Uganda is well-established as the gorilla trekking destination, but it doesn’t have to be the only reason for visiting Uganda. If you are on a budget and looking for an African safari with community spirit, then this itinerary is for you. You’ll stay in hand-picked 3* accommodations and the tour will focus on the wildlife and communities that also call this country their home.

You’ll have game drives a plenty through three of the Ugandan National Parks, spotting massive herds of elephants, lion prides and if your lucky, some leopards and hyenas. Don’t worry, if you still want to have your primate fix, then you can include a chimpanzee trek through Budongo forest in Murchison Falls.

If you want to upgrade to 4 or 5-star lodges and add in a gorilla trek then this is certainly possible, just give us a call and speak to Catherine who will be happy to discuss changes with you and advise the supplements that will be added.
