Uganda, Gorillas and Wildlife

Uganda is gifted with abundant natural resources, plenty of wildlife and varied relief. Situated in the great lakes region of Africa stride the equator, this marks the point where the West African Jungle intersects the East African Savannah with several major lakes including a large portion of Lake Victoria which is the proud source of River Nile.

The snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains in the southeast are the highest in Uganda and the only block mountain in Uganda. Rwenzori Mountains National Park is one of those few spots in the world which encompasses every ecological habitat, which enables all-round safaris in Uganda.

Uganda is home to up to 60 protected areas, including 10 national parks, where you can spot 330 and more mammal species and over 1050 species of birds including many popular African animals such as Lions, Rhinoceros, Hippos, Elephants, Chimpanzees, mountain gorillas, and Giraffes.
