BWINDI & UGANDA GORILLA TREKKING TOUR: For all Uganda travellers in search to come close to face to face with one of the African big7, the Uganda gorilla trekking tour had to be top on the list because it is the most popular activity in Uganda by most visitors who travel to Uganda for the Uganda safari tour

As we stated in the introduction, Uganda has the biggest % of mountain gorillas in its two national parks – Bwindi and Mgahinga. Mountain gorillas are endangered but their numbers have grown to slightly above 1000 in the last decade. Bwindi national park has 17 habituated Gorilla groups which are open to tourism while Mgahinga has one large Gorilla trekking group that is open to Ugandan visitors for amazing Uganda gorilla trekking tours and Uganda gorilla trekking tours. Gorilla trekking in Bwindi’s impenetrable national park is so special for many Uganda travellers because it is the only Uganda national park where Uganda visitors can also choose for the Uganda gorilla habituation experience. Uganda’s Gorilla habituation experience is different from the Uganda gorilla trekking tour in that it involves spending more time with the primates in the forest.  Please note, if you are looking for the Uganda gorilla trekking tour or Uganda gorilla trekking safari tour and you are interested in Uganda gorilla habituation experience, you will need to specify that to us as you book your Uganda gorilla tour because the Uganda gorilla habituation experience is more expensive but participants get to move with researchers and learn more about the primates and also need more days in the forest. You can reach Mgahinga & Bwindi national parks by road and one has to be patient enough to endure long hours of the drive of about 5-8 hours by road (450km from Kampala), however, the journey for the Uganda gorilla trekking tour is never boring to all the nature lovers on the Uganda safari tour because the journey will reward you with the beautiful scenery, amazing landscapes, lush green forests cover, water bodies, mountains and valleys seen along the way in Kabale and that is why the area is referred to as “the Switzerland of Africa”.

Uganda Sport Fishing: Are you planning to visit Uganda for the Uganda safari, Uganda wildlife safaris, Uganda tour, Uganda tours, Uganda gorilla trekking tour, Uganda gorilla trekking safari tour, Uganda wildlife adventure, Uganda wildlife life tour, Uganda wildlife life safari, Uganda cultural tour and best of Uganda wildlife & gorilla trekking tours, Uganda bird-watching Tour, Uganda bird-watching safari, Entebbe one-day Tour, Uganda Birding Tour in Entebbe, Uganda safari, Mabamba shoebill Tour or birding safari in Uganda and wondering if angling is possible, then you don’t need to be worried. One-third of the country is covered in water and this is enough to show that Uganda is a fishing country. The Nile perch is Uganda’s largest and most sought fish by anglers. The Nile Perch can weigh over 100 kilograms. The average big catches weigh 60 Kilograms. Although most of the Nile Perch is found in Lake Victoria, the best place to catch them is along the river Nile in Jinja and the Murchison Falls National Park. The other major species in Uganda include Tilapia, Cats Fish and Mud Fish to mention but a few. Spot fishing tour in Uganda is still not developed to their full potential but there is a lot of potentials as the economy of the country grows; please always seek advice from our Uganda travel advisors before booking the Uganda safari tour, Uganda tour, Uganda safari or Uganda wildlife safari tour so that they can include it in your Uganda tour package

White Rhino Tracking Tour at Ziwa Sanctuary: Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is located just a few kilometres before reaching the Murchison Falls National Park on the way to Gulu. Ziwa rhino sanctuary was established by wildlife conservation Agencies to protect Uganda’s last remaining White Rhinos. Uganda once had over 1,000 White and black Rhinos roaming freely in the Ugandan national parks but extensive poaching wiped them out. There are no more Rhinos in the national parks and the only place to see them is at the Ziwa rhino sanctuary in Nakasongola and in Entebbe at the Uganda wildlife education centre (zoo), and you can book 3 day Murchison falls national park tour or one day Entebbe walking tour to see the rhinos. About 20 individuals are currently being protected in the Ziwa Sanctuary. Visitors to the sanctuary have an opportunity to tour the facility under the guidance of Rangers and Researchers. The area has remarkable scenery and wildlife which you need to look out for when on the Uganda safari, Uganda wildlife safaris, Uganda tour, Uganda tours, Uganda gorilla trekking tour, Uganda gorilla trekking safari tour, Uganda wildlife adventure, Uganda wildlife life tour, Uganda wildlife life safari, Uganda cultural tour and best of Uganda wildlife & gorilla trekking tours, Uganda bird-watching Tour, Uganda bird-watching safari, Entebbe one-day Tour, Uganda Birding Tour in Entebbe, Uganda safari, Mabamba shoebill Tour or birding safari in Uganda.

