Potential Destinations

Though fully customizable, Uganda travel packages most often include a round-trip tour of the country. Beginning in the capital of Kampala, you may choose which direction to travel to begin your tour.

Rwenzori National Park, a scenic mountain route that offers foothill paths and opportunities to view the wondrous Ugandan wildlife, is a favorite destination. Tours through Rwenzori include stunning vegetation, crashing waterfalls, shimmering glaciers, and countless exotic animal sightings.

No trip to Uganda is complete without experiencing the unforgettable Bwindi National Park. This UNESCO world heritage site is only accessible by foot, and the dense forest is inhabited by a wealth of incredible animals and plants. Your guide may even take you to search for Mountain Gorillas. Offering one of the richest ecosystems in the world, a Bwindi tour is a must for all trips to Uganda.

Other great sites when you travel to Uganda include the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, a great spot to view the rhinoceros in a protected environment, and Kibale National Park, one of Africa’s greatest Chimpanzee parks. Here you can track the trails and learn about the habits of the fun-loving chimps. If you are so inclined, you can also travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you can try your hand at spotting the tree-climbing lions!

Waterfall enthusiasts will be in awe after a visit to Murchison Falls National Park. Begin with a boat cruise on the Nile, during which you can view hippos, buffalo, crocodile, and maybe even some elephants! Your cruise will take you to the bottom of the falls for a breathtaking scene. This is sure to be a favorite memory from your Uganda travel experience.

Food and Culture

As you travel in Uganda, be sure to sample the delicious local cuisine. Ugandan food tends to include a lot of rice, with sumptuous groundnut stews or the popular Ugali cabbage dishes. Chicken and fresh fish are the favorite meats—don’t forget to try fresh fish from Lake Victoria! 

Every visitor should experience the array of fresh fruit available straight off the trees—a much-appreciated treat after a day in the Ugandan sun.

Those with nut allergies should be cautious, as peanuts and other groundnuts are staples of Ugandan cuisine. Be sure to inquire before tasting any dishes.

With the combination of unbelievable sites and exciting culture, it is no wonder that round trips of Uganda have become so popular!
