Although wildlife destinations in Uganda’s big game safari parks don’t match eastern destinations, game viewing in an Uganda safari is greatly rewarding. Tourist numbers in Uganda’s game parks are a mere fraction of those visiting the more developed destinations making a safari in Uganda a more private experience. Lions, elephants, or leopard sightings are a moment to treasure, and you will seldom share such moments with swarms of vehicles.

Primate encounters in Uganda’s rain forests are still the best and most accessible in the world. With more than 1500 chimpanzees swinging in the forest canopies, expect the most exceptional chimpanzee trekking excursions out of the kanyanchu trailhead in Kibale national park. Chimp sanctuaries like maramagambo, Budongo, Semiliki, and Kyambura provide a meager chimp trekking experience but are worth trying out.

Trekking human habituated gorillas in Bwindi Forest and chimpanzee trekking in Kibale are the top Uganda vacation adventures, promising dramatic primate encounters and charming experiences.  Uganda safaris are for travelers excited about getting down and dirty through the tall, tangled scrubs and ancient trees that carpet western Uganda’s rainforest with a machete, heavy boots, thick trousers and ridiculous hat to keep the thorns out of your head, patience and a sense of humor. Such dramatic encounters are exceptional but even on a slow day, tracking chimpanzee is still thrilling.
