Uganda: Gorillas & Beyond 2021-22


11 days from $10,995 per person

Limited to 16 guests

Explore the “Pearl of Africa,” from the banks of the Nile to the deepest reaches of the rainforest, blazing a trail through the mists of Uganda’s waterfalls and evergreen rainforests, tracking chimpanzees, tree-climbing lions and endangered mountain gorillas along the way.

A&K Advantages

  • Encounter mountain gorillas under the biodiverse canopy of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, ranging through mist-covered hillsides to observe these greatest of the apes in their natural surroundings, sensing the deep connection between their species and our own
  • Cruise up the Nile River to the misty base of Murchison Falls, spotting wildlife, such as water birds, including the rare shoebill stork; wallowing hippos; elephants that come down to the river bank to drink; and the fearsome Nile crocodile basking in the sun
  • Trek the lush, tropical trails of Kibale National Park in search of chimpanzees, sociable primates that forage food and utter distinctive vocalizations that reverberate through the forest
  • Set out on two full days of game drives in the wilds of Queen Elizabeth National Park, keeping watch for tree-climbing lions as well as elephants, Cape buffalo, Ugandan kobs — a type of antelope — and the ever-elusive leopard
