Uganda also known as the pearl of Africa has plenty of national wildlife parks where you can see a lot of animals in a short amount of time. These national game parks often have comfortable accommodations with swimming pools and buffet lunches and dinners.
Certain lodges and hotels also have age limits. Wild animals roam in close proximity to camps and there's a real risk to your toddler if s/he decides to leave the tent on their own. Some lodges may not have suitable dining options for small children or have food available throughout the day.

Game drives can be long and exciting since spotting wildlife is very easy in Uganda. here are some tips to help keep your little ones interested:
- Buy them a camera.
- Let them use binoculars.
- Award points or a prizes for spotting birds, insects, wildlife.

- Stay in a family-oriented lodge that offers special drives for children or baby-sitting options so you can leave them at the lodge.
