Off The Beaten Track Safari,
Trekking Mountains, Primates & Seeing Wildlife in Uganda

Challenge your adventurous spirit with Uganda Off The Beaten Track safari into places not many tourists know about. Hike the mild peaks of Mount Elgon in Eastern Uganda, on the border with Kenya, take the northern route into the Karamoja region, and meet the north’s nomadic pastoralists.

Circle into Africa’s primate capital and spend time with our closest cousins, chimpanzee trekking in Kibale forest. Stare at the rare tree-climbing lions in Uganda’s most famous savannah park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, before challenging yourself on an exciting hike across the pristine Bwindi Impenetrable forest. Getting to the other end of the forest, spend a once in a lifetime with the endangered forest giants, the mountain gorillas, and meet the native pygmies.
