Conservation and development

Instinct Safaris is a strong contributor of natural conservation and social development in the Great Lakes region. Direct training of skilled safari guides from the local communities is equally important to us as continuous support of health services and educational projects through the Instinct Safaris Foundation.


On our Lion's Prey Journey, expect to experience the striking beauty of Uganda, which carries the nickname Pearl of Africa for good reason. On our thirteen-day adventure, we plan to visit the dense Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in southwestern Uganda. Tracking and getting face-to-face with the rare and endangered mountain gorillas is a rewarding adventure. Rhinos, elephants, crocodiles, buffalo, chimpanzees, lions, and even leopards will be seen in their respective natural habitats in Kibale Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Murchison Falls National Park. 

Highlights on this tour include a whole-day mountain gorilla tracking experience, game viewing in morning, day, and night settings in Uganda's famous national parks, canoe excursions, chimpanzee tracking, meeting and interacting with the local communities in different villages, and full-board accommodation.
