From snow-capped peaks to dense jungles, this small equatorial country crams in a remarkable range of habitats. But it is Uganda’s forests that hide its real treasures – home to both mountain gorillas and chimpanzees.
Bwindi Impenetrable forest and Mgahinga National Park both contain habituated families of mountain gorillas, whilst Kibale is possibly the best place in Africa to spot chimps. And with countless monkeys also filling treetops, this is the perfect country to encounter primates.
But Uganda also has plenty more to offer. Queen Elizabeth National Park is famed for its unique tree-climbing lions, whilst the Murchison Falls hide elusive shoebill storks.
