Uganda is home to four magnificent national parks of Savannah habitat, all of which have their own specificities. As a professional travel agency, we know all their secrets!
Murchison Falls National Park
Gazetted in 1952, Murchison Falls National Park is the largest protected area in Uganda. There, you will admire the impressive Murchison Falls, which transform the Nile into an explosion of white water, and have the chance to observe a wide variety of wildlife, including elephants, lions, giraffes, buffaloes and leopards, and hundreds of bird species, among which the famous shoebill. During your cruise on the Nile you will see terrestrial animals from a different point of view and have the chance to watch hippos and crocodiles.
Queen Elisabeth National Park
Queen Elisabeth National Park is the second largest park in the country, and also the most visited park, with extremely varied landscapes. It offers the opportunity to take a magnificent cruise on the Kazinga Channel, explore the crater lakes or track the legendary tree-climbing lions of the Ishasha area. It is definitely a great park to watch elephants since it is home to 60% of the Ugandan elephant population.
Lake Mburo National Park
Lake Mburo National Park is an underrated Ugandan gem. Famous for its impressive zebras herds, this park offers amazing views thanks to its central lake, along with the possiblity to do biking or even horseback safaris! A night game drive at Lake Mburo National Park might also be your best shot at seing a leopard, as they are quite commonly seen in this park.
Kidepo Valley National Park
Located in the far North East of the country, Kidepo Valley National Park is often considered as the Ugandan cousin to Kenyan Maasai Mara Reserve, since the landscapes are quite similar and very different from the rest of luxuriant and green Uganda. Kidepo Valley is a hidden and seldom visited gem, waiting for you to explore it!
