the pearl of africa

Uganda is a country known for its stunning scenery, friendly locals, and abundant wildlife. If you’re looking for an authentic African adventure, then a photographic safari in Uganda is just what you need.

Your safari will start in Kibale National Park, where you’ll embark on an exciting and special Bobby-Jo Safaris chimp tracking expedition. You will be able to photograph these magnificent creatures as they swing from tree to tree, groom each other, and play. The experience is elemental and simply breathtaking.

Next stop, Bobby-Jo Safaris will transport you to Queen Elizabeth National Park, where you’ll go on a game drive in search of the park’s elusive wildlife. From majestic elephants to graceful antelopes, and maybe even a lion or two, there’s always something special to see. Bobby-Jo Safaris has arranged for a special boat ride on the Kazinga Channel, where you’ll be sure to capture some stunning shots of hippos, crocodiles, and a variety of waterbirds.

In Mabamba Swamp, you’ll encounter the rare and elusive Shoebill Stork. This prehistoric-looking bird is a favourite among photographers, and you’re sure to get some amazing shots.

The highlight of your safari will be spending an hour with the majestic mountain gorillas. This intimate encounter will change your life as you watch these gentle giants go about their daily lives. It’s an experience you’ll never, ever forget.

In Uganda you’ll be mesmerized by the breathtaking landscapes, the kind people, and the diverse wildlife that call this country home. So, grab your camera and join Bobby-Jo Safaris on this unforgettable journey through Uganda’s most iconic destinations.
