Africa + Indian Ocean


    An unexpected and exciting safari experience

    With its open savannah plains, cascading waterfalls and tall, mist-wreathed mountains, Uganda provides the setting for an incredible and more unexpected African safari.  Its most famous residents – the mountain gorillas of Bwindi and Mgahinga – are just one of Uganda’s extraordinary range of primates, birds and mammals.

    There are some real hidden gems here too. Imagine, for instance, an area that looks just like the Masai Mara, but is almost totally untroubled by visitors. 

    Uganda is also making real efforts with conservation and poaching – once rampant – has been considerably reduced.

    This is a place to come with expert guidance, an adventurous spirit and willing to experience a less-manicured Africa.

    During my trip to Uganda, I ticked off an experience that has been at the top of my bucket list since watching Gorillas In The Mist. I got to see the mountain gorillas. Words can’t describe the feeling that rushed through me when I first locked eyes with a giant silverback.
    When most people think of Uganda they think of gorillas, chimps and tree climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls. Kidepo Valley is a little-known National Park on the border of South Sudan and what a hidden gem it is.
    You know about the Serengeti and the Mara. You may be familiar with Madikwe in South Africa or the Okavango Delta in Botswana. But for many, Uganda remains an unknown entity as a safari destination.

    I travelled to Rwanda with Alby Shale who was in the midst of an incredible project, to build Rwanda’s first International Cricket Stadium. After spending a few days exploring the capital Kigali and visiting the cricket ground site we made our way out of the city to start our journey: to cycle from the outskirts of Kigali into Uganda.
