  • Explore a new landscape

What to expect

  • Terrain

    Experience the beautiful landscapes of Uganda from gushing waterfalls and crater lakes to rainforests, snow-capped mountains, and vast African savannas. One of the tallest mountain ranges in Africa with peaks over 5000m and impenetrable forests gives you plenty of opportunity to spot wildlife and feel totally remote in the vast African wilderness.

  • Weather

    Uganda has short wet seasons and is relatively dry the rest of the year. The altitude and terrain do have a big impact on the weather as the cloud forests will feel cool and damp all year round.

  • Culture

    Uganda’s culture is rich and diverse with over 100 languages spoken. Cities such as Kampala offer a wide variety of activities. The streets are continually thronging with shoppers, hawkers, and the most mind-boggling packed bus and taxi parks you are ever likely to see. Outside of the cities ancient traditions and ways of life take over and you will be immersed in some fascinating tribal cultures.

We’re always happy to talk travel and would love to find out more about your ideas.

Please do call or email us for more information, to organise a first meeting, or even just for a chat. We’ll be delighted to hear from you.
