My travels in Uganda, 2018
Getting close to buffalo, elephant and birdlife on boat trips, watching cave-dwelling Egyptian fruit bats, and getting to know the traditions of rural tribes — a trip to Uganda can take you beyond gorilla tracking. Safari specialist Mark shares footage from his latest visit.
Uganda is famed for its mountain gorillas, and tracking them through the forest with a guide is one of the world’s greatest wildlife experiences. Africa specialist Toby describes how to encounter Uganda’s gorillas and more of its wildlife, from chimpanzees to tree-climbing lion.
Tracking mountain gorilla in either Uganda or Rwanda is one of Africa's most memorable wildlife encounters. There are pros and cons to each country, but in each one, you will have an experience you will never forget.
Africa's most famous primates are its gorillas but there are places which reverberate to the hoots and shrieks of their closest relatives, chimpanzees. Discover more about Audley tailor-made trips to see wild chimpanzees.