An ambitious breeding programme to increase the number of Rhinos and releases them back into a few national parks is underway. Visit this sanctuary if you want to see Rhinos or learn more about their conservation.

QUEEN ELIZABETH NATIONAL PARK TOUR & TREE CLIMBING LION: Uganda is the best place to see tree Climbing Lions on Earth. These rare cats are found in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park. A few tree-climbing lions are also found in Lake Manyara in Kenya and South Africa. The tree-climbing lions of ishasha in Queen Elizabeth national park are many and the chances of seeing them are higher than anywhere else in the world. Queen Elizabeth also offers another exciting opportunity – The chance to track lions in the Kasenyi sector with experienced Researchers. Lion tracking in Queen Elizabeth national park involves the use of GPS. A sensor is inserted into a collar which is then put around the lioness (after using a tranquillizer). The lion tracking experience is very different from that offered during game drives. During Uganda Wildlife game drives, vehicles are not allowed to drive away from the main park roads. Tourists are also not allowed to get too close to the lions. With lion tracking, participants can be driven deeper into the park and away from the park roads as they follow the lions. Participants in the lion tracking experience may be requested to help in collecting samples from the lions after using a tranquillizer.

THE UGANDA EQUATOR TOUR: The main equator crossing in Kayabwe along Masaka road is one of the most visited landmarks in Uganda by Uganda travellers on Uganda Tours, Uganda Safari, Uganda gorilla trekking safari and Uganda Wildlife safari tours.  This is so because the equator is located along a major route used by most if not every tourist visiting Uganda’s main national parks. All Ugandan tourists visiting Bwindi, Mgahinga, Queen Elizabeth, Mount Rwenzori, Lake Mburo and Kibale National Park make stopovers to take photos and have lunch at the equator. What is the Equator anyway? An equator line marks the point where the earth’s south and northern hemispheres are separated. In other words, the equator line divides the world into two. There are other marks to show the equator line in other parts of Uganda but not as visited as the one in Kayabwe. In Kayabwe there are souvenir or craft shops where tourists can buy souvenirs. The best part is taking photos with two legs in different parts of the earth’s hemisphere to show your friends and other relations back home. This an experience you can get to enjoy when on the Uganda safari, Uganda gorilla tour and Uganda wildlife safari with   Nungi safaris

KAMPALA CITY TOUR: Kampala is Uganda’s biggest city at the moment with over 3 million people. Kampala is the best place to experience everything good and maybe bad about the country Uganda. One good thing for sure is that the people are genuinely friendly. Kampala is also relatively calmer and safer than Nairobi in Kenya but that will not stop a few crooks from taking your phone on the street on a bad day. There are several things to do while in Kampala that anyone travelling to Uganda for Uganda Safari, Uganda Tour or Uganda holiday tour would struggle to make a selection. Kampala City has a large expert community working with international governmental and non-governmental organizations. The modern bars, shopping malls and restaurants are where international experts love to hang out. You can read more about the top attractions in Kampala for specifics. Kampala also has several markets, cathedrals, temples and art galleries. If you are planning to visit cultural sites in Uganda, you shouldn’t forget to visit the Uganda National Museum which we will discuss later in detail. The art galleries and crafts in Kampala display the work of Uganda’s best artists in form of photographs, sculptures and paintings and handmade crafts. Please book our one-day Kampala city tour

Visit The Uganda Martyrs Shrine And Cathedrals: Are you a missionary traveller to Uganda and you might want to check out Uganda’s famous and historical cathedrals? Well, book our one-day Kampala City Tour. Among the places you will visit is the Rubaga Cathedral, which is Uganda’s most important Roman Catholic cathedral. It was built in 1914 on one of Kampala’s most prominent hills. This is where the most influential catholic Priests and Bishops sit. A guided tour can be arranged to see the beautiful interior and impressive artefacts. You could also visit the tomb of the first African Catholic Bishop and other clerics at the church cemetery.  For those of the Anglican faith/Church of Uganda, the Namirembe Cathedral is the place to go. This Cathedral was built in 1919 and is where the top offices of the Anglican Church are located. For the ultimate Uganda Mission Trip, you should visit the two Uganda Martyrs Shrines in Namugongo. These shrines mark the spot where over 20 young Christians were executed on the orders of Kabaka (King) Mwanga of Buganda in 1886. The King had asked them to denounce their new Christian faith but they refused and chose to die. Therefore you can always visit those places if you are on a mission trip to Uganda and our one-day Kampala city tour will be a good match

