Reason to visit for safaris in Uganda

Planning your trip

The Pearl of Africa, according to Winston Churchill, is Uganda. One of the most varied and concentrated populations of African wildlife can be found there, including the critically endangered mountain gorilla and the threatened common chimpanzee.

Although Uganda is accessible and reasonably priced, it does not meet the high criteria for tourism set by more established locations like Kenya or Tanzania, let alone South Africa. As a result, it has a greater edge, genuineness, and lack of predictability. There are more options for enjoyment—and annoyance—rather than danger (although see the section below on being safe for details).

This is true in Africa; the crowded, filthy city of Kampala gives way to luxuriant subsistence farming and tiny communities. Everything seems to have its own distinct smell, the roads are bumpy, and nothing goes exactly as planned or on schedule.

The critically endangered mountain gorilla is the main lure for tourists, although there are also other primates including chimpanzees, birds, Murchison Falls, hiking the Rwenzoris, and white water rafting close to the River Nile's source.

When to visit

Uganda has a warm climate all year round, and because it lies on the equator, seasonal temperature variations are insignificant. The main factor you should consider when planning a trip to Uganda is the rainfall pattern, especially if you plan on hiking in the Ruwenzori Mountains.

The wettest months are April, May, August, September, October and November. During these months, camping isn't very practical (you'll be packing up your tent in the rain as often as not), but hiking can endurance test, and some unsurfaced roads may be impassable.

Paperwork

A valid passport is required to enter Uganda. The date of expiry should be at least six months after you intend to end your travel; if it is likely to expire before that, get a new passport.

Visa

Uganda has changed its rules concerning visas. Make sure you obtain your visa to enter Uganda before you arrive in Uganda. All safari visitors should check current visa requirements before they leave to go on safaris in Uganda. If you require a visa, it must be bought in advance at an Uganda embassy or high commission. Since you must give dates of travel and visas may not be extended.
