What to see and do in Uganda


Soaring mountains, terraced hills, and seemingly endless wildlife make this friendly and formidable country a no brainer when it comes to planning an adventurous getaway with a huge helping of luxury. Very much off the tourist trail, Uganda doesn’t have the feeling of being a safari factory, meaning you can track and spot the apes all on your own. Bliss, eh?


Joining a private tour up into the lush, mountainous highlands is a necessity if you want to hang with the Great Apes. Heading into the verdant forests of Kibale and the rolling, mist-pooled Bunyaruguru Crater Lakes you’ll begin your search for these elusive creatures – deep in the unknown jungle. Follow the hoots, hollers, and softly crackling branches. You won’t forget this.


After all of that mist-soaked Gorilla trekking through the Rwenzori Mountains, you’re spoilt for places to rest your head. Uganda’s lodges are among the best in the country, coupling luxurious comfort with charming, old-world boutiques, and unparalleled panormas over the country’s beguiling landscapes.


Uganda’s tapestry of rich landscapes, soaring mountains (the Rwenzoris are the highest range in Africa), and the Nile’s source – combined with its low tourist volume – make for a honeymoon that really stands apart. Whether you want to raft the Nile or tack gorillas in the misty mountainous habitat, the adventure is yours for the taking.
