VISIT UGANDA
Uganda, often called the “Pearl of Africa,” boasts a rich tapestry of wildlife and diverse habitats, from the lush rainforests of Bwindi to the expansive savannahs of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Home to half of the world’s mountain gorillas, Uganda is a conservation beacon, diligently protecting these impressive creatures alongside elephants, lions and a multitude of bird species. The country’s conservation efforts are intertwined with the livelihoods of local communities who play a crucial role in safeguarding natural resources through sustainable practices and eco-tourism initiatives. Together, Uganda’s wildlife and communities exemplify a harmonious co-existence of humans and nature.

Create your own
private journey

Rise with the sun to seek Ishasha’s notorious tree-climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Wile away a lazy afternoon drifting down stream in the dappled light of Kazinga Channel, disturbed only by the wallowing hippos and birdsong overhead. Sit with gentle giants, observing the familiar interactions of mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or chimpanzees in Kyambura Gorge. Reach out to our expert team to begin creating your specialist discovery of this rich, abundant landscape.

impact

Our Impact Pledge is our commitment to support the advancement of pioneering conservation projects through direct donations with every journey. In 2023, and our second calendar year, we raised and directed over $50,000 to grassroot conversation projects. We do this by created hosted and private conservation travel experiences in the Democratic Republic of Congo and around the world.

OUR FOCUS - THE IBERÁ NATIONAL PARK:

This extraordinary wetland, the largest in Argentina, is home to 30% of the biodiversity in the country including endangered species such as the pampas and marsh deer, the maned wolf and grassland birds like the strange-tailed tyrant.

In 2005, what was to become one of the largest rewilding programs in the Americas was started, with the goal of restoring keystone species that had been extirpated from Iberá through hunting and habitat loss and were extinct in the region, the Province or, in some cases, the country. 

As the rewilding program developed, the cultural identity of Iberá began to recover alongside the ecosystems and natural processes, impacting a total population of 100,000 people who surround the park.

Today, Iberá stands as one of the world’s most successful ongoing conservation missions.
