Exceptional Uganda Group Safari Tour 2020

This is the longer version of our Classic Uganda group safari tour as it also visits the beautiful Murchison Falls and its national park. Starting in Entebbe you visit the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls, Hoima, Kibale National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where you will go gorilla trekking. This tour includes all the main wildlife highlights in Uganda including chimp trekking, boat safaris on Lake Mburo and the Kazinga Channel and plenty of game drives to see both big game and small; hippos, rhinos, elephants, lion, antelope, birds and much more.

The Real World Conservation Trust (formerly Real Africa Trust) works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. 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.

You then head on via the Paraa Ferry to Murchison Falls Protected Area (MFPA) comprised of Murchison Falls National Park, Bugungu and Karuma Wildlife Reserves.

The vegetation is characterised by savannah, riverine forest and woodland. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, hartebeests, oribis, Uganda Kobs, chimpanzees and many bird species including the rare shoebill. On Day 3 you will get the chance to go on a game drive through the park in the morning to see all the Big Five except rhino.
