10 Best Tour Destination in Uganda

By in Uncategorized No Comments

Murchison Falls National Park

murchzNorthwestern Uganda feels wilder and more remote than the country’s principal destinations, but that’s part of the attraction. Its primary calling card is the glorious Murchison Falls National Park. The finest all round protected area for wildlife, balanced with the experience of evening bonfires at the bush camp or luxury lodge. If your timing is right on a game drive, it’s Eden before the fall; leopards resting in trees, roaming herds of elephants and giraffes traipsing the savannah. Its powerful namesake waterfall is where the Victoria Nile crashes through a thin channel on its final descent into Lake Albert. Another highlight is the Budongo Forest Reserve, with a huge chimp population. For years, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and its war on civilians put most of northwestern Uganda effectively off limits. But now that the LRA has fled Uganda, this vast region is once again a prominent star on the traveler’s map.

Queen Elizabeth National Park

qenpFew reserves in the world can boast such a high biodiversity rating and with landscapes including savannah, bush-land, wetlands and lush forests. Covering 1978 square kilometers, scenic Queen Elizabeth National Park is one of the most widespread parks in Uganda. The park is occupied by 96 species of mammals, including vigorous numbers of hippos, elephants, lions and leopards as well as chimps and hyenas. The remote Ishasha sector, in the far south of the park, is well-known for its tree-climbing lions; these females, who enjoy spending the long, hot afternoons snoozing photogenically in fig trees, are the most outstanding sight in the entire park, but don’t miss the superb birdlife or the wonderful boat trip on the Kazinga Channel either.

Lake Bunyonyi

bunyoLake Bunyonyi also known as place of many little birds, is undoubtedly the loveliest lake in Uganda. Its contorted shore encircles 29 islands, surrounded by steep terraced hillsides reminiscent of parts of Nepal. A magical place, especially with a morning mist rising off the placid waters, it has supplanted the Ssese Islands as the place for travelers to chill out on their way through Uganda, and has a selection of gorgeously remote and countrified places to stay on distant islands, where you have only the birds for company. Best of all unlike many lakes in East Africa, Bunyoni is bilharzia, croc and hippo free, and so its crystal-clear waters are all yours to swim in.

The lower slopes are clothed in tropical montane forest with extensive stands of bamboo. Above 3000m the forest fades into heath and then afro-alpine moorland, which blankets the caldera. Rare plant species present here include the giant groundsel and the endemic Lobelia elgonensis.

Chimp trekking in Uganda

By in Uncategorized No Comments

chimpanzees-ugandaChimp tracking is one of Uganda’s astonishing wildlife activities besides gorilla trekking in the Bwindi impenetrable national park. Trekking chimpanzees give a chance to explore other bird life of different species and wildlife like primates of different species at a close and convenient site foraging in the wild and designated spots in the jungle of Africa.
Chimp trekking in Uganda offers world’s largest population of chimps and Africa at large. Uganda has got over 5700 chimps inhabiting in the forests of the western part of Uganda and different places for chimp trekking with experienced guides to take you to most suitable spots for chimpanzees.
Chimpanzees live in huge communities of about 100 individuals and some of these communities have been habituated for tourism. These habituations are made in a way of making wild chimps accommodating to human presence by continuous visits from skilled guides and this usually goes on for as long as years, after around that time chimps start adopting living around human.
Un-habituated chimpanzees tend to run away when approached by humans. Visitors visiting habituated chimps in the designated sites spend around one-hour maximum with the group. These chimps share 98.7% of the human DNA, and like the human, chimpanzees stay in composite societies where they solve their problems make and use tools, engage in elaborate interactions and communicate through a variety of sounds and gestures.
Treks are lead by trained rangers to ensure the safety and give great experience for your trekking for they know the best spots for tracking down chimps as well as giving valuable information about the lifestyle of chimpanzees in the wild. Also, some of these chimps got used to the ranger and not welcoming to strangers which makes them back if they don’t see familiar faces.
Chimpanzees can attack you if they don’t see you familiar, it was allegedly reported way back in Budongo forest where habituated chimpanzees attacked tourists who had gone for tracking without guides.
Chimp tracking has two sessions throughout the day ie morning session from 7 am and the afternoon session from 2 pm. Tourists choose due to their schedule. However, each session proffers diverse encounter. For example, during morning hours chimps are very rare, they are in the trees foraging on the tree leaves and hunting for monkeys, while as in the afternoon they come down getting back together in their groups escaping the heat and the sun and groom, mate etc.
Tracking sessions allow not more than 8 tourists; sessions are limited to avoid destroying the natural habitat as well as not allowed to children below 16 years with no exception.

Birding in Bwindi forest national park in Uganda

By in Uncategorized No Comments

uganda-birding-safari-1Just three hundred and thirty-one square kilometres of the dense forest in the south west of Uganda, and one of the oldest, rarest and most diverse ecosystems in Africa, the Bwindi Impenetrable National stands about as an amazing jungle.
Established in 1991, situated along the western border, and sanctuary to the endangered mountain gorilla, to at least nine other species of primate, to a multitude of birds, to the giant forest hog, to antelope, fish and hundreds of species of butterfly, it represents a sizable chunk of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest proper, and is possibly Uganda’s most valuable natural asset.
Best known for the fact that it houses a high proportion of the world’s population of mountain gorilla, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – for those keen to study, see and be among a species of mammal which, in terms of behaviour, is more like us than not – is something of a holy grail.
The gorillas themselves are granted great freedom of movement, their contact with humans is carefully monitored, and trekkers are encouraged to observe codes designed to protect the primates from contracting human diseases. Gorilla treks are highly organized, scientifically sanctioned and strictly guided. The reward is an experience almost impossible to describe: it is rare that a wild animal, particularly one so large, and one generally surrounded by its young, allows even fleeting access to the workings of its inner world – rarer still that it seems to positively enjoy the close proximity of humans.
Serviced by three excellent camps, and by people (from the local community as well as from the rest of Uganda and abroad) intent on preserving and developing its unique habitat, the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is East Africa’s most beautiful forest. Aesthetically, ethically, it deserves our attention.
CLIMATE INFORMATION
Given its relatively humid climate, temperatures nationally are reasonably constant, ranging from a dry season maximum of 25°C to a wet season maximum of 31°C. Affected by altitude, position and the interplay between the ITCZ and meso-scales, the annual precipitation range is 400mm to 2200mm. A diagonal – south-west to north-east – zone known as the cattle corridor axis experiences between 400mm and 1000mm per annum, as does a section of the western flank of the western rift valley (Lake Albert), while the rest of the country receives upward
