Uganda features all of the wildlife you will see in Tanzania and Kenya. It is also one of the last refuges of the endangered and majestic mountain gorilla. With that in mind, our Uganda safaris will visit the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (home of the mountain gorilla), Kibale Forest National Park (home to chimpanzees, the red colobus monkey and the rare L’Hoest’s monkey), Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls, Lake Mburo National Park and other locations.

Like its neighbours Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda experiences 2 rainy seasons per year, the first extending from March through early June and the second lasting from late October to early December. However, because Uganda does not border the Indian Ocean like its neighbours there is nowhere in the country where it gets terribly hot. The best time for a safari in Uganda is considered to be mid-June to mid-October.

The WHO and Ugandan government recommend that visitors get vaccinated for:

  • Hepatitis A+B
  • Yellow fever
  • Meningitis
  • Typhoid

There is currently no requirement that visitors on Uganda safari holidays in 2022 be vaccinated against covid-19. Visitors will, however, need to show a negative PCR test result obtained less than 3 days before entering the country. Also, malaria is a fairly significant risk and it is recommended that visitors obtain prescription anti malarial medication from their doctor before coming.

nded that all people coming on Kenya safari holidays be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus (covid-19) before travelling to Kenya, although it is not mandatory. It is, however, necessary that you have a negative covid-19 PCR test no more than 3 days before arriving. Since there is a risk of malaria it is also recommended that travellers take prescription malaria pills in the days before arriving in Kenya, while in the country and for a time after returning home.

Everyone who enters Uganda for the purposes of Uganda safari tours must have a valid visitor/tourist visa. Due to recent changes, however, it is no longer possible to obtain a visa upon arrival in the country. Instead, visitors must use the country’s online visa application that is available here.

On the application page, you will find all the information regarding documents you need to apply for the visa and to enter the country. Remember, as is the case with every country, Ugandan immigration reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone for any reason they see fit.
