Truly the Pearl of Africa
Overall rating

Uganda is a very interesting safari destination- recently ranked among the top 20 must visit places in 2012 by Lonely Planet magazine, Uganda is still discovered by a few and unspoiled with a wide variety of wildlife species and amazing activities both on water and land. Uganda's star attraction is arguably the mountain gorilla in Bwindi impenetrable forest with other attractive destinations like Murchison falls, River Nile (Africa's longest river), Queen Elizabeth park and activities like white water rafting, bird watching

My mother and I went and visited the pygmies with Gatatu safaris, and it was an amazing wonderful experience! The scenery was absolutely beautiful and breath taking, transport, guides and accommodation was great, best trip of my life. Can't wait too go back!

I tend to believe that Uganda is a bit underrated as a safari destination; it's often trumped by it's neighbor Tanzania. However, I do encourage people to take full advantage of Uganda's parks and natural wildlife, it has so much to offer.

There is still space for improvement, in the sense that very little time has gone by since the reserves were again viewed as such, the animals are a bit skittish compared to some other safari parks. I am sure that will change in time, and the amount of animals you see compensates the fact that some run away. The Grasslands are amazing, and please if you can help it do not miss a chance to sleep by Victoria Nile.

Phantastic experience, lots of animals, amazing views. The best destination in africa. One can see savannah, rain forest, high ,mountains, lots of activities, like rafting, trekking. The people really loving, direct, and don't try to sell everything. A great fusion of being for reform but with keeping the nature, the sources, the animals, like building for the future. I hope the people can keep the conservation of what is really important.

Wildlife is not so rich as in other countries; but some species cannot be found on other places (Chimps, Gorillas)

Give me Uganda any day! There is something so magical about it compared to the likes of Tanzania, Kenya and South Africa. You feel as though you are part of a secret when you are there, like you are the first discoverers - but with the added bonus of wonderful guides and hosts and great accommodation to stay in.

The only downside was driving distances - but I loved watching the country from the window anyway. Who needs to pay a masseuse when a 'bush massage' is included?!

It's like being on a really wonderful and special adventure.

Uganda is at the heart of Africa and presents itself as very Friendly to visitors and full of wonder and encounter once in the wild. Make sure you sit with the people and take time to engage them in conversation.

Uganda has several safari destination throughout the country. I haven't experienced much of that aspect of the country, but as far as I have, I can safely state that on some levels it can easily compete with the better parks in Kenya and Tanzania. It may not have such a diverse and big concentration of impressive wildlife as, say Masaai Mara, it also isn't packed with so many tourists and the prices are quite reasonable in comparisation. For birdwatchers Uganda might actually be the best country to visit in the whole of Africa. I am not one myself, but visiting Uganda made me very much aware of the beauty of birds for the first time in my life.
