ACTIVE ADVENTURE SPOTS OF UGANDA – UGANDA SAFARI NEWS
Though positioned majorly on a low lying plateau, the destination Uganda features extreme points where adventure Uganda Safaris are always undertaken.
The strong impermeable rocks have for centuries stood in the course of the mighty Rivers like the world’s longest Nile River forming falls, rapids and cliffs generating ground for white water rafting and bungee jumping. Adventure travellers on Safaris in Uganda have always found such activities in Jinja very memorable!
Besides the water activities, Uganda features other incredible sites such as the third highest Mountain in Africa – the Rwenzori rising to 5109m above sea level, Mount Elgon – the 4th highest in East Africa and the Virunga Volcanoes namely; Muhabura, Sabyinyo and Gahinga which provide an unusual encounter with the African peaks. Active adventure vacation Uganda safari undertakers at times opt to embark on the 8 days hike to summit Margarita peak on Mount Rwenzori. Unlike the adventure Kenya Safari destination of Mount Kenya and adventure Tanzania Safari destination of Mount Kilimanjaro which are free standing, Mount Rwenzori is Mountain range marked with series of ridges that makes the trek beyond the ordinary.
The Zip lining adventure in Mabira Central Forest Reserve is an exciting Uganda tour experience where one enjoys a bird’s eye view of the incredible natural ecosystem marked with lush flora and a range of bird species and primates.
The Uganda gorilla trekking safari destinations of Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks feature one of the best adventure treks on the African continent. Like for the case of Bwindi, the landscape is rugged marked with narrow valleys and steep slopes that are densely forested forming a rather challenging but rewarding adventure experience as one sets out in quest for Mountain Gorillas that are critically endangered world over.
