Uganda is a country that can be found in the middle of eastern Africa. It is landlocked, meaning that you won’t get the same coastal scenery that you will in Zanzibar, but if you’re ready to see something new and have some fun, a Uganda vacation or safari tour is just what you’re looking for.
Every national park offers something new to tourists. Enjoy having the opportunity to see a rare mountain gorilla when you head over to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, an area that is home to one third of the mountain gorillas that are left. Enjoy a guided tour to see this species while going on a gorilla trek.
Then, take a trip over to Queen Elizabeth National Park to watch the leopards climb trees, see a lion up close or spot a buffalo for the first time. After all that excitement, relax by a beautiful waterfall at Murchison Falls National Park.
Lake Mburo National Park is a former gaming reserve, so you already know that it is full of the more exciting wildlife that Africa is known for. This area specializes in safari tours. Enjoy a day long safari that will guarantee that you see everything that Uganda has to offer in the best way possible.
After the best safari tour, check out the wildlife up close by taking a trip to the rhino sanctuary. This wildlife sanctuary is home to some of the sweetest rhinos in addition to a few chimpanzee and gorillas. A safari is offered by this non-profit organization to make sure that you see everything that you came for.
The landscape of Uganda is as diverse as the wildlife. Extinct volcanoes offer the perfect opportunity for mountain climbing. The various mountains mean that there is an opportunity for everyone that wants to climb, whether they are a beginner or expert. Freshwater lakes are perfect for relaxing with a fishing pole in hand for the evening, vast planes provide more than enough opportunities to see wildlife and gorgeous forestry provides the perfect tree line for a breathtakingly beautiful sunset.
For those that want to enjoy a family vacation in Uganda, there is even more to do. An amusement park provides a full day of affordable fun for the entire family. Couples can enjoy a break from seeing wildlife with a trip to the casino, and those that enjoy learning about history can learn about Uganda at the local museum.
The local cuisine has as much variety as the rest of this country. Because of the many lakes and rivers, seafood lovers can enjoy fish for every meal of the day. Satisfy your sweet tooth with mandazi, an African doughnut, or enjoy some more traditional food, such as beef stew. No matter what your taste buds are craving, you can find it.
Uganda truly has something for everyone, no matter what your age is, what you like or how long you are planning to stay. Mix up your vacation with a short safari tour and then explore this unique African country on your own to see what life in Uganda is like.
