Best of Uganda's Wildlife
This week long itinerary takes in three national parks with unforgettable wildlife sightings and stunning scenery.
Known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, Uganda is a unique honeymoon destination, offering adventurous couples the chance to experience intimate wildlife encounters, breathtaking scenery, and palm fringed beaches set alongside the great Lake Victoria.
The country is also home to one of the world's last remaining populations of wild mountain gorillas, and you can venture into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to track these incredible animals. It's a rare and special opportunity, and an unforgettable moment to share with your partner.
If you'd like to see more beautiful primates, you can search for golden monkeys in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and chimpanzees in the Kibale Forest. Uganda is also home to Africa's 'Big Five', and you can spot them on game drives in Murchison Falls National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park.
For a truly memorable honeymoon experience, we recommend visiting Kidepo Valley National Park, located in northeast Uganda between the borders of Kenya and Sudan. This remote park has phenomenal wildlife viewing, and on early morning game drives you can watch the sunrise over the vast plains, while keeping your eyes peeled for big cats.
A Uganda honeymoon offers the perfect balance of adventure and romance, with susnset boat cruising on Lake Victoria, and hot air balloon flights at dawn over Murchison Falls, followed by a champagne breakfast in the tranquil bush.
Throughout your honeymoon, you’ll stay at luxurious hotels, lodges and safari camps in spectacular locations. Some of our favourite properties are set within Uganda’s national parks or nestled on the shores of picturesque lakes - one lodge even sits on its own private island in the middle of the Nile River.
The properties offer a range of room options, from charming thatched cottages, to spacious safari tents with en-suite facilities and private balconies. You can even find infinity pools and luxurious spas, to unwind after a long day of extraordinary adventure.
