Uganda Bucket List Travel Ideas


  • Gorilla in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Why is Uganda considered a top bucket list destination?

Uganda is one of the few countries where you can find the endangered Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat. Trekking the dense and misty Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in search of these magnificent primates is a delight for travellers who love some adventure. 

The abundant wildlife in the Queen Elizabeth National Park offers a great safari experience to someone who wants to explore more of the animal kingdom. With more than 500 species of birds, Uganda is also a birder’s paradise. The picturesque mountain terrain; massive lakes; abundant wildlife; and warm hearted people of Uganda, truly justifies the title “Pearl of Africa” given to this beautiful East African country.

What are the top bucket list activities on an Uganda vacation?

From Mountain Gorilla Trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, to going on a game drive in search of the tree climbing lions in the Ishasha Sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda is indeed the perfect destination to have unique experiences. Doing a boat ride on the Kazinga Channel and exploring the abundant birdlife is also a very relaxing experience. Chasing a troop of Chimpanzee while trekking in Kibale and Kyambura Gorge is another must do activity for someone wanting to closely observe these primates in the wild.
