Alexey 10days Uganda trip
From per person
10days, Town tour, Murchison Falls NP, Kibale NP, Queen Elizabeth and Lake Mburo NP Trip
Uganda is a land of contrast, dappled with wildlife, serene undulating hills of tea plantations, lush but orderly, give way to tangled jungle and rainforest with the musical accompaniment of chaotic, cacophonous birdlife. Uganda is alive with these contrasts: yet silent elephants, disappearing like a vapour behind the trees, the chimpanzees crashing about the forest canopy, the lugubrious gorilla, chewing thoughtfully in the bamboo thickets. Let us show you Uganda with all its contrast and wildness.
