Luxury Uganda safari trips take you to magical jungle realms.

Uganda’s Best Safari Itineraries Our Curated Selection Of The Best Safari Itineraries In Uganda

Uganda’s best safari itineraries cover the country’s unique mix of safari attractions, which include the mystical Nile River, the breathtaking Murchison Falls, gorilla-filled Bwindi, chimp-filled Queen Elizabeth, the impressive Virunga volcanoes and the ultra-remote Kidepo Valley. To guide you in creating a bespoke safari there – and to encapsulate the exciting experiences the varied landscapes offer – we’ve carefully curated a sample selection of all-inclusive safari ideas, which are among the best in Africa. 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 animals in the country are the primates, and no trip can be considered complete without a gorilla- or chimp-trekking experience. As such, our safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Queen Elizabeth National Park include these. Happily, the trees admit people rather more easily than the former reserve’s name suggests, and hiking through mist-wreathed forests makes encountering our cousins even more rewarding.

Our 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 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!
