In 1907, Winston Churchill traveled to Uganda and was so impressed with what he found there that he wrote a book about his journey and popularized the phrase “the Pearl of Africa.” On this Borton Overseas Signature Journey, hosted by Africa Specialist Andrea Berger, you can discover for yourself just what made Churchill so enthused. This privately-guided program will take our small group to some of Uganda’s national parks, which showcase a diversity of birds and wildlife, and provide unique opportunities to explore by boat and on foot.
A bucket-list item for many travelers — trekking to see endangered mountain gorillas — is the jewel in the crown of experiences included in this trip. Tracking chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park adds another layer to this primate focused tour. Our journey through the rolling savannahs, the vibrant villages, and verdant hillsides of the country will reveal beautiful facets of Uganda: the Nile River, mountain gorillas, tea estates, tree-climbing lions, the Batwa forest culture, and so much more. We think you will return home with sparkling memories and dazzling experiences more valuable than any precious gem!
