Uganda travel guides

In a predominantly dry continent, Uganda is a welcome splash of green, where lush forests echo with the hoots of chimpanzees and vast tea plantations blanket the landscape. A well-planned trip to Uganda could include a face to face encounter with a mountain gorilla in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or a trek through the glacier-topped Rwenzori Mountains.

Our travel guides are an invaluable reference for those planning a custom holiday to Uganda. Read how our specialists experienced the country and let them inspire your next adventure.
