Top 3 Reasons to Go on an African Safari in Uganda

We wanted to share our itinerary for the best single-country, combined big game viewing and primate experience; and to provide you with details as to what you can expect on a Bushtracks Expeditions safari in Uganda.

Jane Goodall showed with her work, and the human response to her work, that primate encounters capture the imagination and the heart in a way that few other wildlife viewing experiences can do. “No one who looks into a gorilla’s eyes – intelligent, gentle, vulnerable – can remain unchanged, for the gap between ape and human vanishes…” said American biologist George Schaller, and we agree. We’ve found that only Uganda allows you to enjoy gorilla and chimpanzee trekking plus Big Five game viewing in a single-country safari experience. Progressing from north to south, you can experience the chimpanzees of Kibale, head on to big game viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and conclude with mountain gorillas trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in a straightforward program that requires no back-tracking.
