Uganda has a unique mix of safari attractions, which include the mystical Nile River, the breathtaking Murchison Falls, gorilla-filled Bwindi, the exciting Virunga volcanoes and the ultra-remote Kidepo Valley. To guide you in creating a bespoke safari there – and to encapsulate the drama and beauty of its varied landscapes – the Art of Safari team has carefully curated a sample selection of the best, all-inclusive luxury Uganda safari trips. Take a look.
Uganda has long been known as the ‘pearl of Africa’, and the name seems doubly appropriate given the quality of the light and the radiant smiles of many of the people there. There’s a grittiness about the country, too, especially as you head further north, and Uganda and its people will get under your skin in the most marvellous of ways.
Perhaps the most charismatic species in the country is the mountain gorilla, and no trip can be considered complete without a gorilla trekking experience. As such, our luxury safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest include this. Happily, the trees admit people rather more easily than the name suggests, and hiking through mist-wreathed forests makes encountering gorilla even more rewarding.
Our luxury safaris in Murchison Falls National Park focus on the Victoria Nile, its changing moods and the wildlife that depends on it. You can cruise the sluggish waters of Lake Albert in search of shoebill or marvel at the fire-hose intensity of the falls themselves.
Another option is to venture to the furthest reaches of Uganda on our luxury safaris in Kidepo Valley National Park and experience a landscape riven by ephemeral rivers where wildlife has adapted to alternating lean and lush seasons.
As Uganda borders Tanzania, we’ve also created multi-country safaris that combine the best of Uganda with the opportunity to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration. The Art of Safari team can also recommend other essential destinations and handcraft an itinerary as unique as you are, just get in touch!