Ugandan Local Food Tasting & Tour: Like it’s done everywhere else around the globe, whenever one visits a new country, the first thing that should come to mind tastes local food. A trip to Uganda will expose you to a variety of tasty local dishes and cuisine that you need to taste when you travel to Uganda. Since Uganda has over 64 different tribes, that means each tribe has its local dish which you get to taste during when Uganda cultural tour and Uganda’s local food tasting tour. Fish is always on the menu in every country and Uganda is no exception. My favourite cuisine is smoked fish mixed with peanut/groundnut sauce and taken with millet bread. The Baganda loves matoke (bananas) and peanut sauce. This dish is very popular among many Uganda visitors who come to Uganda for the amazing Uganda safari tour and Uganda tours. Other local dishes to taste when you visit Uganda include yams, pork, chicken, potatoes, vegetable and sorghum. The hotels also include most of the known international cuisines for less experimental visitors. Since we are talking food, Uganda has got the sweetest and the freshest fruits in the world; while on the Uganda safari tour or Uganda wildlife safari tour, you will find women and children selling fresh fruits from the garden. Your guide will always stop and you buy and have a taste of fresh pineapple. Before I forget, in Uganda we eat a ROLEX but don’t wear it. Would want to taste it?

Ugandan Local Markets Tour: There is no better way to learn about the culture of a new place or people than to visit the busiest local markets. Markets offer a true picture of the kind of life everyday people live and what their values are. You might even get to hear about the latest political or social gossip. Each town in Uganda has a large market where most of the folks got to do home shopping or sell their merchandise. In Kampala, the best three markets are Owino, Nakasero and Nakawa. Owino market is famous for its chaotic stalls but has recently been renovated with shops in storied buildings. You can find almost anything on sale in the Owino market. They have the trendiest second-hand (almost new) clothes and shoes. You can find the very best brands. How they reach all the way here is a mystery. Just as you leave the cloth store, you will encounter a shop selling traditional herbs/medicine for all kinds of medical issues. Nakasero is a smaller market specializing in foodstuffs, vegetables, fruits and electronics. It is more organized than Owino Market perhaps because it is located in the city centre. As chaotic as it is, Owino Market is highly recommended to have a taste of Kampala’s chaotic life. Make sure you keep your wallet or handbag safe. The market has some of the city’s sharpest pickpockets. Are you travelling to Uganda for the Uganda safari or Uganda tour, well it’s wise to book our one-day Kampala city tour and get to explore more about what Kampala as a city has to offer.

Ssezibwa Falls Tour: This is also one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Uganda that you need to look out for when on the Uganda safari, Uganda wildlife safari, Uganda tour, Uganda tours, Uganda gorilla trekking tour, Uganda gorilla trekking safari tour, Uganda wildlife adventure, Uganda wildlife life tour, Uganda wildlife life safari, Uganda cultural tour and best of Uganda wildlife & gorilla trekking tours, Uganda bird-watching Tour, Uganda bird-watching safari, Entebbe one-day Tour, Uganda Birding Tour in Entebbe, Uganda safari, Mabamba shoebill Tour or birding safari in Uganda. The Ssezibwa Falls are found in the district of Mukono. They are close to Kampala and it takes about 45 minutes of driving to get there. Most tourists pay a visit to the place on their way to Jinja, Mount Elgon or visit Sipi Falls. The Baganda hold the falls in high esteem. It is believed that hundreds of years ago, a woman gave birth to twins (in form of water). One of the twins became River Ssezibwa. People from all walks of life go to a shrine close to the falls to seek blessings and favour from the river gods. The Kabakas (Kings) of Buganda also visit the falls to show respect to the gods. Tourists in Uganda for a short time can enjoy bird-watching tours, primates viewing, camping or playing games from the beautiful gardens.

LAKE VICTORIA TOUR: In Lake Victoria, Uganda has the largest freshwater lake in the world. Lake Victoria is shared by Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya. Lake Victoria is where the river Nile starts its journey to Egypt. Lake Victoria is home to over 198 species of fish and 355 birds. The dominant fish species is the Nile Perch. This is one of Africa’s largest fish and should be top of the list if you planning to do spot fishing in Uganda while on the Uganda Tour, Uganda Safari, Uganda gorilla tour or Uganda gorilla trekking tour, you can always add Uganda spot fishing. Lake Victoria is also home to some of Uganda’s best hotels and lodges. From these hotels, you can relax by the beautiful beaches or jump into a boat to visit the amazing Islands. You can visit the section of the lake in Jinja to see the source of the river Nile or go to the Ssese Islands including the Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary which we shall discuss as an attraction of its own later.

