Gorilla trekking is something that should be on everyone’s bucket list and is worth every cent. A once in a lifetime opportunity to walk amongst these mighty beasts. Uganda is one of only three countries where you can go gorilla trekking.
Chimpanzee trekking is also possible in Uganda in Kibale Forest National Park and is very easily incorporated into an itinerary that includes Queen Elizabeth National Park. Another great way to walk with these apes is to visit Ngamba Island which is an island in the middle of Lake Victoria. This is a rehabilitation centre and you can either go for a day visit or spend the night and get up close and personal with the Chimps.

It is unbelievable how much of Uganda is water what with Lake Victoria, the Nile River and all the Great Rift Valley Lakes between making it a heavenly destination for fishing of all forms: Lure and Fly Fishing. What makes it even more attractive is that it is a lesser know fishing destination which means you won’t be sharing the waters with many other fishermen – if you don’t count the local fishermen.
Uganda is home to the Nile Perch which can be fished on most of the waters of the country but most notably in the Nile River below the Murchison Falls.
