Primates of Uganda: Chimpanzees and gorillas

24 June 2018 to 04 July 2018
From £4,590
Trip destination: 

Teeming with life, Uganda is reclaiming its place as Africa’s foremost wildlife destination. One of the only places on the continent to see mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in the wild, the Big Five are also here, including tree-climbing lions and the greatest concentration of birds in Africa. Uganda is a staggeringly beautiful country, home to Africa’s tallest mountain range, its largest freshwater lake and the legendary source of the Nile. Half of the world’s remaining endangered mountain gorillas live here and arguably no other wildlife experience on earth is more exhilarating.


  • Journey with Dr Nicholas Newton-Fisher, a primatologist and expert in wild chimpanzee behaviour who has conducted fieldwork in Uganda
  • Search for playful chimpanzees in Budongo and Kibale Forest National Parks, observing their behaviour and learning about local conservation efforts
  • Track endangered mountain gorillas through the misty rainforest of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
  • Enjoy game drives at Queen Elizabeth National Park, with an abundance of wildlife including buffalo, elephant and Uganda’s famous tree-climbing lions
  • Discover the source of the Nile at Jinja, cruising to the base of Murchison Falls, while a further cruise along the Kazinga channel reveals a multitude of birds
