Look forward to...

Looking into the soulful eyes of the world's largest primate is a wildlife experience of a lifetime.

Flying over Kidepo Valley National park and being wowed by the volcanic mountains, harsh semi-desert and lush river valleys criss-crossed by small streams.

Watching the sun drop over Lake Mburo... a true rural African treat.

Stargazing from your outdoor bathtub at Apoka Lodge.

This is Uganda, but not as you know it. The "pearl of Africa", as Winston Churchill called it, is set to become the most luxurious safari destination for the discerning wildlife connoisseur. Get there before everyone else does.

You'll start off in Kampala and to fully appreciate Uganda's breathtaking diversity, you'll explore three other corners of the country, flying privately from lodge to lodge in utter comfort. What makes our Ugandan safari so spectacular is there's not just the Big Five, but the Big Six. This is the land of the colossal Mountain Gorilla: stuff of legends, and the final frontier of heart pounding adventure.

Start your experience in Kidepo, at become lunch) as and when you please, on foot or by jeep, to track elephants, buffalo, zebra, lions, leopards and more. Seriously, don't forget your camera.

Now it's time for the thick, steamy jungles of the aptly named Bwindi Impenetrable National Park - home to over half of the world's extremely endangered Mountain Gorilla. Venturing out from Uganda's newest boutique retreat, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge, spend your days tracking Bwindi's carefully habituated gorilla families.

Nothing can prepare you for the moment you see their enormous frames emerging from the shadows of the rainforest.

Finally, drive east through Uganda's stunning countryside to the wetlands of Mburo to chill out on a supreme water safari. Settle in to your luxury tented lodge (the picture perfect Mihingo Lodge) surrounded by thick acacia woodland and slide into your infinity pool to watch the grazing herds in the valley below. Your final safari days will be spent spying on a flurry of water loving animals like hippos, crocs and waterbuck. Take a private boat tour of the lake for your final farewell to our spectacular Ugandan experience -- the height of luxury, and the last word in adventure.
