Gorilla safaris in Uganda are one of the best tourist experiences one can ever get in a tourist destination. A visit to these apes in the jungles of Bwindi impenetrable forest and Mgahinga gives people a lifetime memorable experience. The mountain gorillas are endangered species that can only be found in the Virunga area in Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo
The great migration starts from Tanzania across to Kenya and back to Tanzania. The total migrating number is estimated around 1.7 million wildebeest. The migration is circular and continuous every year but it some how largely depends on the seasons and rainfall patterns. The wildebeest in the course of their journey from Serengeti to Maasai Mara cover a distance approximate to 1,800 miles across the Mara River.
Protection and conservation of mountain gorilla habitant has been done through a number of conservation programs like resettling the Batwa pygmies from the forests to reduce on the cases of gorilla habitant encroachment, the mountain gorilla naming ceremony in Rwanda held every year where newly born mountain gorillas are given names and monitored closely, regulating the number of tourists tracking the gorillas to 8 a day and spending only one hour with them.
Hippos are among the unique wildlife species one cannot fail to see on a Uganda wildlife safari expedition. These land and water dwellers are among the largest land mammals on the planet getting the 2rd position after elephants. Hippos are close relatives of whales and spend most of their time in water and it’s where they reproduce. The word hippopotamus is a Greek word meaning a water horse and yes its true hippos can be termed as water horses because of their much love for staying in water.
