PINNACLE AFRICA SAFARIS, Kampala, Uganda Tour Operators in Uganda

Eco tourism

The Uganda safari starts with Kibale Forest National Park in the West. Enroute, see the Nakaima tree in Mubende, a local tree about 400 years old, venerated in local folklore as holding the spirit of an ancient king. See local projects and abundant game in Queen Elizabeth Park including buffalo, tree-climbing lion, leopard, warthog and the ever present hippo. The beautiful steeply forested Kyambura Gorge, is home not only to chimpanzees man's closest relation - but also the red-tailed monkey, black and white colobus and many bird species. Around Ishasha go on the hunt for the famous tree-climbing lions which lounge nonchalantly on old fig trees. Further south in Bwindi see local communities and projects (gorilla tracking can be arranged as well) before continuing to Mgahinga. Visit the local Batwa animist communities. Return to Kampala via Lake Mburo, one of Uganda's most striking parks rich in birds, hippo, buffalo, zebra and cultural communities. Back in Kampala trail Kabaka's Trail; see the cultures of Buganda and see the preserved lifestyle of their ancient kings. See Naggalabi Kings' Crown-ground, Kasubi Royal Tombs, Katereke Royal Prison, King Wamala's tombs and other cultural visits organised by Heritage Trails Local Project. Namugongo Martyrs' shrine, East of Kampala City where some 22 staunch Catholics were burnt alive in the 19th century is also worth visiting. Visit Bahai Temple, the only one in Africa; buy art crafts. In the East, at Jinja, look at Sezibwa local Falls and the Source of the Nile. Visitors stay in selected homes or lodges of local people who take care of your food, drink and accommodation.
