Seek out, photograph, and enjoy the rare Mountain Gorillas and other wildlife and birds of Uganda with JOURNEYS' much-praised, expert naturalist wildlife guide, Paul Tamwenya. We suggest custom trips of 6-16 days with accommodations, hiking, birding, and gorilla trekking designed for your preferences and pleasure. If you have the time, consider including Rwanda in your itinerary.
We have developed this 11-day vehicle and hiking safari -- guided by our multi-talented local partner, guide, birder, and naturalist, Paul Tamwenya -- as the most active and diverse nature safari experience you will find in Uganda. Of course, you will visit the famous Mountain Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, but you will also seek out the chimps of Kyambora Gorge and at least seven other species of primates. Visit the unique habitats of Mgahinga Gorilla National Park with their varied primates and endemic birds. Your trip will include a hike to meet Pygmies around Kisoro and a 4x4 vehicle safari in the vast and amazing Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you will encounter the highest ratio of large mammals and predators to human visitors in East Africa. Expect to see large numbers of elephants, lions, cape buffalo, kob, crocodiles, hippos, other mammals, and many of the 612 species of birds that make the park home. Day hiking on the trip will consist of three- to four-hour walks appropriate to the weather, interests, and abilities of our group. Accommodations are in guest houses and tourist hotels; we will not be camping or backpacking. This special trip is offered on a private and very small group basis only.
"Jayne and I have a total of 29 trips to Africa between us and we both agree that Paul Tamwenya was our best guide ever. I hope I can list all the wonderful things about him: competent driver, smart, knowledgeable, thoughtful, got best local rangers for us. He took wonderful care of us and is obviously well-connected and well-liked in Uganda." ~Susan Chayet, Uganda Safari
