Kenya and Uganda might be neighbouring countries but the safari experiences, climate and geography differ greatly. Kenya is a better destination than Uganda when it comes to quality Big Five sightings and plains wildlife in general. Its
game reserves tend to be far larger than their counterparts in Uganda, and to offer a more varied selection of lodges and tented camps.

Equally, Uganda offers several attractions not found in Kenya or indeed most other safari destinations. Foremost among these is the opportunity to track mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and chimpanzees in the likes of Kibale National Park.
