Tour of the Apes

What would you call a safari and trekking experience that leads you to the dense beating heart of the rainforest, almost face to face with silverback gorillas? Not one or two, but often a family going about their daily activities in their natural habitat.

We’d call it a truly life-altering experience and Uganda brings it to life! Nestled within the heart of the great lakes region in Africa, Uganda is blessed with endless verdant hills, expansive valleys, mountain peaks, and giant shimmering lakes and streams.

Imagine the thrill of a game drive amidst Africa’s wildlife, a boat cruise that takes you to the world’s most powerful waterfall with a good chance of spotting elephants, buffaloes, waterbucks, giraffes, crocodiles, and even hippos!

But, that’s just the beginning as the next adventures will take you closer to primates – chimpanzees and gorillas! While you’re still in awe of the beauty of the forest cover, you’ll start noticing the signs of these gentle beings. Following the park rangers on foot, you’ll witness babies flopping around, mothers keeping an eye, and alpha males protecting their kin.

It is truly a sight to behold! And, worry not, over the years these primates have habituated to human presence and are no danger to us. The trek tourism has aided conservation efforts of these endangered species as well.

Uganda also boasts of numerous species that you’ll get to photograph. And, we’ll take you close to the famous Shoe Bill, let’s hope we find it catching its lunch!

If you dream of an all-in-one experience where you can observe and photograph wildlife from afar and up close, this tour is for you.
