This unmistakable stripped horse is common among the wide spread throughout east and southern Africa. Zebras are often seen on Uganda safari in large herds but their basic social unit is the small relatively stable family group which typically consists of a stallion up to five mares and their collective off spring. These Uganda safari offers contain horse like body shape though their manes have short, erect hair, coats stripped and tails tufted at the tip. The shinning coats reflect over 70% of incoming heat and it is believed that the stripes assist these animals to with stand strong solar radiation. This helps them to survive in the hot savannah ecosystems that is sometimes challenging to travellers on safari in Uganda . The back and white setting of the coat act as camouflage titled disruptive coloration which breaks up the body outline. Though highly visible during day time, it can help at dawn and in the evening when their predators are most active. Burchell&#


Rwanda has been well known not only for her natural offers like gorilla tracking in Volcanoes National Park, Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe forest National Park and wildlife safaris in Akagera National Park but also for her culture. The Rwandese culture is quite stunning and interesting to encounter on Rwanda safari . However, this has always been inadequate for the Rwandan community living in diaspora prompting them to revitalize their culture abroad. The Rwandese in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey with the support of the Rwandan High Commission and the high ranking officials resolved to run a project focusing on Rwandan cultural activities. The main intention is to promote cohesion and encourage the community of different ages to revive their attachment to the Rwandan culture. The projected activities in this venture include; traditional dancing, learning Kinyarwanda, Rwandan Poetry and other instrumental traditional values. The Rwandese in diaspora acknowledges th

The people of Buganda love their kingdom and always praise it which therefore becomes a must see for the tourists on There are a lot of attractions in Buganda although some like the ‘Amasiiro’ that is the tombs were destroyed by the unknown people. However there are still traditional things that tourists always see while on their safaris in Uganda . Tourists get to know more about the Buganda Kingdom when on their Uganda safari as they are explained to everything they may love to know. The Katikiro (prime Minister) of Buganda Kingdom has therefore fundraised money to put back the destroyed tombs and also build up more attractions in the kingdom. This has and will continuously attract more safaris to Uganda as many people will be


Uganda – the pearl of Africa is not only gifted by nature but also the beauty of her people. The beauty of her people is not only depicted in the physical appearance but also through the highest degree of hospitality that they contain. This is evidently seen on Uganda safari. The drivers of tourism industry have gone ahead to arrange the ways of exposing the beauty of Ugandans to those on Uganda safari or those planning to undertake safaris to Uganda . Therefore, it’s no wonder that Miss Tourism Uganda 2014 is drawing closer today. Titled “the wonders of Uganda”, the forthcoming beauty race will be focused on showcasing attractions that can be encountered while on Uganda safaris . First auditions will be organized at regional level of Busoga, Buganda, Kigezi, Ankole, Bugisu, West Nile among others of which representatives will be selected to the national contest.

The cultural attractions range from Museums and historical sites, Local people and festivities. These attractions are the basis for wildlife safaris and gorilla trekking . Of recent, Uganda has received some attacks particularly in the Bundibugyo region which have resulted into registered killings and posed fear not only among the domestic travellers but also international Uganda safari undertakers thus threatening safaris to Uganda. This has been attributed to inter-tribal crisis between the Bakonjo and the Bamba who inhabit the Bundibugyo region. However this has been brought to end. In a press statement issued by the Minister of Internal affairs,

Mpambire located along the Kampala – Masaka road which continues to the Uganda safari destinations of south western Uganda via Mbarara can be wholesomely branded the epicenter of drum making in Uganda. Mpambire is entirely local and authentic African village with close to 1000 occupants whose life is centered on the activity of drum making alongside crop cultivation for sustenance as it can be seen while on safari in Uganda . Traditionally, Mpambire used to craft the royal drums for the Kingdom of Buganda but as things kept on changing and with opportunities presented by the increased safari visits in Uganda , the local crafts men had to diversify their market to satisfy the interests of Uganda safari undertakers. The concept of drum making is by no means ordinary as it involves high degree of dexterity and keen consideration of the raw materials. No wonder the local craftsmanship skills are admired by everybody on Uganda safari. With its position en route to safari

The world’s second largest antelope is the common or the cape eland which measures over 1.8m in height and which can be bulkier than even a buffalo is one of the most treasured wildlife products on Uganda safaris . First pronounced in 1766 by Simon Peter Pallas, this Uganda safari offer belongs to the family Bovidae and a mature male can stretch up 942 kg. The average range of their size is between 500 – 600 kg for males and 340 – 445 for females making it the second to the giant eland in terms of largest antelopes in the world.  The eland – which can be seen on safari in Uganda , has rather bovine appearance; fawn brown in color with large dewlap and short, spiraled horns and in some cases light white stripes on its sides. Like any other antelope species usually encountered on Uganda safari , the eland are primarily herbivorous with grass and leaves forming their delicacy. Though they live in herds which can even stretch up to 500 animals, they do not designate territ


The Katwe explosion crater is positioned in the Uganda’s prime national park of Queen Elizabeth – the most visited wildlife safari park in Uganda. It is believed that this significant Uganda safari feature came into existence as a result of violent eruptions that took place approximately 8000 – 10,000 years ago alongside other famous crater fields of Bunyaruguru in Kichwamba and Ndali Kasenda crater near Fort portal all in western Uganda and can be evidently seen while undertaking safari in Uganda .  Today these crater fields stand as splendid scenic areas with a range of flora and fauna dwellings around them something worth encountering while planning your safari to Uganda . Regardless of the fellow volcanic feature that were formed as a result of heaping of ash ejected from underground, the explosion craters were as a result of strong eruptions that could sweep the ash far away leaving an open hollows that were later filled with water to form the re-known crater lakes


Located on Kasubi hill over 4 Km from the Kampala city center, Kasubi tombs are a great Uganda safari offer as they stand as an ancient heritage of the people of Buganda and also give a general representation of the traditional setting of the entire people of Uganda. The Kasubi tombs are the burial grounds for the Kings of Buganda of which four Kings lay in rest and these include;  Muteesa I (1835–1884), Mwanga II (1867–1903), Daudi Chwa II (1896–1939) and Sir Edward Muteesa II (1924–196) making it a rich product to be visited while on Uganda safari . The unfortunate thing about this Uganda safari product is that in 2010, it was swept out by fire that is still uncertain up to today. This greatly affected the safari visits to this world heritage site as recognized by UNESCO. It used not only to provide a starting point or an ending point of many Uganda safaris ; it also provided the core product of the Kampala city safari tour. Apparently the site is under construction wi

Rhinos are one of the Big five land animals alongside Lions, leopard, Elephant and Buffalo.

The fate was later changed with the re-introduction of White Rhinos in 2005 in the gazetted Ziwa Rhino sanctuary as part of conservation efforts directed towards increasing safari visits to Uganda . White Rhinos in Ziwa sanctuary provide the Rhino tracking encounter on Uganda safari and are mostly visited en route to Murchison falls national park - the largest wildlife safari destination in Uganda. The Rhinos in Ziwa sanctuary are known by name and are being bred to be later released to wilderness. Rhin
