Tourists Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi ImpenetrableForest

Think About Visiting Uganda? Explore the Possibilities!

A safari in Uganda is often considered the trip of a lifetime by many. Uganda is a land of contrasts, offering a slice of everything that Africa has to offer, from the snow-capped Mountains of the Moon to the tranquil beauty of the Kazinga Channel, from the mighty force of the Murchison Falls to the stunning stillness of Lake Bunyonyi, high in the ‘Little Switzerland of Africa.’

This country will capture your heart with its diversity, from its rainforests to savannahs and from its mountains to lakesides. Uganda is the true heartbeat of Africa, basking in the sunshine on the equator and renowned for being peaceful, friendly, and full of life. Remember, Uganda is not just about Mountain Gorillas; there’s a whole world of experiences waiting to be discovered here.

Curious about what else Uganda has to offer? Discover our expertly curated list of the top 32 things to do and see in Uganda. From breathtaking wildlife encounters to cultural experiences, this list is your gateway to planning an unforgettable journey.

Interaction with the Ik Tribe in Kidepo

With Lifetime Experience Safaris, discover Uganda’s secrets — the famed Gorillas, elusive Chimpanzees, and its diverse wildlife. We’re committed to crafting journeys that transcend the ordinary, ensuring you and your companions leave with memories that will last forever.

Uganda, celebrated as Africa’s most biodiverse nation, has captured the imagination and accolades of many. Winston Churchill, profoundly moved by his 1907 visit, penned in his book, “My African Journey,” that “For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for the profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for grandeur on such a vast scale, Uganda is truly the Pearl of Africa.”

He further praised, “The Kingdom of Uganda is like a fairy tale. The scenery, the climate, and, above all, its unique people set it apart from the rest of Africa. If there’s any advice I could impart, it would be to concentrate on Uganda.”

As you contemplate an African safari, heed the words of Churchill, who, after traversing numerous African terrains, urged all to “Concentrate on Uganda.”

This year, why not shake things up a bit and venture off the beaten path? Break away from the same old routine of visiting familiar places, where you’re so regular that the staff at the local drive-through knows you by name. Instead, set your sights on Africa. Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to a land where warmth and hospitality are second nature. In the Pearl of Africa, you’ll be greeted with open arms by friendly locals who relish the chance to meet someone new like you. If this sparks your wanderlust, we’re here to help. As a leading safari agency, we’ll work with you to craft an unforgettable adventure. Get in touch today and start planning the journey of a lifetime.

Lake Bunyonyi, Gorilla Tracking and Lake Mburo National Park I cannot recommend this company highly enough, Jesse responds to emails quickly and is very helpful, even when plans are changed. This is the second time we have used Lifetime Safaris. Their staff are skilled drivers (not a small consideration on the roads of Uganda), are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Abaas was a lovely guy who went above and beyond to ensure our short visit was perfect. Thank you Lifetime Safaris we would not hesitate to use you again.

Unforgettable Uganda We had a memorable experience with Lifetime Experience Safari. Thank you, Tom (Jesse-Thomas Kitanywa) and Sula (Guide) for being flexible and making this safari experience unforgettable. We started in Kampala and concluded in Kigali. Our trip includes Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls National Park, Kibale Forest Chimpanzee Tracking, Queen Elizabeth Park, Ishasha Sector, Gorilla Habituation Experience at Rushaga, Gorilla Trekking at Mgahinga and Golden MonkeyTraking at Mgahinga. Every aspect of the itinerary was well-planned with lodges with good food allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the beauty of the natural surroundings and wildlife. Sula, I appreciate the efforts you took to ensure the safety and well-being of my family on those rough roads.

Wonderful safari trip (a "once in a lifetime" experience) We enjoyed the 12-day safari trip with our guide Gerald. The trip was very varied (game drives, walks, boat trips, etc.) and Gerald was a perfect companion. He showed us many animals that we would not have seen without him. Many thanks also for the fruit and local food that we were allowed to try. Everything worked out perfectly, many thanks also to Jesse Tom for the organisation. We are more than satisfied with the trip, would book it again and can highly recommend lifetime experience Safaris

Certainly recommend We have recently returned from a short 3 day tour to visit the wonderful mountain gorillas in the Impenetrable Forest in Bwindi, South West Uganda. The communication with Jesse Tom who organised our tour was always prompt and helpful and he was able to adapt the tour to meet our preferences. We decided to start and finish the tour from Kigali International Airport in Rwanda. Our driver and guide was Rolland. He lived in the local area and was able to add the little extras that make the visit personal and more enjoyable. He was great company and an excellent driver too. We stayed at the Bakiga lodge which was more than adequate with very friendly staff, and only a short distance to where the Gorilla tours began. The trek although through thick bush and steep terrain was relatively short in total lasting around 2.5hrs. It was well organised and we had an hour very close to a large family group. The gorillas were amazing but if you are reading this you will already know this.

