Uganda safari holiday experiences

Uganda has a wealth of truly unique luxury safari experiences

Chimpanzee safari

These extraordinary great apes are our closest genetic relatives, and to experience a chimpanzee safari in the wild is an awe-inspiring delight. They live in large family groups, and as you make your way through the forest, you'll likely hear them before you see them, shouting and drumming their legs on trees to let each other know they've found food.

Boat safari

A boat safari is a wonderful addition to a family safari holiday for the completely fresh perspective it yields. Boats offer access to beautiful swathes of watery wild that aren't available by road or foot. Being out on the water combines an equal measure of tranquil calm and quiet, with the thrill of approaching animals you wouldn't normally see up close.

Bird safari

When people imagine an African safari, it's usually the big cats and wild mammals that spring to mind. But, after decades of bush adventures, we've come to appreciate birds as much as we do the bigger beasts -- and for a family safari holiday, igniting an interest in our avian friends promises rich rewards that are reaped for a lifetime.

Fishing safari

The African coastline boasts some of the world’s best deep-sea fishing, and angling on lakes and rivers in the wilderness can be a beautifully immersive way to interact with the environment. Fishing safaris are a magical mixture of meditative calm, and wild exhilaration.

Cultural Immersion

Incorporating culture and community brings alive the human context of the country you're visiting in unique and wonderful ways. Africa's cultural heritage is dazzlingly rich and diverse. Engaging on an authentic level with people of myriad cultures can make for profoundly rewarding encounters.

Kids safari

People often ask us if they should take their children on safari, and our answer is always a resounding, yes. Not only are children enthralled by all there is to see, learn and do in the wild, but many of the operators we work with offer specially tailored kids’ safari activities.

Private guide safari

The reasons to make your family safari holiday a privately guided one are many, and once you've experienced the delight, you'll likely never go back.

Walking safari

A walking safari is, without doubt, one of the most intimate ways you can get up close and personal with Africa's incredible wildlife. Plus, it is not as daunting as you might think.

Gorilla Trekking Safari

Spending time in the presence of the majestic mountain gorillas is one of the most awe-inspiring wildlife experiences available on the planet. Located deep in the equatorial mountains of Uganda and Rwanda, a gorilla safari is usually preceded by a hike through pristine rainforest. The hour spent with these incredible beasts is time that will livelong in the memory for everyone.
