From valleys in the north east to the rolling hills and volcanoes in the southwest, and the Savannah plains in the west to the waterfalls in the east, Uganda is one of the most interesting places to visit for an adventure this season. It is packed with lots of incredible attractions that you might not easily spot elsewhere. If you are planning to safari Uganda, here are the top must visit places that should not miss on your travel list.
Bwindi impenetrable forest national park
No other place to see mountain gorillas in the world other than in Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC. Of these three gorilla destinations, Uganda is considered the best place for trekking these giant apes. It offers more reliable tours and the best experience because it hosts the largest population of mountain gorillas- half of the world’s total population. You can see these gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable national park at any time of the year and a gorilla permit to access the park costs US$700 per individual.
Rwenzori mountains national park
The majestic Rwenzori ranges offer a world class hiking experience. They are protected by Rwenzori mountains national park where trekkers go for the life time mountain climbing adventure that takes expert hikers up to the snow-capped Margherita peak. Arriving at the glaciers is one of the most amazing things you can get in 2022.
Mgahinga gorilla national park
As the name goes, this national park is mainly known for the endangered mountain gorillas but features another important aspect; the Batwa pygmies. This is a tribe that once flourished in the forest of
Mgahinga park and Bwindi as but were later on evicted. The life of the Batwa relied entirely on the two forests. On a Uganda safari, a visit to their community allows you to learn about their previous hunter-gatherer lifestyle and other traditional practices like music and drama plus how they copied up with the new life out of the forest.
Queen Elizabeth national park
Queen Elizabeth national park has the widest variety of wildlife than any other park in East Africa. It nearly appears on everyone’s itinerary especially first time travellers to Uganda. Queen Elizabeth national park is listed on the places you must visit this season to allow you witness a rare behavior of the tree climbing lions in the Ishasha sector. On a lucky day, you could even spot a whole pride relaxing on tree branches of the same tree. This is how amazing a game drive in Ishasha goes.
Baha’i Temple Kampala
This is the only Baha’i Temple in Africa and attracts not only the Baha’i community but also non-believers of this. Located on Kikaya hill on the outskirts of Kampala, the Baha’i temple is worth visiting as the serene place gives a cool rest to the soul. It has a beautiful and tranquil environment and being at the hill also offers scenic views of the surrounding.
