How To Plan The Best 2021-2022 Photo Safari For Uganda

1. Which Are The Top Locations For A Photographic Safari In Uganda?

Key Takeaways

  • Recording the habits and behaviors of mountain gorillas and watching them feed and tend the babies
  • Capturing images of the diverse fauna in land and river parks including the stark but picturesque landscape of Kidepo Valley and also the glorious beaches and waters of the iconic Lake Victoria
  • Photographing chimpanzee families and other primate as they forage for food and travel in the forests of Uganda
Uganda has a wide range of unique subjects to capture with a camera. For instance, a primate excursion to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park will reward you with a chance to view—and photograph—their magnificent mountain gorillas, among the last of their kind in the heart of Africa. Under the guidance of the expert or your own expertise, you’ll be able to capture perfect shots and videos, even in dim jungle light, of a silverback thumping his chest, grooming others, or displaying his teeth to warn off intruders. You might record a gorilla’s perfect technique for peeling the skin off bamboo shoots to get to the tender, edible stuff underneath. Or even snap a baby gorilla as he peeks at you from his mother’s arms or behind the safety of a silverback.

If you choose to travel through Kibale National Park, you could fill your camera with loads of pictures of the wild chimpanzees swinging in the trees overhead. Enjoy the enchanting experience of watching and photographing these lively creatures leaping from tree to tree as they forage for food. In addition to the high probability of tracking down the chimpanzees, this park is also known for the many other primates that abound here — a total of 13 species. Take your time photographing these fascinating animals, some of which are rare.

Queen Elizabeth National Park, with its fabulous variety of avian life, is another favorite for photographers. Tour the Kazinga Channel armed with your camera to capture fantastic shots of hippos wallowing in the shallows and crocodiles gaping on the sandbanks. Take your time snapping idyllic shots of sunset as it bathes the channel in lovely golden light.

Your photographic safari in Uganda would not be complete without a trip to Murchison Falls National Park. Watching the mighty Nile River gushing through a narrow cleft in the rocks, listening to the roar of the waters, and delighting in the clouds of mist rising above the falls, creating an eternal rainbow—these are only some of the awe-inspiring experiences you’ll be able to record for a lifetime of memories. This is in addition to photographing big cats, large mammals, and birds on the Nile River and Delta of Murchison.

The stark remote outback of Kidepo Valley National Park is yet another photographer’s haven affording exclusivity and seclusion away from hordes of tourists and safari vehicles. The sight of vast green and golden savannah grasslands, with their rocky crags and swamplands, will fill you with wonder. Capture the arid beauty of the landscape, flora, and its fauna on a digital film, envy for other photographers alongside an appreciation of your hardy endeavors in a challenging wilderness environment.

2. Get Assistance & Expertise Of Professional Photographic Guides In Uganda

Key Takeaways

  • Tapping into the expertise of professional photography guides and coaches to learn how to zoom, focus, and capture fast-moving creatures on camera
  • Making videos and capture imagines using your DSLR camera features to assess the right distance and blur lengths to freeze special moments
  • When required, enhancing images and improving exposure and balance and shifting color values using your preferred photo app
Photography can be an intricate art, and when you are trying to capture the moods of the gorillas or chimpanzees of Uganda in low light conditions with fast moving subjects, you will need the expertise of an experienced photographer guide or a coach on site. While showing you how to best take pictures in the dim light of the forest floor, he will help you get the clearest of images with the best focus. As an amateur photographer, you can benefit from the tutelage of an instructor for custom tracking, focusing, and zooming in on birds, primates, or other smaller animals with their young ones.

Whether you wish to take static shots or elaborate videos, your guide will be there with you all the way, ensuring you get the images you want, with techniques explained in easy-to-follow terms that will make your digital experiences in Uganda a delight. Your safari holiday can be a great opportunity to learn how to use filters when taking landscape images or how to assess the right distance for flash images of wildlife activities. Using blur lengths to add a dramatic touch to moving shots, balancing light and exposure to match the lighting conditions, and freezing shutter speed for capturing a stunning moment — these are only a few of the expert skills you will learn.

Once you have the pictures, you can use various computer photo apps to enhance and balance, improve exposure, and shift color values to best represent the moments you have witnessed. Once you take a photographic safari in Africa, we promise you will be back for many more.

EAST AFRICA SAFARI BOOKING & TOUR HOLIDAY IDEA UGANDA FOR 2021-2022

We recommend visiting Bwindi for your gorilla safari trek, and combining it with Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls, and Kibale (chimpanzee safari) alongside your city tour visits of Kampala and Entebbe.

You may optionally extend out to other wilderness areas such as Mgahinga to track down golden monkeys and gorillas in the same park, Jinja for whitewater rafting on the Nile River, and Semliki, Lake Mburo or Kidepo for an offbeat wildlife tour.

You can end your vacation on the beach at Lake Victoria or even extending out to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar or Lamu, or even Mombasa.
