Uganda

Mist-shrouded forests, jagged valleys and emerald terraced hilltops — Uganda is a wildlife enthusiasts dream.

When Winston Churchill released his 1908 book, My African Journey, he described Uganda as the Pearl of Africa, which is the perfect metaphor for a country so rich in splendour.  

Uganda sits at the crossroads of West African Jungle and East African savannah, making it a melting pot of wildlife, landscapes and culture. Considered as one of Africa’s finest birding countries, it is also home to lions, leopards, buffalos, elephants and almost half of the world’s endangered gorillas.

Abercrombie & Kent has been pioneering African travel for over 50 years. Our bespoke, experiential journeys to Uganda are specially tailored to you. Join us as we go beyond the ordinary. 

Award-winning holidays to Entebbe, Kibale, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Beyond

Join us on our Uganda Wildlife Discovery journey into the heart of Uganda and up close with the country’s incredible wildlife and landscapes.  

Start your experience on the shores of Lake Victoria — Africa’s largest lake before journeying to Kibale National Park, where you’ll join your experienced tracker in search for some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered creatures.

Venture deep into Queen Elizabeth National Park where residents include hyena, leopards, hippos, elephants and a population of tree climbing lions.

After a luxurious stay at your wilderness camp, head south to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park to discover one of the habituated gorilla families in its natural habitat.

Extend your African adventure and explore the contrasting countries of Kenya, Ethiopia and Rwanda or relax with a beach escape to the white-washed island of Zanzibar. 

Uganda's luxury high-end holiday accommodation

Accommodation is more than just a place to sleep at night — it is part of the experience. From tranquil lakefront getaways and intimate guest houses to glamorous tented resorts, your accommodation in Uganda has been carefully selected to accentuate your spectacular surroundings.

Start your journey to Uganda with a stay at The Boma — a charming colonial guest house with beautiful flowering gardens and intimate atmosphere, close to the action of Entebbe.

Your luxury cottage at Kyaninga Lodge offers panoramic views across the Mountains of the Moon, Lake Kyaninga and beyond, which can be admired from your private veranda.

Nestled deep inside Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp — one of the most unique and remote permanent tented camps in Africa. Gorillas regularly frequent the grounds and it is our idyllic base for gorilla tracking.

Best time to travel to Uganda

The best time to travel to Uganda is between June and September, during the country’s dry seasons when conditions are more favourable for gorilla tracking. Migrant bird species are most abundant between November and April. Expect cooler evenings at higher altitudes.
