About this trip

Nature looms large in East Africa - Join Alex on this stunning safari to diverse Uganda and have the opportunity to see and photograph its most iconic primate species.

Uganda is probably one of the most underrated of safari destinations and in all fairness, that's how I like it. For ten days our small group will travel through colourful Uganda known as the ‘Pearl of Africa. Arriving in Entebbe then flying north for two days of chimpanzee trekking in Kibale, From there it’s to the wonderful wilderness of Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth National Park to search for the infamous tree-climbing lions for which the area has become synonymous.

The final leg of the safari will take us to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the journey headliners, coming face-to-face with the noble mountain gorillas.

This well-curated safari offers the best of both worlds, blending primates and big cats in one of the most beautiful countries in all of East Africa.

Your safari is much more than travelling to places far and wild. It’s about immersing you in the environment, giving you the best, most intimate experience with every detail taken in to consideration. Reaching fantastic places, searching for beautiful and inspiring aspects of wildlife and the natural world. All are key to helping you capture more thought provoking images.
