Wildlife & adventure safaris in Uganda
Welcome to Uganda’s adventure world, nothing beats coming closer only 7 meters face to face with a Mountain Gorilla mostly a silverback which is the dominant male or head of the family, eight times stronger than the power of a grown man, gorillas look amazing in their natural habitat and the trekking within Bwindi impenetrable forest makes it memorable. Although an encounter with the over 100 strong families of chimpanzees in Kibale forest National Park must rank as the truest definition of ‘a walk on the wild side’- it could stop your heart! To partake the wildest white-water rafting amongst the rapids of the magnificent river Nile, the world’s longest, is the true epitome of an adrenaline-pumping river adventure and we think that a bungee jumping thrill over the river Nile must be what real ‘dare-devilish’ is about.
