Uganda is also known as the Pearl of Africa. This pearl is yet relatively undiscovered. The country is lush and green, with banana and tea plantations everywhere. This lush paradise is home to the rare mountain gorillas and several other primates. Wildlife is concentrated in Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls. With the most species of East Africa, Uganda is heaven for bird watchers. Beachlife can be enjoyed on the romantic Ssese Islands in Lake Victoria.

Please note that gorilla permits need to be booked at least 3 months in advance, though the actual waiting time might vary to up to one year. Tracking the rare mountain gorillas might even take you on a small detour to Congo or Rwanda (depending on costs and availability of permits).
Contact Lokenjen for the latest information on the gorilla permits (where to go and when to apply for a permit).
