National Geographic defines Uganda as 'Africa's new frontier' and names it in its Best of the World 2013!
Every year the editors of the National Geographic Traveler choose twenty destinations that they think are home to the best trips in the world for the coming year. Following on from last year's accolades from the Lonely Planet, Uganda has found itself once again in the spotlight, being selected as a world highlight for another year.
As National Geographic put it: "The land mixes savanna, enormous lakes, rain forests, and the glacier-clad Rwenzori Mountains, one of Africa’s tallest ranges. The headwaters of the Nile originate here, then burst through a cleft in the rocks at Murchison Falls. Uganda’s parade of animals is amazingly diverse. Hippos graze along the shores of Lake Edward while lions lounge in the trees of Ishasha, in Queen Elizabeth National Park. The star in Bwindi is the mountain gorilla, a species down to about 720 animals visible in their tiny habitat."
Of course here at Volcanoes Safaris we are not suprised by Uganda's triumph as the country has so much to offer!
For one of the best safaris to experience the highlights of Uganda we recommend our 7 day, Gorillas, Wildlife and Chimps safari! We are also happy to remind you the opening of new scheduled flights that will make Uganda more accessible to tourists than ever before!

Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
