Best of Uganda Escorted Tour

This is an exciting small group escorted tour that takes you exploring the wonderful scenery and wildlife of Uganda. You will get the extraordinary chance to go gorilla and chimpanzee trekking in Bwindi National Park. You also travel by boat on Lake Mburo and on the Kazinga Channel where you will spot hippos, crocs and elephants. You go on game drives in the very diverse landscapes of the Queen Elizabeth National Park where you will see everything from tree climbing lions and shy leopards to herds of elephants and buffalo. You will also get the chance to see rare primates such as the red colobus and L'Hoest monkeys in Kibale National Park. This is a very exciting trip for an animal lover with the chance to see some very rare species indeed and offers excellent value for money.
The small group tour will operate with a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 6.

On behalf of every client travelling the Real Africa Trust contributes to conservation as well as working to raise awareness and additional funds for wildlife conservation charity partners which include Save the Elephants and the Save the Rhino International. Our aim is to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species and to promote sustainable, socially responsible travel which benefits the wildlife and communities you choose to visit. For example, the money from your gorilla trekking permit goes straight back into the national park and preserving the habitat as well as anti-poaching efforts and education programmes.
