From the Big Five species, large and small water & land animals, you find some of the most iconic Africa wildlife species in Uganda’s pristine national parks. Popular species you encounter while on a game drive safari in the Uganda savannah parks include; lion, elephants, buffaloes, warthogs, bushbucks, Uganda Kob, impala, waterbucks, leopards, giraffes, zebra, hartebeests, hippos plus a variety of colorful birds species.
A game drive is the perfect way to encounter these species in the comfort of a 4×4 safari vehicle with an open roof, the best time to hit the game tracks during the early mornings when early risers take the field as well as the late evening hours when night hunters retreat to rest and nocturnal are coming out from their hideouts. A game drive not only gets you close to the wild animals but also offers you an opportunity to explore the park, learn more about the wildlife daily behavior, the historical background of the protected area plus impressive story telling from your professional tour guide.