Visiting the Ssese Islands on Lake Victoria: The Ssese Islands are a collection of 84 islands within Lake Victoria which can be visited by many Ugandan travellers on the Uganda safari, Uganda wildlife safaris, Uganda tour, Uganda tours, Uganda gorilla trekking tour, Uganda gorilla trekking safari tour, Uganda wildlife adventure, Uganda wildlife life tour, Uganda wildlife life safari, Uganda cultural tour and best of Uganda wildlife & gorilla trekking tours, Uganda bird-watching Tour, Uganda bird-watching safari, Entebbe one-day Tour, Uganda Birding Tour in Entebbe, Uganda safari, Mabamba shoebill Tour or birding safari in Uganda. The most prominent Ssese islands are Ngamba Island, Bugala, Bukasa Island and Banda Island. Most of the Ssese islands still retain their natural beauty with the pristine wilderness that allows primates and other creatures to thrive for example you can book this day Ngamba island chimpanzee trekking tour if you are staying in Entebbe for a short time however if you are in Uganda for more time the best places to track chimpanzee are Kibale national park which is considered the primate capital of Africa. Covering 275 square kilometres, Bugala Island is the most visited and largest of the islands. The main activity was fishing but tourism has caught up fast and could be the leading source of livelihood for the people on the island. On a weekend, the Island is packed with middle-class Ugandans and international tourists who are interested in relaxing and having fun on the beautiful sandy beaches surrounded by beautiful scenery. If you are interested in doing a lot of fun activities like swimming, quad biking, horse riding, island hopping and canoeing, then you should think about visiting these islands for at least 3 days. To get to the island, you need to take a ferry from Nakiwogo to Entebbe. The main Islands like Bugala have a variety of accommodation facilities for both budget and luxury travellers.

Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary Tour: Ngamba Island is one of the Ssese groups of Islands. The Ngamba Island was turned into a sanctuary for rescued chimps by the Jane Goodall Foundation and other partners. The chimps are brought to the sanctuary for rehabilitation but the quality of life given to them makes it near impossible for them to be reintroduced into the wild. Many primate lovers and tourists who are visiting Uganda for a short time flock to the island to see 50 orphaned chimps being fed and taken care of by trained caregivers. After the feeding, they are taken around the facility to learn about conservation activities. Volunteers are also allowed for a longer period under a special arrangement. Apart from the chimps, the Island is a beautiful place to stay in for those who are interested in Uganda bird-watching tours, swimming, nature walks and Kayaking

CHIMPANZEE TREKKING IN KIBALE FOREST NATIONAL PARK: Kibale Forest is located in the western part of Uganda close to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Kibale National Park is considered the primate’s capital of Africa. It is the best place to track chimpanzees in the world. The reason for this is that the chimps are easier to find after only a short time of tracking. Kibale forest national park has over 1,500 individual chimps. 3 communities have been habituated and opened to tourism. Kibale Forest is also one of the few parks where one can go for the chimpanzee habituation experience in Uganda. This activity is slightly more expensive and involves more time with the primates. Visitors are led by experienced researchers to have a comprehensive understanding of wild chimpanzees for a whole day. Apart from chimpanzees, Kibale forest is home to 12 other primates including blue monkeys, colobus monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabeys, baboons, vervet monkeys and pottos. The Uganda Chimpanzee Trekking Tour in Kibale national park begins with a briefing at the Kanyanchu Visitor Center. Visitors are then led out to track the chimps for about 3 hours. Visitors are only allowed one hour with the primates. During this time, they can observe them feed, play, groom, mate and relax. Chimpanzees are more vocal and mobile than gorillas. They spend a lot of time on top of trees and it’s more difficult to catch up with them. You might also be interested in South Sudan Cultural Expeditions

MGAHINGA NATIONAL PARK TOUR & GOLDEN MONKEY TREKKING: Golden monkeys are very cute but endangered primates. They are characterized by their thick golden hair which makes them very attractive. Golden monkeys are thought to be a sub-species of blue monkeys. They are only found in Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Uganda, golden monkeys live in Mgahinga National Park. Uganda and Rwanda are the best places to track golden monkeys. The monkeys love feeding on bamboo shoots on the slopes of Virunga’s volcanoes. They are expert tree climbers and masters of acrobatics. Their greatest fear is the large African eagles which will not hesitate to catch them if they get a chance. Unlike Mountain gorillas whose population is now increasing, that of golden monkeys continues to decline. Visitors can only visit habituated groups and the fees collected are used to protect them. You are free to combine the golden monkey trekking tour with the Uganda gorilla tour or the Uganda gorilla trekking tour in Mgahinga national park
