Experiential African Safari Adventures in Uganda
Adventure Safaris in Uganda -Authentic Experiential Encounters in Uganda
Adventure Safaris in Uganda – All of us have an urge, a wish we could get away from the treadmill of sameness and pursue what is inside of many of us – the urge for the adventurous. Whether that spirit was fed by watching the Indiana Jones movies, or reading the many Adventure Novels by Karl May, that adventure urge is in many of us. It just might be time to write a new Epic authored by you and entitled “In Search of the hidden Pearl of Africa.”
Uganda is the perfect setting for adventure with its thick, lush jungles, inhabited by Primates, exotic Birds, mammals from leopards to forest elephants. The Rwenzori Mountains of Moon and the Mountains that cook -the Virunga Volcanoes.
Lost, forgotten tribes such as the Ik People in the remote Morungole Mountains. Ancient Rainforests, the Western Rift Valley, Explosion Crater Lakes, hidden tropical Islands in Africa’s largest Lake, and through it all runs the ancient River Nile, quietly at other times violently challenging the adventure seeker.
Let your personalized Adventure Safari begin by planning it. We love to give you our help in creating it.
