with Kenya and/or Tanzania. It is one of only three countries with access to the rare mountain gorillas. Fly to the international airport of Entebbe and connect to a local flight to Kihihi airstrip where you will be met and transferred to your accommodations. The gorilla tracking permits are issued in advance and are limited as only eight visitors are allowed to view a gorilla family per day. There will be a briefing before you set out on your guided mountain trek. The adult male gorillas are called Silverbacks because of the silver hair on their backs. It is a truly exhilarating experience to spend an hour with these endearing primates – who share about 98% of our DNA.

Uganda Highlights Include:

  • Two days of mountain gorilla tracking with experienced naturalist guide
  • Visit to indigenous Batwa village and learn about their traditional lifestyle
  • See golden monkeys of Bwindi
  • Spot Tree Climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park
  • Track chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park
  • Take a safari in Murchison Falls National Park to view hippos, elephants, giraffes, and lions

Best Time to Visit



Spend two or three nights at Bwindi and then return to Entebbe for your onward destination – or stay longer in Uganda and visit Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you can usually spot the unique Tree Climbing lions and perhaps even the rare Ugandan kob. Continue to Kibale National Park known for its 13 species of primates, as well as leopard, African golden cat, serval, and elephants who travel the wildlife corridor between Kibale Forest and Queen Elizabeth NP. Track chimpanzees, take a birding hike or visit local villages on a cultural trail. For a different experience travel north to Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda’s largest national park, where you encounter hippos, lions, and the endangered Rothchild’s giraffes.

We will create a custom itinerary based on your travel dates and preferences.



Hotel accommodations will be based on your specific travel program, dates, budget and availability at time of booking.
