Uganda with Wild Frontiers

Wild Frontiers opened up its Uganda operation in 1994, running a selection of scheduled departures ranging from 6 to 10days, exploring the diversity of the country. With such a vast country to explore it is worthwhile doing the 10-day Classic Uganda Safari visiting the top regions such as Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for gorilla trekking, Queen Elizabeth National Park for tree-climbing lions, and Kibale Forest for chimpanzee trekking.

There is something for everyone in Uganda, whether you want a slow-paced safari like the Ultimate Uganda Private Safari or an adventurous one such as Active Uganda safari, combining the best of Southern Uganda with a climb up Mt. Gahinga Volcano as well as exploring the ancient Batwa trails before trekking gorillas in Bwindi.

Five reasons why you should travel with Wild Frontiers:

  • Incredibly knowledgeable guides
  • Own and operate their own camps and lodges
  • Operate their own fleet of vehicles and boats, with all appropriate insurances
  • Comprehensive H&S with all required COVID-protocol  measures in place
  • Family owned and operated with over 25 years experience

MD David Reading was fortunate enough to travel to Uganda for the first time in 2014 on an educational with Wild Frontiers to gain knowledge of the destination, and also to see its diversity of national parks and cultures. David recalls a special moment when he was trekking through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, up and down hills and valleys, trying to keep up with the moving troop in front of them. “It is surprising that for such large animals can move through the tricky forest so incredibly quickly, but after an hour of trying to make contact with them we finally came up to the troop. Being so close to gorillas is something I never thought I would experience, I sat watching two babies using the thick brush as a jungle gym. It was amazing to see how similar they play as children – just like us”.

Wild Frontiers have been the pioneers in creating itineraries that get the most out of each destination they represent, and they have done just that with their operation in Uganda. Going forward into 2021 they plan on showing the travel trade exactly how good their camps and operations are when they announce their educational trips. As soon as the dates are finalised Talking Stick will notify all partners and hope they join in on what will be an incredible experience.
