Travel in luxury with Lark Tours through the best of Uganda. Witness the power of Murchison Falls on the Nile River, track chimpanzees in Kibale Forest National Park, and embark on safaris in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Finally we track rare and elusive Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, one of the few places in all of Africa where we are able to encounter Gorillas in their natural habitat.
