  • Location
    Uganda is one of my favourite countries in the world. Within short distances the habitats change from lush green forests to open savannah where elephants roam and lions sleep in trees; from fertile lake districts to swamps where the elusive Shoebill lives. Mountain gorillas might be the main attraction but the diversity of other wildlife is simply immense.
  • Likely Subjects
    Mountain gorilla & chimpanzee permits are included in this trip and offer near definite chances to track these primates in their natural habitat. Other likely wildlife includes in no particular order : Lions, elephants, hippos, black and white Colobus monkeys, red Colobus monkeys, shoebills, hornbills, sunbirds, kingfishers, buffalo, impala, baboons and an immense wealth of other bird life.
