Of all places in the world, one sparks the interest of many. The land of gorgeous vipers, majestic great apes and vulnerable jungle ecosystems... The wildest country of Eastern Africa, the pearl of Africa, Uganda.
During this expedition we’ll tackle the thick wilds of Uganda in search for some of the most incredible wildlife on the planet: elephants, lions, chimpanzees, mountain gorillas, chameleons, monitor lizards, arthropods and many… many snake species.
The most iconic species on our target list: The gaboon viper, the rhinoceros viper and their natural hybrid (!), hairy bush vipers, variable bush vipers, the forest cobra, the black mamba, the Jameson’s mamba,… and more.
We’ll head out into the deep jungle with some of East Africa’s finest local guides, set up camps in the forest on several occasions, climb lush mountainous areas and chill out in nice eco-lodges and hotels.
Always wanted to see gorilla’s in the wild? Find a gaboon viper? Spot wild chameleons? Tick off some of the Big Five? Camp in the forest or just enjoy the best of the best in Africa?
Join us on this once-in-a-lifetime trip. You won’t regret it…
