A safari in Uganda is not your typical “tick off the Big 5” in one game drive that you would find in places like the Sabi Sands in South Africa. It is a more leisurely affair. The concentration of animals in Uganda cannot compare with your more established wildlife destinations but it has a great variety including some lesser known species. Combine this with the variation in terrain its East African neighbours cannot compete with, and Uganda can hold its own in this department.
Add to the above tree-climbing lions and black and white colobus monkeys and the safari takes on a unique bent.
It is quite refreshing to have a safari surrounded by mountains and lakes, in contrast the dry, flat expanses of the Serengeti ecosystem and the Kruger National Park.
A safari in Uganda is definitely for repeat visitors to Africa who want a less commercialised, more off-the-beaten-track experience.
