Visiting Uganda

Having look at this website you may have been inspired to visit Uganda yourself. If so here are a few suggestions that might make your planning a bit easier.

 

The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project has a link with Range Land Safaris who not only provide transport support and advice to the Project in Uganda they also finacially support some orphans through primary education with profits from safaris booked through this and other conservation projects.

 

The Project is also in contact with a number of other local safari companies which are run by ex-Uganda Wildlife Authority Rangers, we are happy to offer advice if required.

Range Land Safaris

 

Run by Ronnie Bwambale who has supported the project from the start, Range Land, is a local safari company that specialises in arranging tours of Uganda for any price bracket.

Ronnie is also interested in cultural tourism as well as wildlife and can take you to villages and schools assoicated with our project.

This ensures communities benefit from your visit this amazing country.

Watching Wildlife in Uganda

 

In order to get the best out of your visit to Uganda you should take binoculars, a camera and most importantly wildlife field guides. These are expensive to buy in Uganda.

Don't spend too much on your binoculars and camera and you could them consider donating them and your field guides to young Park Rangers! 

Contact the Project if you would like to do this and we can make sure they get to the right people.

Here are a few of our favourite places to visit.

Other Ugandan National Parks and Reserves

 

Obviously our Project would like you to visit the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, but there are many other National Parks and Nature Reserves in Uganda that are worth visiting.

 

If you are travelling to western Uganda we would strongly recommend reading Andrew Roberts' book 'Uganda's Great Rift Valeey', its a truly excellent book and will greatly enhance your visit to Uganda.

Andrew also contributed to the Brandt guide to Uganda.