Fantastic gorilla trekking experience in Bwindi I had an amazing time with Lifetime Safaris, the organization and payment process went smoothly through the organizer Jesse and my guide Roland was a pleasure to be around. I was picked up at Kigali airport, transferred to Bwindi (incl a smooth border crossing into Uganda), we stayed at Bakiga Lodge (super friendly staff) and brought back after an amazing trekking experience with the gorillas.

Lifetime Expérience une expérience à la carte qui porte bien son nom 🤗 Bonjour, J'écris ce commentaire en Français car peu de francophone choisissent l'Ouganda pour décourvrir l'Afrique de l'Est et c'est bien dommage car ce pays, à travers ses habitants, sa culture, son état d'esprit et surtout ses paysages est un incroyable pays ! Nous sommes partis avec ma compagne pour un voyage de 6 jours en Ouganda. Le but était de rencontrer les gorilles dans leur habitat naturel. Life Time Expérience nous a permis de créer un voyage sur mesure. Notre Guide MOSES est quelqu'un de professionnel, prudent, sympathique, généreux et qui sait répondre à toutes les questions que des touristes se posent sur le pays et la culture des Ougandais. Je pense que si j'avais eu le choix entre 50 guides j'aurais choisi MOSES ! Notre guide a été le lien essentiel entre notre vision des choses et la réalité du pays. Il répond sans tabou à toutes vos questions et sa bonne humeur vous garantie de passer un séjour UNIQUE. Il aime son métier et cela se voit. Vous ne pourrez que confirmer mes propos quand vous le renontrerez ! Je recommande à 100% cet organisme pour partir à la décourverte de ce merveilleux pays qu'est l'OUGANDA. Amaury

Life experience with Life Experience Ltd. We chose 10-Day Big-7 Private Tour organised by Lifetime Experience Safaris, Uganda, Kampala for our second safari experience in Africa. We are experienced travelers but this was our absolutely best experience with organised trip ever and anywhere! Perfect! For any item we cannot say something else than five stars: Communication with company manager Jesse-Tom, little changes of program according to our wishes (gorillas in NP Mgahinga instead of crowded NP Bwindi, Muhavura climb instead of rest day) by doable ways, payment, pick up and drop off in the airport, quality of accomodation and meals although we chose low budget option only (donť worry still fully meets European standards), no extrapayment and unwanted surprices... Special comment deserves our safariguide Gerald. Absolutely qualified person for this! Friendly, with sense of humor, clever, knowledgeable wildlife and his country and its problems aswell , great tracker able to find a leopard or a lion only himself and only for us, anytime prepared to do more than only arranged programme, anytime prepared get up earlier and to fall asleep later to catch the whole programme or our other wishes out of arranged programme....Very nice person and friend! Gerald probably knows everyone in Uganda and everyone in Uganda knows him... Why safari in Uganda? Although Africa is no longer a continent of untouched wilderness, the population in all african countries has multiplied, we still find fragments of African wilderness, especially in national parks. These national parks will exist as long as tourists are willing to pay to visit them. If you want see big five and big savannah herds from car seat only choose Tanzania or Kenya. If you want be more active, with walking safaris from eyes to eyes to rhinos, girrafas, zebras, anteplopes, warthogs, monkeys and big apes , if you prefer rather high biodiversity than big amount of the same species, if you want see more ecosystems than savannah like mountain tropical rain forest, or bamboo, tree heathers and afromontane alpine belt in high mountains, if you want to visit relatives - endangered gentle giants - mountain gorillas (its really worth it!) choose Uganda, and best way is probably this 10-Day Big-7 Private Tour organised by Lifetime Experience Safaris. Don´t worry you will still see big five and quite big herds. Tomas Zatocil and family (4 persons), Czechia, European Union

10/10 recommend this company - ask for Sula as your guide! Our guide, Sula the Catman, is truly the catman. He exceeded all our expectations in his knowledge of where and when to find wildlife and he had a lot of insight into life and culture in every region we visited. It's clear that he is very well respected in the guiding community because it felt like he knew the majority of people we came across and had a knack for making friends with his jokes. Jesse, the organizer of our trip was also incredibly accommodative and helpful. He was very willing to make adjustments to our trip and was quick to address any questions we had. I highly recommend using this company, asking for Sula, and trusting Sula's knowledge and recommendations as he guides you on what will likely be a once in a lifetime trip.

Truly an Experience of a Lifetime! A friend and I went on a 10 day tour of western Ugandan national parks and landmarks. The director, Jesse, did an excellent job orchestrating and accommodating our many requests in planning and our guide/driver Sula the catman ensured that our experience was unforgettable. From Murchison Falls National Park to our final destination of Lake Mburo National Park, each day exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend going with this company and asking for Sula as your driver/guide. I will remember this trip and how amazing it was for a long time to come.
