Visit Uganda sightseeing and the great primates before you die “I love Uganda”

When planning for honey moon vacation in Africa, Uganda has to be your first priority and after your vacation you will get the meaning of Uganda being called the “pearl of Africa”. Uganda has got variety of wildlife, great primates like the endangered mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, golden monkeys among other primates, the unforgettable waterfalls, hospitable Ugandans and their cultural aspects.

My husband and I were 2 out of the 8 Americans who were on this 2 week adventure to Murchison Falls and Bwindi. I can honestly say that Uganda is my favorite countries out of the three that we visited (Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania). Of course we had vehicle trouble but the people of Uganda made it so much fun. We had vehicle trouble in the other 2 countries as well. But remember people, we were in Africa! No freeways and no paved back roads. I hope they don’t get paved roads to Bwindi or Murchison as well as the Serengeti. Then it will be more like Yellowstone. The thought of Africa turning into a Yellowstone, Zion, or Yosemite is disheartening. Anyhow…… Willy was wonderful. Anytime we wanted to stop (remember a group of 8) he would pull over and let us get out seeing the elephants, the hippos, the crocodiles, and even a bush pit call. His knowledge is amazing and he was just wonderful person to spend time with. If you get Willy for a guide you must ask about Uganda in general and he will get you all the information about the pearl of Africa.

If you are entertaining a trip to Africa I highly recommend Active African Vacations. And remember you are going to Africa a developing continent. Take you spirit of adventure and no expectations and you will be utterly delighted.

We had a perfect time with Sam, couldn’t have wished for a better driver! Murchison Falls was a very nice park; we saw lots of animals during the game drive and boat cruise along the River Nile. Murchison falls does not only offer these experience but there is also more sightseeing like top of the falls where you can have an unforgettable photographs as you clear view of the falls as marvel into the  gorge of the rocks, I  hope to return soon to this beautiful country the pearl of Africa.

And for my trip in Uganda Murchison falls national park was perfect for wildlife and more sightseeing, Kibale forest national park for the great chimpanzee tracking and an unforgettable Bigodi walk looking for the rare shoe bill and other primates, Queen Elizabeth national park for viewing wildlife in the savannah grassland and cruise along the Kazinga channel that connects Ramsar Lake George to Lake Edward for more wildlife viewing along the shores, visit for the unforgettable chimps in Kyambura gorge then drive to Bwindi gorilla park via the Ishasha wilderness grassland where you can view the tree African climbing lions and more wildlife species.

With fully prepared requirements we could wait to trek the mountain gorillas in the mist, when we were booking our trip with our knowledgeable tour consultant in Uganda we had to pay earlier in order to get us booked gorilla trekking permits of the Rushegura gorilla family which was so interesting from the group members and the juveniles!

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park lies in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the Rift Valley. Its mist-covered hillsides are blanketed by one of Uganda’s oldest and most biologically diverse rainforests, which dates back over 25,000 years and contains almost 400 species of plants. More famously, this “impenetrable forest” also protects an estimated 400 mountain gorillas – roughly half of the world’s population, including several habituated groups, which can be tracked once on Gorilla Tracking in Uganda.(www.gorillatracking.net/blog.html)

It is not restricted to an individual; groups can also charter flights.

You can fly charters into one Bwindi Impenetrable forest to trek the Mountain Gorillas and return from Bwindi to Kampala the Next day. This Uganda Gorilla Trek Flying safari can also be made one way where the plane either picks or just drops there and leaves you there and you come back to Kampala by Road depending on how your Tour Operator has organized your Uganda Gorilla trek Safari One-way tickets, known in charter-industry lingo as “half round trips”(one way tickets), can be bought. Hence, charter airlines can get you closer to your final destination than commercial airlines.

In chartered flights you deal directly with the wholesale tour operators who act as core entities like Kajjansi or Aero Link, unlike scheduled flights. In turn, the tour operators charter entire planes or segments of planes from airlines to fly specific routes at specific times. They set fares and sell tickets either through their own retail outlets, through travel agents or through discount dealerships.

The price is a main advantage of charter flights. Although the fares fluctuate considerably depending on the seasons, they cost from $1000-$1200 less than the lowest road-Gorilla trip excursion fare on a scheduled airline. Depending on the changes in the travel, the charter fares slide low on off-days and higher on weekends.
Larger Uganda tour operators with many flights to different places sell half round-trips that permit you to fly to one destination and return from another. This Uganda Gorilla Trek is always available in Uganda and thanks goes to the Ugandan Tourism board for the Great Role they have made towards the development of Transportation systems in the tourism sector.

Following chimpanzees, the gorillas are the next among the human relatives and they share approximately 97.7% of human DNA. They are the largest existing primates with an adult male weighing close to 180Kg or 400pounds, with arms of 2 meters or 7feet length. Their fur is thicker and longer than that of the lowland gorillas and their nose is slightly dissimilar to theirs in addition to other skeletal features.

 Baby Gorilla and the Gorilla Mountain gorillas cannot stay in confinement that explains why they are never found in zoos.Uganda Gorilla Trekking through the foggy forests necessitates stamina plus patience as it involves trekking for long hours on wet and muddy ground. Coming face to face with the tranquil giants is an exceptionally stunning moment. As they quietly chew their vegetarian foods, they appear as an abandoned human family. Their discipline and grooming of young ones all appears so familiar. The family of gorillas casts a cautious glance at the sudden interference of humans into their private lands, but they are soothed by the clucking the tracker makes. When aggravated, the noisy though harmless silverback bares his fangs, grunts, screeches and beats his large chest before moving away smoothly with its females, males and the young off springs.
