UGANDA IN COMBINATION

Uganda has such bio-diversity that it can be experienced as a single travel destination but thanks to a well-established network of air connections and on-the-ground logistics, Uganda gorilla trekking easily combines with classic destinations across Africa.

Add on a big game safari in Kenya and Tanzania – the gorilla trekking seasons coincide perfectly with the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti and Masai Mara – or head for the heavyweight safari destinations of Southern Africa: Botswana, the Kruger Park and Victoria Falls for excellent Big 5 game viewing.

It’s also easy to change the mood completely with a beach holiday add-on. Choose from our best East Africa destinations – the island of Zanzibar or Kenya’s beaches on the Indian Ocean coast – or try the water further south in South Africa. Cape Town’s ocean temperatures might not be as warm as in East Africa but the backdrop to the beach is Table Mountain.

We have a wide range of tours that combine Uganda with Africa’s best travel destinations and appeal to all types of visitor from honeymooners and privacy-seeking groups to families and those on a budget. Browse our most popular destination combinations below and visit our Itinerary Ideas page for inspiration or simply contact us with the destinations of your choice and we will tailor-make an itinerary for you.

OUR MOST POPULAR COMBINATIONS WITH A UGANDA GORILLA TREK

Tanzania & Zanzibar

Some of the most dramatic chapters of the Serengeti wildebeest migration coincide with the best time for gorilla trekking & it’s always Big Five season in the Ngorongoro Crater. Browse our recommended Uganda & Tanzania combination safaris – with or without a beach holiday in Zanzibar.

Kenya & Coast

Kenya’s famous Masai Mara plays host to the wildebeest migration during the June to September gorilla trekking season which is also a great time to put your feet up at one of the country’s Indian Ocean beach destinations. A direct flight from Kigali to Nairobi makes the connection easy.

Southern Africa

Uganda’s June – October gorilla trekking period coincides with the best time for a safari in the Kruger Park, Botswana, Zambia & Victoria Falls whereas the December – February trekking season is when Cape Town & the Cape Winelands enjoy their driest & sunniest weather – ask us for more details.

TOP EXPERIENCES

AMAZING WILDLIFE DIVERSITY

1. GO GORILLA TREKKING

Sitting with a habituated gorilla family in their natural surroundings is a once-in-a-lifetime experience: Uganda is one of the best places in Africa to do it.

2. ENJOY A CLASSIC SAFARI

Add on a few days in Queen Elizabeth or Murchison Falls national parks & you’ll enjoy big game viewing as well – elephants, hippos, antelope & Uganda’s famous tree-climbing lions.

3. CHIMPANZEE TREKKING

Uganda’s forests are home to many primates & several rainforest reserves offer chimpanzee trekking. We’d recommend Kibale Forest, also a great destination for birds & butterflies.

4. CRUISE THE RIVER

Combine game viewing & bird watching on a slow cruise along Queen Elizabeth’s Kazinga Channel or take a trip to see the River Nile thunder over Murchison Falls.

5. GO BIRD WATCHING

With a phenomenal bird list of over 1000 species, Uganda is one of the world’s ultimate birding destinations – combine Queen Elizabeth National Park & Kibale Forest for a great mix.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Lukas (Germany)
Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Penni (AU)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.
