Active Uganda

Hike, Trek, and Canoe Across Uganda on our 11 Day Private Safari

Uganda is truly a destination for everyone, from a first-time African traveler to a safari veteran. It is a country of vast diversity, offering the highest mountain range in Africa, the magnificent Great African Rift Valley, the mighty Nile River, the second largest fresh water lake in the world and the famous and remote Murchison Falls. Its people are renowned as being the friendliest and most charming on the whole continent, and make one and all feel welcomed and relaxed from arrival to departure.

Uganda is possibly the most diverse natural history country in Africa. It is one of the top birding destinations in Africa. Lush, tropical rain forests are a prominent feature in Uganda’s ecosystems and are said to have the most diverse and largest population of diurnal and nocturnal primates in the world, including chimpanzees and the endangered mountain gorillas. Home to elephants, lions, buffalo, and a wealth of other game species, including sitatunga, giant forest hog, topi, oribi, giraffe, zebra and hartebeest, the National Parks in Uganda won't disappoint for safari adventure and discovery.

The Active Uganda itinerary is a comprehensive safari visiting most of Uganda’s top safari regions. There's plenty to keep you active and moving: chimp & gorilla trekking, canoeing, cultural interactions, and hiking.
