Uganda Tours, Overland Packages & Adventure Safaris

Uganda Tours will bring you face to face with the famous mountain gorillas in Bwindi National Park and Virunga Mountains as well as the scenic Murchison Falls. Uganda is landlocked and divided into five kingdoms and 111 districts which are divided into 146 counties. Populated with approximately 36 million people, there are almost 40 languages spoken throughout with the most popular being Luganda. The Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the most popular national park to trek to see the gorillas on your budget tour to Uganda Gorilla Safari. It has a gorilla population of approximately 340 which make up almost half of all mountain gorillas in the world. Other national parks at which to trek the mountain gorillas include Mgahinga National Park and Virunga National Park, both in Uganda.

Gorilla trekking is definitely an experience of a lifetime (All you need to know about Gorilla Trekking). Lake Victoria is one of the most popular Great African Lakes, and the world’s second largest fresh water lake. It is also the source of the Nile River with scenery made of tropical forests and snow-covered mountain ranges, home to over 100 mammal species and 606 bird species. Another highlight of Uganda is the Entebbe and Ngamba Chimp Island which is the chimpanzee island sanctuary created to care for orphaned chimpanzees in a safe, protected natural environment of rain forest. The eco-friendly island has compost ablutions, rainwater collection, waste management and solar powered electricity for hot water. In addition to our tours below, we also offer a variety of Budget Tours in Uganda to suit your needs.

Why go on a Budget Uganda Tour?

Jinja

The town of Jinja is filled with old Asian-style buildings. The neighbouring town of Jinja is built over the opening from Lake Victoria, renowned as the source of the River Nile.

Entebbe and Ngamba Chimp Island

In the 19th century, Entebbe was the colonial centre of Uganda, and, until 1962, the capital city. This charming, sleepy place is characterised by botanical gardens and colonial buildings. If you hunger for some eccentric wildlife, hop on a traditional canoe or motor boat to Chimp Island, a special sanctuary for chimpanzees on a beautiful forested island. These chimpanzees were illegally removed from the wild, so authorities confiscated them and put them here. You can get a good close-up view on the raised platform, especially during feeding time.

Kampala

Kampala (capital) is situated on the hills on the northern edge of Lake Victoria, and is the booming capital of Uganda. It’s a modern city, and since the damage it suffered from civil conflict in the past, its services are being improved every day. New buildings have sprung up, with shops and markets being well stocked once again.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

One of the last remaining habitats of the mountain gorilla, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of Uganda’s most recently created national parks. Almost half of the gorillas left in the world live here, which is estimated to be only 330 of them.

Sipi Falls

Sipi Falls is a showstopper, and arguably the most beautiful waterfall in all of Uganda. These days it’s much more accessible than it used to be via one of the best roads in the country. You can go on some of the excellent walks that are on a network of well-maintained local trails, with beautiful scenery beaming from every direction.

Queen Elizabeth National Park

Queen Elizabeth National Park lies in the western arm of the Great East African Rift Valley, and is centred around Lake Edward and Lake George. During the launch trip along the Kazinga Channel, you’ll have a great chance of spotting hippo, buffalo, elephant and many different birds.

Murchison Falls

Murchison Falls is the biggest national park in all of Uganda. The River Nile runs through it, and many a wildlife species has made this park its home.

Kabale

On your way to tracking gorillas at Bwindi and Mgahinga National Parks, you’ll overnight at either Kabale, a small rural town in south-western Uganda, or Lake Bunyonyi nearby. When in Kabale, you have to experience its fresh-food market. The town’s the major trading centre for south-western Uganda, because the region is so heavily populated and extensively cultivated. The market’s narrow passages are lined with wooden stalls that are piled high with colourful fruit, vegetables, beans, grains and nuts.

Lake Bunyonyi

A few million years ago Lake Bunyonyi was a volcano. Today it’s the deepest crater lake in Uganda and one of the few lakes in the country that is Bilharzia-free. It’s around 1980m above sea level, and bird lovers would love this place. Over 200 species of birds can be spotted here, thanks to the alluring surrounding forests, farms and gardens.

What are the Best times to go on a Uganda Tour?

June– Sept: This is a very dry period.

April – October: Brings the rains.
