Uganda - Gorillas, chimpanzees and more 2023

This 11 day photo safari focuses on gorilla and chimpanzee photography, although we also have time for a safari and will be in search of the famous shoebill.

By spending a long time with the chimpanzees, having ample opportunity for feedback and tips, and by including two gorilla treks (private for our group), we maximize chances of returning home with great photos.

Furthermore Uganda is famous for being home to the shoe-billed stork in Mabamba Swamp and the tree-climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park. These two locations are on our route, so they complete the trip perfectly.

There are only 5 places available.

Practical info: 

This trip focuses entirely on wildlife photography.

You are 11 days on the spot. Calculate extra days for the international flights!

We have two 4x4 vehicles at our disposal in Queen Elizabeth National Park, giving everybody ample space to photograph comfortably. For the remainder of the trip we will be using one extended 4x4 vehicle as transport between the different locations.

Accommodation is in comfortable to luxury lodges and tented camps. All have private bathroom (shower, toilet), charging facilities, and provide delicious meals.

In mid-January 2022, we finally left for Uganda for the long-awaited confrontation with the chimpanzees and gorillas as the main target. The other stops such as Lake Victoria and Queen Elisabeth National Park are also great. Let's not talk about Corona!
My expectations were beyond all...

For the 3rd time with Ingrid on a photo safari, this time to hospitable Uganda: again very well organized and with perfect guidance ... what more could you wish for?

Uganda was not only unforgettable, educational, exciting and an honor to be there.
For me it was Breathtaking, truly a Magical experience.
It was indescribably good. We enjoyed every moment. Learned a lot about nature and photography.

Everything was perfectly organised and optimised in function of photography. Thanks to the repeated trackings we were able, after extensive personal feedback from Ingrid, to increase the chances of taking good pictures and improve our technique. Ingrid also gave us lots of tips during the...
