Uganda borders on the magnificent lake Victoria, to the west of the more famous big brother of safari destinations, Tanzania. Uganda’s most unique experience is the mountain gorilla encounters offered in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Other areas which are famous are the Queen Elizabeth National Park, and the famous Ruwenzori mountain ranges. The main access point is Kampala/ Entebbe overlooking the Lake Victoria. This is the hub for flights into and out of the gorilla trekking regions of the south west, and is ideal for a pre or post trip stay.
Uganda does have a few safari reserves and lodges to offer, but generally they are a repetition of what it on offer in Tanzania and Kenya, and thus more likely to be skipped over, to focus on the key unique attraction of gorillas in Bwindi forest. The most famous lodges in this area are Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, Silverback Lodge and Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge.
