Best of Uganda's Wildlife
This week long itinerary takes in three national parks with unforgettable wildlife sightings and stunning scenery.
As with Rwanda, Uganda is an ideal destination for families with teenagers, preferably those with adventurous children aged 16 and over – especially if they have an interest in gorillas, chimpanzees and monkeys. Undoubtedly, the highlight of any visit to Uganda is tracking wild chimpanzees in Kibale Forest and endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, however there are strict age restrictions for these activities. You must be 16 years of age to track chimpanzees, and 15 years of age to track gorillas.
If you would like to plan a family holiday to Uganda with children who are aged 16 or over, our Fair Travel Specialists can create an unforgettable adventure which includes a full day in the Kibale Forest tracking troops of chimpanzees and spotting colobus monkeys and red tailed monkeys, two full days of game drives and boat safaris in Queen Elizabeth National Park spotting elephants, crocodiles, hippos and Ishasha tree climbing lions, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience trekking deep in forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in search of a gorilla family.
We can also include a visit to Moroto Town in north-eastern Uganda where you can meet Karamojong tribe people and learn about their unique culture. Intrepid families who are interested in getting an insight into the fascinating way of life of the Karamojong people can even spend a night in the village.
