Visit the famous Mountain Gorilla
Like its neighbours, Rwanda and the Congo, Uganda is famous for the incredible Mountain Gorilla, massive lakes, endless national parks teeming with game, as well as troops of Chimpanzees. Uganda is also home to high glacial clad peaks like Mt Marghuerita also known as the Mountains of the Moon.
From the thundering Murchison falls to Queen Elizabeth National park, Uganda is an adventure enthusiasts dream.
The Bwindi forest is a very thick lush tropical forest on steep sides slopes and so tracking the gorilla can be a lot harder going than in Rwanda. It is far more challenging because of the hills and can take anywhere between 3 and 10 hours in total, from start to finish. On the odd occasion, one is lucky enough to find the gorilla quickly, particularly if they are on the lower slopes.
