Uganda

Design the forest exploration of a lifetime

In a continent where descriptions routinely exhaust superlatives, Uganda makes other countries appear as pale imitators. “For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for profusion of brilliant life—plant, bird, insect, reptile, beast,” Winston Churchill wrote, Uganda “eclipsed, and indeed effaced, all previous impressions.”

Uganda with GeoEx

A compact country, Uganda is gifted with quickly varying landscapes: semi-deserts in the northeast, lush lowlands fringing the shores of Lake Victoria, and mountain rainforests across the south and southwest. These marvelous topographies create habitats for a kaleidoscope of unique wildlife. Its primates, however, are the country’s greatest wildlife attraction. Uganda is home to chimpanzees, thousands of bird species, and the endangered mountain gorilla (half the world’s surviving mountain gorillas live in the country’s highlands). An artisan GeoEx trip is the best use of our travel expertise and our access to an extensive, vetted on-the-ground network.
