Gorilla Silver-back Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

 

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is Uganda’s oldest and “Impenetrable” natural forest and most biologically diverse forest in Africa that lies in the southwest corner of Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Bwindi impresses with a truly theatrical landscape of volcanoes, jagged valleys, waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain ranges.

Mgahinga National Park Gorilla Silverback

 

 The smallest of Uganda’s National Parks and probably most scenic National Park, Mgahinga's main attraction is the large population of mountain gorillas which live within the park for part of the year and are the main focus of activities here.

Queen Elizabeth National Park Elephant

 

Queen Elizabeth National Park is Uganda's most popular National Park and certainly one of its most scenic. Divided into two parts by the equator it stretches from the crater-dotted foothills of the Ruwenzori ranges in the north, along the shores of Lake Edward to the remote Ishasha River in the South, incorporating a wide variety of habitats that range from wetlands to savannah with stands of dense acacia and euphorbia scattered throughout to lowland forest.

Murchison Falls Uganda

 

 Murchison Falls National Park is located in western Uganda at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, where the bulky Bunyoro escarpment merges into the vast plains of Acholi land. Murchison Falls National Park is an unspoilt area famous for where the wide and placid River Nile is suddenly forced through a seven (7) meter narrow cleft/gorge into the Rift Valley escarpment 50 meters below producing a torrent of white water. The Murchison Falls are a dramatic sight that can be viewed on a birding and game viewing cruise by boat to the very foot of the waterfall which is a classic highlight on any Uganda safari.

Rwenzori Mountains Climbing Trail

 

 The fabled and renowned "Mountains of the Moon" lie in Western Uganda along the Congolese border where the snow-covered equatorial peaks rise to a height of 5,109m and the lower slopes are blanketed in moorland and rich mountain forest. Most of the park is accessible only to hikers although the magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine Rift endemics would be ample reward for Birders.

Warthog Lake Mburo National Park Uganda

 

 Lake Mburo National Park also known as the 'Home for Zebras' is a small but beautiful park dominated by the eponymous lake. It has a good range of large game to see and 300 species of birds in the area making it ideal for bird spotting; it's probably the best place in Uganda for acacia-associated birds.
