Our Safari Destinations

Uganda Safaris

 Gorilla Trekking Safari in Bwindi and Rwanda

No other wildlife encounter in Africa matches the astounding experience of spending time face-to-face with wild gorillas. Gorilla Trekking takes place in a handful of far flung locations, adding a layer of exotic adventure to these safaris that is hard to match on any other itinerary. The fact that gorillas as a species are on the brink of extinction and treks are a highly restricted activity, encountering wild gorillas is considered a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience.

All of the remaining Mountain Gorillas in the wild reside in the volcanic mountain ranges along the borders of Uganda, Rwanda and The Congo (DRC). Our Adventure Gorilla Safaris take you to Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Volcanoes National Park (PNV) in Rwanda.

Uganda Wildlife Safaris, uganda Safaris

Wildlife game viewing and photo safaris, walking Safaris and Bird watching adventures in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

Don’t think that a Uganda safari is only about gorillas in rainforests: this landlocked East African country is home to a range of diverse national parks and is a strong contender for one of the world’s best bird watching destinations. Head for Murchison Falls National Park or Queen Elizabeth National Park for classic big game viewing, chimpanzee trekking and river cruises.A green, hilly and elevated country with many lakes and mountains, Uganda’s appeal lies in its simplicity. Infrastructure is limited but growing and there is now a good range of safari accommodation and city-based hotels. Ideal for seasoned safari-goers, bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts, Uganda’s star is on the rise – combine it with Kenya or Tanzania for a holistic East African safari experience.

Whitewater Rafting in Jinja Uganda, Source of the Nile River Uganda

The Source of The Nile and Beyond – Adrenaline Adventures like Whitewater Rafting, Bungee Jumping, Sightseeing, & Community Tours.

Famous as the historic source of the Nile River, Jinja has emerged as the adrenaline capital of East Africa. Here you can get your fix of white-water rafting, kayaking, quad biking, mountain biking, horseback riding and bungee jumping. The town itself is a buzzing little place with some wonderful, crumbling colonial architecture. Coming from Kampala, the Owen Falls Dam forms a spectacular gateway to the town.

Beyond Jinja is Sipi Falls, in the foothills of Mt Elgon, is a stunner– arguably the most beautiful waterfall in all of Uganda. It’s the 95m main drop that attracts the crowds, and most of Sipi’s lodging looks out over it. Not only are the falls spectacular, so too are the views of the wide plains disappearing into the distance below. View Safaris & Tours.

Traveler Testimonials

After traveling to 100 countries around the world, Uganda has made it to the top of my list. I often say – a succesful trip is a trip that I did not have to rearrange something because a reservation or activity went wrong – and Uganda went perfect – thanks to Borderless Travel. Carmen – Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA

We can only recommend Border-less travel! They made our Uganda trip such an easy and memorable experience! ~ Nick, Dubai

I could not imagine visiting Uganda again without Peter’s assistance and competence and would highly recommend Border-Less Travel to everyone contemplating even the shortest stay in this beautiful and welcoming country. ~ Jen Gunston – Melbourne, Australia

I regret we didn’t stay longer! After coming back home, I can definitely say Border-Less Travel was a great choice. They took us for a trip that fulfilled all our wishes! I can definitely recommend them (owner Peter and driver Eddie) to all my friends and everyone else! ~ Ana Novak and Family – Slovenia

We are in our late 70’s, and have recently completed a Safari with Borderless-Travel across East Africa which we thoroughly enjoyed. The organization of the Safari was first-class.  We have been on Safari in Africa with three different companies and this was definitely the best.John and Cath Moran – New Zealand

Information centre

According to the 2010 and 2011 gorilla census, the population of mountain gorillas is standing at 880 in the three countries. Of these 880 mountain gorillas, 480 Mountain gorillas are in Virunga Mastiff, shared between 3 countries of Uganda, Rwanda and DRC

Tracking gorillas is a life changing experience. The Mountain gorillas, the highly intelligent, good natured, and fascinating great ape are found in three countries; Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). When viewing the gorillas, you will be in the presence of a powerful, awe-inspiring, yet calm Silverback. You may call him “a gentle giant”. The tenderness and care that mothers show their young is another life changing experience. The infants and the juveniles spend most of the time walking, playing and breastfeeding, giving visitors a smile on the face.

The Uganda Wildlife Circuit (2 to 3 weeks) - Bwindi/Mgahinga NP, Queen Elizabeth NP, Kibale NP, Murchison Falls NP

After arriving at Uganda's Entebbe International Airport, you can spend the night on the shore of Lake Victoria or head out immediately to Lake Mburo NP if timing permits. This is the only park in Uganda that has a population of the graceful impala antelopes, so common in more southern wildlife countries. Your next stop will be Bwindi for the ultimate highlight of the trip: gorilla tracking. You can also decide to do gorilla tracking in the less popular Mgahinga Gorilla NP, which is part of the Virunga Mountains.

Next is Queen Elizabeth NP, which has an array of activities to offer. This is Uganda's most popular savannah reserve. Highlights include a boat trip on Kazinga Channel between Lake Edward and Lake George, chimp tracking in Chambura Gorge and finding tree-climbing lions in the Ishasha sector of the park. The ordinary game drives tend to be very productive as well. Next is Kibale Forest, the best place for chimp tracking in Uganda and home to many more primates and incredible birds and butterflies. From here, you will return to Kampala.

Time permitting; a trip up north to Murchison Falls NP is a must. This park is more remote and falls outside the natural circuit, but is more than worthwhile. The park flanks the Victoria Nile. Aside from boat trips to the impressive waterfall after which the park is named, game viewing from the boat offers a different side to the park and gives opportunity to spot the elusive Shoebill.

The best game viewing months in Uganda are during the dry seasons from June to August and December to February. Primate walks in the forest are a big part of any safari in Uganda. The habitat of rainforests is, by default, very wet and one can't avoid rain completely. However, after heavy rain, the skies often open up to bright sunshine.

The best time for game viewing is in the dry season (December-February and June-September). Some of the roads are impassable in the rainy season (September-November and March- May). Gorillas can be tracked all year round, but the experience can be spoiled to some extent by heavy rain in the wet season.
