There are many Nationalparks in Uganda and they all offer a unique experience with different animals since some species are only found in one or two places all over the country. Since every traveler is different and would like to see different landscapes and wildlife, we tried to summarize the different parks according to that. Also all of our tours can and will be individually modified to your wishes. Whatever it is that makes your heart beat faster, we'd be happy to guide you along the way.
Lake Mburo National Park
A rather small park with a high density of animals. also special about this particular park: it is the only place in Uganda where you can see Zebras as well as Giraphs and of course many many more animals such as the beutiful Impala, Bushbacks, Waterbacks, Warhogs and much more.

Tracking the mountain gorillas In Bwindi ranks among the obsolute highlights of African travel. Uganda is a home of seven habituated Gorilla groups that include Rushegura, Habinyaja, Mubare, Bitukura, Nkuringo, Nsongya and Mishaya.
Kibale National Park
The density and diversity of primates in Kibale National Park is the highest in the whole of Africa. The most well known of its 13 species are the chimpanzees, our closest relative. Kibale’s 1450 chimpanzee indicate Uganda’s biggest population of this threatened primate. Other mammals are also present, though they are hardly seen. These consist of buffalo, leopard, bush pig elephant, and duiker. A neat viewer could also see amphibians and reptiles and a colorful variety of butterflies.
Murchison Falls National Park

The vegetation is characterised by savannah, riverine forest and woodland. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hartebeests, oribis, Uganda kobs, chimpanzees, and many bird species.
Mugahinga Gorilla National Park
Mgahinga Gorilla National Park sits high in the clouds, at an altitude of between 2,227m and 4,127m. As its name suggests, it was created to protect the rare mountain gorillas that inhabit its dense forests, and it is also an important habitat for the endangered golden monkey.
Mgahinga’s most striking features are its three conical, extinct volcanoes, part of the spectacular Virunga Range that lies along the border region of Uganda, Congo and Rwanda.
Rwenzori Mountains National Park
The Rwenzoris – the fabled Mountains of the Moon – lie in western Uganda along the Uganda-Congo border. The equatorial snow peaks include the third highest point in Africa, while the lower slopes are blanketed in moorland, bamboo and rich, moist montane forest. Huge tree-heathers and colorful mosses are draped across the mountainside with giant lobelias and “everlasting flowers”, creating an enchanting, fairytale scene.
Kidepo Valley National Park
Kidepo is Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long journey north through the wild frontier region of Karamoja would agree that it is also the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. From Apoka, in the heart of the park, a savannah landscape extends far beyond the gazetted area, towards horizons outlined by distant mountain ranges.
