Adventure Vacations and Safari Tours in Uganda
When it comes to adventure, nothing beats a coming face to face with a giant mountain gorilla silverback, eight times the power of a grown man, in its natural habitat. Although an encounter with the over 100 strong family of chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park must rank as the truest definition of ‘a walk on the wild side’- it could stop your heart! To partake the wildest white water rafting among the rapids of the magnificent River Nile, the world’s longest, is the true epitome of an adrenaline pumping river adventure and we think that a bungee jumping thrill over the river Nile must be what real ‘dare-devilism’ is about.
You can climb Claudius Ptolemy’s fabled ‘Mountains of the Moons’, the Ruwenzori and marvel at their ice capped peaks astride the equator on a 7-day adventure with experienced guides; or hike the fringes of the famous Mount Elgon on the Uganda/Kenya border. If you take a launch boat on the Nile, in Murchison Falls National Park, come up close to the base of the glorious Murchison Falls itself where the mighty river forces its entire self through a narrow 7m cleft to tumble 43m down in a thunderous show of mighty power; without a doubt some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. You could also take a hike up to the top of the falls and marvel at the falls from above, there just so many things you could do – Uganda must truly be the adventure capital of the world. Please contact us!

Enjoy launch cruises on the Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth National Park or step out to mix and mingle with local Ugandans on a night outing in Kampala and feel the pulse of this buzzing capital city; Ugandans love to have a giant amount of fun – you’re more than welcome to join!
Paradise Adventure Vacations is highly conscious of the need to protect the natural environment and valuable cultural heritage. We have therefore initiated a number of projects to maximize the benefits tourism can bring to local communities. One of these projects is the cooperation with a local family in Nyakahangi Village in Kibiito Bunyangabu District, where guests can learn more about the culture of the different tribes and interact with the local people. A visit will support community-based initiatives, varying from the construction of schools to the supply of clean drinking water and the making of traditional handicrafts.
