About Uganda

Uganda Wildlife Authority and its many partners are committed to improving conservation, education and appreciation of the natural and cultural heritage of Uganda's 10 national parks.

Our wildlife is always in need of more friends from around the world so we invite you to discover our innovative "travelers giving back" programs, promotional campaigns and special events, organised by UWA, local communities and other  organisations. For example, by donating as little as $1 to our Friend-A-Gorilla campaign, you can can become a supporter of one of Africa's most endangered species.

Please become a Friend of Uganda's National Parks through one or more of the following initiatives:
