Uganda Water Safari

Overview

Overview: 

Get ready for your close-up with some of Africa’s wildest residents. An authentic African safari along the river Nile. Share the world’s longest river with hundreds of hippopotamus peering over the water’s surface. Game drive through the savannah, and spot the continent’s most docile and dangerous wildlife, from giraffe, elephants, and antelope to bison, rhino, lions and leopards. A rainforest trek through Murchinson falls National Park will put you in position for spotting the four legged heroes of the savannah. Take in the roaring grandeur of the falls at the source of the Nile. Check out the chimpanzees or go deeper into the jungle to find one of the rarest animals on the planet, the mountain gorilla. The real heroes you meet in Uganda though are those bringing clean water to the community. Get your hands wet and dare to discover the true Uganda by doing your bit better its future.

Is this the adventure for you? This adventure is for anyone with a love of the outdoors, a sense of adventure, and an eagerness to witness and experience cultures other than their own. We rate this trip as Awe Inspired, so there is no technical ability required. But in saying that, we do appreciate team-spirit, a positive attitude and a willingness to engage, both with the community and with the project. Pre-trip training is not necessary. Most of the wildlife trekking is on foot but is not too intense.
