GORILLA & CHIMP SAFARI in Uganda, the “Pearl of Africa”
October 23-November 5, 2017
Uganda Special

We invite you to join us on a Safari in the “Pearl of Africa,” Uganda, including the country’s finest national parks, gorilla reserves and chimpanzee sanctuaries.


Explore the mountain paradise of Africa—named the “Pearl of Africa” by Winston Churchill—including opportunities to look for savannah animals from lions to elephants, plus a profusion of birds and primates.

Tracking gorillas will be a real adventure! We will go in search of gorillas in one of the finest gorilla reserves in the world—Bwindi Impenetrable National Park!

We will look for tree climbing lions on the Ishasha Plains and explore Queen Elizabeth National Park where there is a profusion of wildlife.

Our adventure continues with chimpanzee tracking in Kibale National Park and a visit to Murchison Falls National Park, including a boat trip on the Victoria Nile to the base of Murchison Falls.

We will stop to look for rhinos at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary including their first born “Obama!”

Please join us for an exciting and memorable adventure in Africa!

Leading the safari will be Dr. David Bygott, popular leader of many Betchart safaris in East Africa, including the Tanzania & Gombe trips in 2007. Dr David Bygott is a British naturalist, artist and photographer who has spent half his life in East Africa. During that time he has studied chimpanzee behavior with Jane Goodall, researched lion ecology in the Serengeti, taught zoology at the University of Dar es Salaam, and built a home in a Tanzanian village. Together with his partner and wife, Jeannette Hanby, he has written and illustrated guidebooks in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, and has helped create interpretive displays for visitors in several parks.

David has led several safaris every year since 1978, including taking Betchart groups to the gorillas of Rwanda and the chimpanzees of Gombe. He has lived in the USA for the past ten years, where in between African safaris he is currently involved in monitoring wildlife in Arizona's "Sky Islands". He is ideally suited to interpreting the wonders of Africa to American visitors. He is very excited about this Uganda expedition!

Joining him will be excellent African driver guides. They look forward to sharing the delights of the wildlife of Uganda with you!
