Legends create electrifying experiences in remote Uganda. White rapids surging on the River Nile, silverback gorillas drumming their chests, endangered chimpanzees clambering above your head. Moments of pure adrenaline are matched by soul-soothing encounters, like infant gorilla twins or a golden monkey troop's peculiar gaze. Featuring two gorilla treks and stunning micro flights, this 9-day Uganda safari contrasts untrammeled thrills with the country's ambiance of charm.
Jinja – Relaxing Along the River Nile
From the lodge balcony, the River Nile looks calm. It slowly drifts between steep terraced fields, then turns between lush climbs of indigenous forest. Blues and greens are complemented by the raw red of the earth, the distinctive hue seeming to represent the ancient splendor of Africa. Around the corner, the Nile descends through a series of rapids, but that is for tomorrow; today is for lounging on the terrace and admiring the surreal landscape paintings of Uganda. You touch down at Entebbe International Airport, where you're greeted for the 2-hour transfer east to Jinja, a journey that skirts the shores of Lake Victoria. Dinner is included at the lodge.
