The Pearl Of Africa

From North to South, Uganda offers a variety of lodges and camps fit for every traveler.

This landlocked country is situated in eastern and central Africa, bordered in the east by Kenya, in the north by South Sudan, by the Democratic Republic of Congo in the west and by Rwanda and Tanzania in the south. The southern part of the country includes a substantial portion of Lake Victoria and Uganda lies almost completely within the Nile basin. Although generally equatorial, Uganda’s climate is not uniform as the altitude modifies the climate, but temperatures rarely climb to 90°F during the day or drop to 40°F at night.

Southern Uganda is wetter, with rain generally spreading throughout the year, but mainly occurring in March to June and November to December. Further to the north, a dry season gradually emerges so that January and February are much drier than the rest of the year.  Specialty game animals include a variety of endemic species, such as Uganda kob, Nile buffalo and Jackson’s hartebeest. Although not endemic to Uganda, this is the prime location to collect exceptional East African sitatunga.

The hunting season is from January through November, however, the best time to hunt buffalo and hartebeest is during the months of December to end of April. All other species may be hunted year-round.
