The Harvard Perspective
Explore Uganda—the “pearl of Africa” as described by Sir Winston Churchill—on this 13-day safari, which combines wildlife viewing with local conservation and education projects. Highlights include thrilling encounters with the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and the chimpanzees of Kibale National Park. Explore the River Nile near its source during two days in Murchison Falls National Park, renowned for its many bird species as much as its famous falls. Enjoy game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park and take a boat cruise on the Kazinga Channel. Visit an NGO that supports conservation through education and health projects and join school children in building beehives to help keep elephants out of their fields. This magnificent country is rewarding for the first-time traveler or a veteran of African safaris.
Inoculations are required for travel to Uganda. Plan ahead and consult with your doctor regarding which vaccinations you will need for your trip. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Uganda page for more information.
