Flora and Fauna

“…for magnificence, for variety of form and colour, for profusion of brilliant life – plant, bird, insect, reptile, and beast – for the vast scale… Uganda is truly the Pearl of Africa.” - Sir Winston Churchill

Managed by Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), the parks offer ‘traditional’ savanna safaris along with boat tours, forest hikes, mountain climbing and wildlife research activities. Uganda is unrivalled on the continent as a bird watching destination with over 1,000 species of birds – several of which are found nowhere else on the planet. It is also home to 13 types of primates including over half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas; and our closest relative – the chimpanzee.
