Uganda National Parks

Overview

The world-class national parks and diverse nature reserves of Uganda draw adventures and wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world. Only in this unique part of the world can one relatively small country boast over a dozen destinations ideal for safaris, trekking, rafting, island hopping and more.

The great number of thriving national parks in Uganda is down to its extreme ecological geographical diversity. The north, where the country borders South Sudan, offers some finest untouched wildlife reserves in Africa.

The Murchison Falls National Park is a must-see and home zebras, elephants, giraffes and many exotic species of bird. The Nile River flows through this region, and river tours offer the chance to see crocodiles and hippos and explore spectacular cascading waterfalls.

Venturing south, you can explore the Ajai Game Reserve –a newly developed safari grounds with knowledgeable guides who know the lay of the land and can bring you up close to the animals.

The Queen Elizabeth National Park is sandwiched between Lake Edward and Lake George (names are relics of the British colonialism). There are sublime vistas here across the Ruwenzori mountain range and it’s well worth going by jeep through the volcanic crater lakes.

Lastly, let’s not forget the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park which is home to the endangered mountain gorillas. Lightfoot Travel’s consultants are well-travelled in the region and use the best guides, who help you see these wonderful creatures up close without impacting on their environment.
