From tracking mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to gazing at majestic lions on the savannah, this suggested itinerary showcases Uganda's stunning landscapes together with some of its incredible wildlife.

The trip begins in the mists of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in search of mountain gorillas - one of the rarest animals on Earth and an icon of Uganda. The gorilla trekking is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and yet, Uganda has so much more to offer. This country is one of the few places in the world where it is possible to see chimpanzees alongside lion, elephant and buffalo.

After experiencing some of Uganda's top wildlife locations by safari vehicle, by boat and on foot, this captivating itinerary ends with a relaxing stay on the tranquil shores of Lake Victoria, the world's largest tropical lake.
