Luxury Gorilla Fly-In

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is the natural habitat for just over half the world’s surviving population of mountain gorillas. The gorillas you will track belong one of two ‘habituated’ family groups, the Mubare Group or the Habinyanja Group, with only 6 visitors a day allowed to visit each group. Spend anywhere from as little as half an hour to as much as nine hours in search of these elusive beasts over the rough forest terrain. Once the gorillas are located, you will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them, observing their behavior and interaction with each other, and possibly yourself.

The Jane Goodall Institute Guided Safari

The Jane Goodall Institute has been operating in Uganda for the past decade and has assisted many conservation and research projects in the country. The institute has worked to establish a world class chimpanzee sanctuary located on Ngamba Island, on Lake Victoria, and has assisted the Uganda Wildlife Authority in developing an eco-tourism project to observe wild chimpanzees that does not disturb, interfere with or jeopardize their existence, as well as a countywide environmental education program targeting primary school children.

Birding in Uganda

Winston Churchill enthused about Uganda, describing it as "the pearl of Africa". Celebrated for its fine scenery as well as its abundant wildlife, Uganda is home to over 1000 bird species. This safari is designed for general birders who are fairly fit, enthusiastic and are capable of walking in steep areas at fairly high altitudes. Your guide on safari will be one of two leading ornithologists, Malcolm Wilson or Ian Davidson, both of whom have extensive experience in guiding in Uganda, along with other African counties.
