Why go Safari To Uganda?
Top Uganda Safaris Destinations
Uganda is a great destination to experience wildlife viewing in both forest and savannah. Not to be missed is gorilla tracking in Bwindi; while chimps can easily be spotted in Kibale National Park.
Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls national parks offer wonderful savannah safaris with good wildlife viewing, but animals are not as abundant compared to the top parks of Kenya and Tanzania.

We booked a 10-day safari in Uganda with Moonlight Tours Expedition - and were not disappointed: Joseph, our daily guide, guide & driver was nice, funny, knew a lot to talk about & was always punctual (even too early in part).He also responded to spontaneous special requests, which was great to see more of the local life.The car and accommodations were great - especially the accommodations were excellent, from free laundry service, to food, hand massage etc.
We had a great 3 days trip with Moonlight Tours Expedition, filled with impressions and experiences. The guides were experienced and knowledgeable. The Pakuba lodge had the right level of comfort after the days travel and tracking and the wild life seemed to overflow. Herds of giraffes, elefants, buffalos and other deer were seen all the time, a river cruise in the Nile seeing the large Mutchison waterfall crocodiles, hippos and elefants was another highlight. Additional we enjoyed a visit at the Rhino Sanctuary, which was absolutely amazing because of the close contact to these beautiful animals. Thanks to all for this great experience for us!
We had a great time in Uganda as we saw a lot of wildlife and the gorilla trekking was absolutely amazing. The safari lodges by the national parks were fabulous. We didn't enjoy lake Bunyoni very much and the accommodation there was not great but our guide managed to change our itinerary so we only had to stay there one night and not two. If you're thinking of doing this trip be prepared for quite a lot of driving. Most of the roads do not have tarmac and are in bad shape so even a short distance can take some time. You do get to see a lot of Uganda's day to day life when driving through towns and villages which I found fascinating. Overall we had a brilliant time.
This year I came to Africa for the first time and We did the best 5-days safari-trip with Moonlight Tours Expedition. The safari was great, we have seen so many animals i mean all 5 big and others. Our guide Isaac was the best, he was fun and very experienced and did everything to make some good memories for us! The Camp where we stayed was very cool and especially for the night to feel safe! Everything was like 5 star hotel. Totally recommended.
