The Great Lakes region is undoubtedly one of the most diverse areas in Africa. Uganda has a wealth of primates, over 1000 bird species with 27 endemics. Excellent game viewing includes Uganda Kob, Giant Forest Hog, Forest & Cape Buffalo, as well as a healthy population of lion, leopard, elephant and antelope – it also boasts some of the largest Nile crocodiles you will ever see!
Uganda is made up of dramatic mountains – the Ruwenzoris are permanently ice-capped – lush green hillsides, dark forests full of birds and primates, enormous lakes and rivers, dormant volcanoes, and open plains dotted with game.
For the fishermen there is the challenge of catching Nile Perch. Our team also run trips to the Lake Albert Delta, World Famous Nile Fishing Safaris, Sunset Cruises and Private Charter Cruises
On all our safaris we offer personalised service – both during the planning phases as well as on safari. We meet our guests before their trip to discuss all the details, and we are available at any time of day or night to assist them.
We have one of the largest and modern safari fleets in Uganda including several custom-built and new model 4×4 Landcruisers driven by some of Uganda’s best and most experienced safari guides.
Wild Frontiers offer a selected range of Set Departure small group (2-7 guests) safari routes to popular destinations and attractions around Uganda. We will happily design any style of safari to suit your personal preferences and budget, and will select the perfect mix of activities and leisure-time to suit you.
Our guides are seasoned professionals, and they really enjoy sharing their wealth of knowledge with our guests. If you have a specific interest, do let us know at the time of booking so we can allocate a specialist guide to you.
For keen ‘birders’ there is also the option of going on forest walks with local birding specialists, particularly in areas like Bwindi and Kibale where endemics are found, and local knowledge is key in finding these elusive birds.
Lodges, camps and hotels are selected for their location, quality of service, cuisine, management and overall value. We also have our own safari camps in pristine areas, and boating operations on Lake Victoria and on the Nile River at Murchison Falls.
Gorilla & Chimpanzee Permits
Most people visit Uganda/Rwanda to enjoy gorilla/chimpanzee tracking. There is a very strict policy in place iro purchasing gorilla permits.
It is critical to ensure you have pre-purchased permits in place, which we organise for you, before you finalise your entire safari and issue airtickets.
Permit numbers are limited, and we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
We also operate into Rwanda should you wish to track gorillas in two or more areas.
