Instinct Safaris picked up operations as a small village-based walking eco-safari operator. From Rubuguri village in the Kigezi highlands, we explored the surrounding rain forests, lakes Mutanda and Murehe, and started expeditions to the Virunga volcanoes. Located at the borders to both Rwanda and DR Congo, Instinct Safaris carried out canoeing, hiking, and even mountain biking throughout the region. Even today, most of our eco-safaris concentrate on the border region of these three countries.

Besides mountain gorilla tracking in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda offers ten more national parks. Kibale National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda's largest national park, are among the most popular destinations in the Pearl of Africa. However, journeys to Kidepo Valley National Park, the Rwenzori mountains, Sipi falls, and Mount Elgon, as well as Lake Mburo National Park are also extremely rewarding. Let us introduce you to our safari suggestion or contact us for a completely tailored safari experience in Uganda!

Are you looking for a tour that embraces all of Uganda’s beauty? The country's people, wildlife, and nature. Track the endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat in Bwindi National Park, home to more than half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas. We will also visit Kibale forest, which has the world's densest concentration of primates. Game viewing in Queen Elizabeth National Park will take us face to face with lions, buffaloes, hippos, elephants, and other wildlife.

The Lion’s Prey Journey extends your stay in the Pearl of Africa to thirteen days. Not only will you track the legendary mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and visit the tree-climbing lions in Ishasha among a range of other wildlife in Queen Elizabeth National Park, but we will also experience the Murchison falls, find rhinos at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, and meet the chimps in Kibale. Thirteen days on safari will give us the time we need to explore Uganda, the Pearl of Africa.
