Uganda

Why visit Uganda?

Uganda outline Map

Called the ‘Pearl of Africa’, Uganda, full of natural treasures, lives up to the name with its abundance of wildlife and the sheer variety of landscapes! Uganda is home to Africa’s tallest mountain range (the snow-capped Rwenzoris), the source of the Nile, the world’s longest river and the continent’s largest lake (Lake Victoria). With nearly 10% of all the bird species in the world and nearly 50% of Africa’s bird and butterfly species, Uganda has more avian species per sq kilometer than anywhere else in the world – a true haven for Bird enthusiasts.

The Big 5 – Yes! That is a given, but with a bit of panache. Here you will get a chance to see the unique tree-climbing lions of Ishasha.

But the highlight of the trip to Uganda has to be the ‘Primate encounters’ – especially the endangered ‘fearsome’ looking Mountain Gorillas and the Chimpanzees. Spending time in close proximity to a family of Mountain Gorillas would surely rate as best wildlife experiences possible– a bucket list item!

The greenery here is also thanks to the  banana, tea and coffee plantations around the villages making the long drives exciting and varied. The Bwindi impenetrable forest features more than 1,000 flowering plant species and almost 200 different types of trees, many of which are endemic. This diverse ecosystem makes it home to an incredible variety of birds, butterflies and mammal species including some of the rarest animals on the planet.

What our Travellers Say

Mandar SalunkheBeyonder Traveller - Cambodia

The trip overall was a quite nice and enriching experience. Cambodia as a country with its different culture as well as the epic nature of the monuments that we witnessed left us awestruck. The guide was quite helpful and was knowledgeable too. The hotel facility was decent and was in a nice locality that had good access to Pub Street, Airport, as well as restaurants for lunch/dinner…

We would surely visit other places too through Beyonder as you did hand hold us throughout the entire process of the trip unlike other travel agents that forget the client once the money is paid.
