More than a century after Winston Churchill referred to it as the "pearl of Africa," Uganda is still off the radar for many travelers. It's a unique destination, where the scenery and wildlife are equally breathtaking—and the only place in the world where mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and tree-climbing lions can all be seen on the same trip! Despite being near the equator, the Rwenzori Mountain range (Africa's highest) remains permanently snowcapped, providing a eye-catching backdrop to the country's lush, jungle terrain.
So journey with MTS to the misty rainforests of Kibale, where you'll spend time tracking chimpanzees and gorillas, and enjoy a classic safari experience in Uganda's Eden-like Queen Elizabeth National Park. Stay in an idyllic tented retreat and treehouse lodge, and go in search of the region's many lions—which can most often be found lounging high in the fig trees.
