15 Photos to Enjoy a Virtual Trip to Uganda

Not being able to travel is rough. We get it. There is nothing fun about being stuck at home with no plans for the future.

To help things out, we're publishing a virtual trip series where we share 15 of our favorite photos from a previous trip and share some of the backstories behind the images.

For our third entry, we're traveling to Africa to hit up Uganda, a country we explored for 10 days in 2019!

9 Animals We Spotted in Murchison Falls National Park

When you go on a safari in Africa, odds are good you're going to have a favorite spot. That one park that stands out as being leaps and bounds better than the rest.

This is not because the park is actually a better spot, but rather that your experience in the park is the best based on the luck of your itinerary, weather, and chance animal viewings.

In Namibia, ours was Etosha National Park. In Botswana, ours was the Okavango Delta. And on our Uganda safari, ours was Murchison Falls National Park.

While we still did not see the big five (we have never seen a leopard anywhere), we came close, and our animal viewing experience was one of the best we've ever had. Today we wanted to share some of our favorite shots of the beautiful creatures we saw!

Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is a Must Visit in Uganda

As far as Africa safaris are concerned, Uganda one of our favorite trips to date. 

This was not just because we went chimpanzee and gorilla trekking in Uganda, but also because of the other wildlife viewing opportunities at places like Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls National Park.

But out of all of the animals we spotted during our travels around the country, one was favorite was missing: the rhino.

This is because Uganda no longer has any rhinos remaining in the wild, as poaching and other activities rendered them extinct in the country. But conservation efforts are underway to bring their population back, and for those wanting to help out and see these beautiful creatures, you simply must visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary.

Uganda Safari Review – Churchill Safaris is a Wonderful Time

During our Uganda safari, we decided to do something new for us, and that was to take a private tour.

We had traveled Africa in the past both solo and on low-budget group tours, but we never were able to take a high-end safari company with a private and customized itinerary.

In Uganda we finally made this a reality, and did so with a company called Churchill Safaris- a popular organization that offers fully customized tours in central and southern Africa.

In this one, we wanted to share a bit more as to what the experience was like!
