Uncharted Uganda! This mystical country offers some of the finest Uncharted adventures, ranging from gorilla and chimpanzee trekking to daredevil whitewater rafting on the upper reaches of the Nile to tropical mountaineering in the Ruwenzori Mountains. The smiling people of Uganda are incredibly friendly and pride themselves on being one of the most hospitable nations in Africa. Every guide, host, and tracker will make your journey here one of the most memorable trips of your life!


Tueen Elizabeth National Park is a bird lovers paradise and is also home troupes of cheeky baboons, herds of local kob deer, massive elephants and grumpy buffalo but the animal we are always on the prowl for are the tree-climbing lions!

Experience the magic of Murchison Falls National Park, where the water explodes out of a narrow gorge. One of Uganda's oldest and largest conservation areas, Murchison Falls is located at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley. Famous visitors included Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway (who crashed his plane there), European royalty, and in 1951, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, and the actors and crew of The African Queen. This region offers some of Uganda's best wildlife safaris, with elephant, giraffe buffalo, hippopotamus, and Nile crocodile.

Uganda Gorilla Treks

There are only 600 mountain gorillas left in the world, half of them in Uganda's Great Impenetrable Forest. The mountain gorilla’s live in four parks in Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC. In Uganda they are seen in Bwindi National Park and Mgahinga National Park. Bwindi has four habituated families with 32 permits available daily. The gorillas live in thick tropical forest and tracking in Uganda safaris is more challenging as the hillsides are steeper and it can take 3-10 hours. Three of the gorilla families are accessed from Buhoma in the north by guests staying at Bwindi Lodge. Gorilla trekking is not for the faint of heart, it can often be arduous. Spending time with these massive giants in close proximity is incredible and worth every minute it takes to get there!

Chimpanzee Trekking

The puffing-tootlng call of the chimpanzee is the signature sound of the African jungle. Our closest relative can be visited at several locations throughout Uganda, including Kibale Forest, Budongo Forest and Queen Elizabeth National Park. In all three areas the chimps interest in their human cousins often makes for side splitting antics and a day of hilarious chimp interactions. These chimps have been habituated for tourism, meaning that they won't flee at the first sign of people.

Adrenaline pumping Adventures

Raft the white waters of one of the Nile’s sources - Lake Victoria. Near Jinja, where the Nile discharges out of Lake Victoria. In the last decade this river has become one of Africa's premiere white-water rafting destinations. Adding to the adrenaline rush are kayaking, mountain biking, river boarding and bungee jumping. One and two-day whitewater rafting trips alternate between lazy sections of river good for relaxing and bird watching, and heart-pounding grade 4 and 5 rapids that leave everyone drenched yet euphoric.

Ascending the Ruwenzori Mountains.s

The Ruwenzori mountains of western Uganda are also known as the Mountains of the Moon. They offer up some of the most challenging mountain trekking in the world. This is one of the HARDEST CLIMBS in East Africa and makes climbing Kilimanjaro look like a breeze! It is wet, boggy, swampy and terribly slippery. If this doesn’t deter you the reward of complete solitude and amazing wild and birdlife will leave you breathless!
