Honeymoon Uganda

Intimate encounters, stunning scenery and a lush landscape – Uganda is the perfect honeymoon destination for those searching for a romantic getaway with a generous helping of adventure. A tapestry of landscapes, it reaches the heady heights of the Rwenzoris, (the tallest mountain range in Africa), the mythical source of the Nile and the continent’s largest lake. From the marvels of the Big Five, roaming the sprawling savannah, to the grace of the gorillas in their misty mountain home, this tiny landlocked country packs a honeymoon punch.

Our experts can help with planning your perfect Uganda honeymoon, from suggesting the best places to stay, for a more private feel, to the best routes to choose and picking the best guides. We'll handle the admin, giving you more time for the wedmin. Our Concierge is on hand should you need any last-minute help or advice, so won't have to lift a finger.

Should your honeymoon wish list include an ape encounter you'll want to head straight to these misty mountain slopes of Virungas, that shelter the world's last remaining mountain gorillas. It's a fight through the rainforest's unforgiving terrain, but the reward is worth the effort - as your gazes meets with a family of some of our closest ape relatives. The most intimate of wildlife encounters, amid newly-wed bliss in the glossy green canopy - what more could you ask for? It's not all gorilla goodness though, from the verdant mountain slopes to the savannah's plains, Uganda is home to many wildlife wonders. A trek in Kibale Forest might be rewarded with a chorus of chimpanzees, while the Kidepo Valley is where you might spot a cheetah prowling for prey.

Tick off seeing the Big Five while on safari in the savannah, where roaming lion prides share the land with rhinos, elephants, buffalo and leopard. Enjoy the animal magic with sunset sundowners, toasting your wonderful wedding and dreamy honeymoon. For a splash of adventure, without wildlife, there's white-water rafting and incredible scenery to be seen - marvel at the mighty Nile squeezing through a 23ft gap at Murchison Falls, before succumbing to some well-earned R&R in a private lodge surrounded by some of Mother Nature's greatest work. What more could you ask for when planning your first trip as man and wife.
