Trip Highlights

  • Gorilla trekking is a timeless Uganda highlight, but this safari continues to keep it new, giving you a chance to visit two recently habituated gorilla troops
  • Trek to view chimpanzees who walk on two feet in Semuliki National Park, the only place in Africa where this rare behavior is regularly observed
  • Fly between the wildernesses in private planes, aerial journeys that offer stunning views over Uganda and eliminating long journeys by road
  • Escape into one of Africa’s wildest savannahs, Kidepo Valley, a destination where the giant game are not yet used to human presence, and their natural reactions to you are a huge part of the experience
  • Enjoy tranquil Lake Mburo National Park where horseback and mountain bike safaris are just two of the activities at your final destination
  • Bizarre monkeys and mangabeys continue the primate experience in Semuliki, the troops often swinging past your lodge in the forest
  • The handpicked accommodation offers indulgence and opulence while preserving the atmosphere that emanates from the wild surroundings where the wildlife regularly wanders past
  • Surprise comes from the heart of the experience in each of the destinations, East Africa’s best kept secrets offer a chance to embrace behaviors and interactions most have never seen
