In the Wild on road (A road trip collection safari - 14 Days)

“Africa - you can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slope lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the mid day heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primodial, rocked in the cradle of the world” – Jodi Picoult. This is indeed true of Uganda. On this collection safari, you are sure to see the iconic BIG FIVE – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – have long dominated the list of must-sees on a Ugandan safari.
