Uganda is the home of the mountain gorilla safari but there are other national parks and game reserves in the country that are also well worth a visit.
Such as the Queen Elizabeth National Park where you could encounter the resident tree climbing lions and unique bird life, Kibale for tracking chimpanzees and Murchison Falls to see the origin of the Nile river.

There is no official body in Uganda that does grading and assessment certification for safari guides like there are in some other African countries. The Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA) is a company where guides can recieve training and certification. The Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) which is a semi-autonomous government agency that conserves and manages Uganda’s wildlife also provides training and courses for guides. Tourism degrees and diplomas are also offered by tertiary education institutions.
Requirements to be a legal safari guide in this country include having a certificate or qualification from a recognized training institution in tour guiding, training in first aid and a valid driving permit.
So for individuals to qualify for the Uganda Top Safari Guides list they need to conform to the above requirements and have a minimum of six (6) years of guiding experience. They should also undergo regular guiding training.
