Imagine your trip to Uganda, designed for lifelong memories

The Pearl of Africa is located in the eastern part of Africa. Big cities like the capital Kampala and the city of Entebbe are both located near Lake Victoria, which is an extremely important source of life for the locals in this landlocked country. The lake is paradise for divers because of the over 200 species of fish. Uganda also has 10 national parks where you can see our close relatives the chimpanzees, and the fascinating mountain gorillas.

Bwindi National Park is largely known for harboring over half of the remaining mountain gorillas in the world. But the park also used to be home to the Batwa pygmies. After being evicted from the forests they keep their culture alive and make a living by guiding tourists into the forest to show how they lived, ate and hunted.

Queen Elizabeth National Park is the most visited national park. It has a diverse wildlife, but it´s primarily known for its tree-climbing lions, relaxing in fig-trees.

Kidepo Valley National Park has been named the third best park in all of Africa. Enjoy watching giraffes, cheetahs, lions, zebras and leopards in a park which for many represents what Africa used to be. Murchison Falls National Park is the biggest park. Also great for game viewing, but mostly known for the beautiful Murchison waterfalls.

The glorious Nile is the longest river in the world and runs through 11 countries, one of them being Uganda. Get on a river cruise to get a view from a boat. Have a local guide take you kayaking or book an unforgettable white river rafting tour.

For climbers and hikers there are a number of mountains and volcanoes to pick from. Mount Stanley in the Rwenzori Mountains is Africa´s third highest peak and has not near as many tourists as Kilimanjaro. But the way up requires high level skills and excellent physical condition, so the rest of us can enjoy hiking the mountains at a lower altitude as there are a number of scenic treks waiting.

Another cool thing about Uganda is that it is possible to cross the Equator. It can be a bit touristy, but it´s pretty special to have one foot on the Northern hemisphere and one on the Southern.  

With all-year summer, Uganda has the most beautiful blue skies. And because many houses still don´t have electricity, you´ll be able to see starry nights like no place else. Together with the sound of crickets and frogs in the distance, it´s an unbeatable combination.

Whatever food you crave, you´ll be able to get it in Kampala. Everything from sushi and pizza, traditional Ugandan food to high-end french restaurants. Another thing you´ll notice is the good coffee. Uganda is a longtime producer and in later years Arabica coffee beans have made their way to Kampala´s coffee houses where they´re mixing some of the most unique coffee out there.  

Last year a global survey named Uganda “the friendliest country globally”. The people are known for the way they make people feel welcomed and included. Go find this pearl.

We had an excellent 5 day experience, first seeing the gorillas in Bwindi, and then having some fun game drives in Queen Elizabeth. My absolute favorite part was the chimp trekking in the gorge. Our driver was professional and friendly, our accommodations were comfortable, and the food was fantastic! Thank you for a great time!

An amazing experience. Booked a 5 day trip with Hajarah and he was very helpful. Already from the airport pick-up I was warmly welcomed by Katie and Alex, they have done everything to make it as pleasant as possible for my trip. Nothing was too much and they even made proposals. The lodges of Bwindi and Queen Elizabeth were well cared for with excellent meals. Friendly and helpful staff. The visit to the gorillas / chimpanzee, game drive and everything else was anamazing experience in this beautiful country.
