I liked the things we saw in Uganda, but Tanzania was better.

The park is a very appealing place. The wildlife is not quite as ubiquitous as in some of the Kenyan parks I've visited, but of course I was only in Murchison for a couple of days. The Nile River was certainly a highlight and unique -- a rare chance to view wildlife interacting with this iconic river.

Fabulous primate destination
Overall rating
5/5

Primates were great. Inches away from Mountain Gorillas and 20 feet from Chimps on a walking safari. The River Cruise on the Kazinga had amazing views of hippos, elephants, birds, etc.
Food was surprisingly good. Very uncrowded. Accommodations were very good. Queen Elizabeth safari not up to Serengeti or South Africa standards but still ok. Guide was great. There were two of us and a guide and Land Rover for a week. Rarely saw other tourists. The locals were colorful but not sure they really liked us being there, esp if we took photos of them.
All in all, not on the beaten path but the experience is one not to be missed.

I am not really in to birding, but I did notice quite a few different types of birds and some interesting coloured birds and our guide, a Park Ranger was able to tell me about them; but as I said, as I am not a birder not I'm not sure if this what one would be looking for. Having said that, if you have an interest in birds, I would assume you have an interest in wildlife in general, so I think it is still a not to be missed destination.

Uganda is a great destination to get off the beaten track from countries such as Kenya and Tanzania.

4/5

We enjoyed our time in Uganda and saw a great variety of wildlife in the three parks that we visited. The weather in late June / early July was great. The food and accommodations at the parks were first-rate. The roads are a little challenging and take time to cover the distance, but add to the authentic feel of being on safari in Africa.

Uganda was a pleasant surprise. I was there for 2 weeks and it was amazing. It is definitely in the top 5 places I have been in the world with it's beautiful layout in Kampala (the view of the city from one of the many hills is incredible), to the wildlife of the Nile.

You won't be disappointed. You will see so many different animals and so many beautiful scenic. You will miss Uganda when you return home.

See the source of the Nile and the Mountains of the Moon in one trip.
Overall rating
3/5

Unlike other safari destinations in East Africa, Uganda has diverse geography--big rivers, mountain ranges and lakes-- that break the monotony of the high plains and make great backgrounds for photos. Uganda offers serious mountaineering, whitewater activities and gorilla trekking, in addition to the standard bush safari. Ugandans are friendly and more of them speak English than denizens of neighboring countries. It's well worth a visit.
