15 Days Explore Uganda Safari, Wildlife and Primates!

The Adventure & Gorilla Safari continues across to Kidepo Valley National Park in Northern Uganda, an area seldom visited by tourists because of its remoteness, to see the beautiful and the unique unspoiled landscape and incredible variety of wildlife in this hidden haven. You will then wind up at the Murchison Falls National Park, the largest national park in Uganda, renowned for its scenic beauty and the spectacular falls from which it derives its name. You will enjoy memorable game drives, a boat cruise and viewing of the mesmerizing scenery in this national park.
One of the highlights of the Adventure & Gorilla Safari will be an encounter with the wild but habituated chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park, the primate capital of the world. Here, you can trek the playful chimps and also go for a nature walk to see other primates, colourful birds, rare flora and picturesque landscapes.
