Uganda Safaris Important Information

Commonly referred to as the “Pearl of Africa”, Uganda offers more than just an Africa safari in the savanna plains. Uganda is one of the three countries in the world where you’ll see the endangered mountain gorillas. Protecting more than half of the last 1000 remaining mountain gorillas, Uganda attracts huge numbers of visitors into the country just to take a glimpse at these mighty creatures.

When we speak enchanted beauty of Africa, we have to mention Uganda. The country is covered with a green blanket forming some of the most spectacular scenes on the continent. It is here that you’ll experience both the savanna and the rainforest without leaving the country. Beautiful plains form as the flat savanna plains move toward the western mountains formed by the rift valley millions of years ago.

The people are friendly, some of the richest cultures in the world are found here, you’ll encounter more than 43 languages spoken and yet the people communicate and keep a rich social culture. Come to Uganda and live in the real African spirit.

Mountain gorillas live in a small csouth western corner of the country. There two regions in where these giant apes find life flourishing; Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga National Park.

Uganda has put so much efffor into protecting the endangered mountain gorillas, and this shows from the increasing number of gorillas in the area. But these efforts don’t come cheap, so a fee is requested from anyone that wants to be escorted to the see the mountain gorilla in form of a gorilla permit.

A gorilla permit to go gorilla trekking in Uganda’s jungles costs US$700 per person per trek and the permit is issued by the government Authority (UWA) at face value.

With a gorilla permit in your hands, you’re escorted into the jungle through damp floors and thick misty foliage.
