Uganda Tours and Safaris
MOUNTAIN GORILLA TRACKING
Uganda has the widest variety of primates anywhere in Africa; including chimpanzees and the endangered mountain gorilla. These primates have their own natural habitat in the tropical rain forests of Bwindi and Mgahinga National Parks. From the latest census, over 360 gorillas are living in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where six families have already been habituated for the tourists interested in tracking the gentle giants. Gorilla tracking is the most sought after tourist activity in Uganda yet trekking through the tropical rainforests in search for the gentle giants is an unforgettable and unique experience.
Uganda hosts a large population of chimps in both protected areas and private land. Amongst the most notable protected areas where there are high chances of seeing chimpanzees from the wild include Kibale Forest National Park, the Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park and Semuliki National Park. Chimpanzee Tracking is another experience that Uganda offers to its visitors. Chimpanzee Tracking is carried out amongst habituated families within Kibale National Park, Budongo Forest and Kyambura Gorge (in Queen Elizabeth National Park).
Uganda's network of national parks and game reserves offers chances for game viewing to tourists interested in seeing wildlife in Africa. Among the significant national parks where game viewing is carried out include Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls, and Lake Mburo National Park etc.
The remarkable 1010 recorded bird species provide unquestionably the richest birding on the continent. The best sites for bird watching are: Semuliki National Park and Wildlife Reserve, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Queen Elizabeth National park, Lake Mburo National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Mabira Forest and Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.
Mountaineering can be carried out on Rwenzori Mountains, Mount Elgon and Muhavura Mountain Ranges in Western Uganda.
Sport fishing is another tourist activity that can be carried out in Uganda. Sport Fishing can be done on Lake Victoria and Murchison Falls National Park. The main catch of the Lake is the Nile Perch, which is the largest fresh water game fish in the whole world; the method of fishing is by use of trolling lures. The most common fish of the lake is tilapia. At Murchison Falls, fish are often caught using live bait. Fishing is generally done over a few days, requiring some level of fitness and experience.
