Uganda Big Five Safaris



Uganda is among the top safari destinations in East Africa where travelers can spot the big five wild animal species.

Lions prefer the savannah grassland where they can hunt for prey like kobs, zebras, and other animals easily.


Leopard is counted in the big five families as well, leopards have a nocturnal nature, they are sensitive and fierce, leopards are very had to be spotted though they can be seen in the morning while on an early morning game drives at Queen Elizabeth national park, Kidepo valley national park, Murchison falls national park, and Lake Mburo national park.
