The Pearl of Africa is much more than the best Gorilla Trekking Africa.
More than Gorillas – Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking that most Tourists come for
There is an Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking. Uganda is much more than its famous primates that attract visitors from around the World.
Uganda is East Africa’s most biodiverse country. Lonely Planet states that it is all of Africa condensed into one small country, similar to Oregon State in the US.
2020 was the year that the World stood still due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In post-COVID-19 times we suggest that you focus on one country for your African Safari, Uganda, the pearl of Africa. It is a country where you can still find Africa, as it used to be, but without the crowds.
Forget about traveling to three countries, each with its own set of COVID-19 Protocols. Take Winston Churchill’s words to heart, who wrote, “Concentrate on Uganda…it is the Pearl of Africa.”
Take the time to discover “Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking.” Set aside enough time to take in the best of Uganda, the gorillas, but do not leave out what is beyond the Gentle Giants of the Forest.
What awaits the traveler beyond Gorilla Trekking in Uganda?
Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking is where there is the giant Central African Ituri Jungle that spills over the banks of the Semliki River into Uganda. It is a jungle teeming with rare birds, chimpanzees, and other primates that you cannot find elsewhere in East Africa.
Rising from the jungle is a snowcapped mountain range, taller than the Alps, a place called by the ancients the Mountains of the Moon.
Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking is where the longest river, the River Nile, flows forth from Lake Victoria, the most enormous lake on the continent flows forth. Discover the hidden tropical Ssese Islands with their sandy beaches and verdant forests.
Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking includes the best Chimpanzee trekking in East Africa in the Kibale forest. Golden Monkey Trekking in Mgahinga Gorilla Park, seeing the tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, the vast elephant herds in Queen Elizabeth Park, and seeing the largest population of Nubian (Rothschild) Giraffes in Murchison Falls Park.
Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking should include a must-visit to the remote Kidepo Valley Park. The park has often been referred to as a “lost Eden.” It is the kind of place where Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen would feel at home.
Uganda beyond Gorilla Trekking means authentic cultural experiences that have become a rarity in East Africa and elsewhere. This is beyond Kodak Moments, but meeting and being with the Batwa, the original people of Southwest Uganda, and seeing their beloved forest through their eyes. Hiking up Mount Morungole to the Ik People, a tribe that lives 2,700 meters above sea level. The only trails are those that goats have trodden.
