An adult shoebill (Balaeniceps rex) in Mabamba Bay, Uganda. The species can be found living in swamps in tropical east Africa from Sudan to Zambia. They are mostly silent and solitary birds, only coming together when food is scarce or to breed. Shoebills are classed as vulnerable due to poaching, regular burning of their swamp habitat and pressure from fishermen. Photograph: Martin Hale/

Elephants, Uganda Elephants have miles of unbroken savanna to roam inside Uganda's Queen Elizabeth Park, where their numbers total 2,500, a dramatic rise after heavy poaching in the 1980s. Outside the preserve villagers kill elephants that trample and eat crops, though attacks have diminished with the digging of trenches to protect fields from wild trespassers.

Mountain Gorillas, Africa Alert to human visitors, a young mountain gorilla and its mother sit tight in Bwindi Impenetrable Park. When the park opened in 1991, villagers resented losing access to forest where they had gathered honey and wood. Today the park shares the fees from gorilla-watching tours with the locals, a small victory in the Albertine Rift's unending clashes for livable space. Photograph by Joel Sartore For a chance to see these iconic creatures, a visit to Uganda with Premier safaris will blow you away
