Before you go for a nature walk you may not imagine its soothing impact, many people view a nature walk as a mere walk away from town, or any other preferable place.
With a Safari in Uganda, it is beyond the normal walk experience for one is able to move away from the noisy, polluted environment to a more natural world. A walk in nature brings us serenity by allowing our over stimulated modern minds a chance to rest. It helps us to relax, it lowers our stress, depression and anxiety levels, it increases our attention spans and memory, and it provides a source of gentle exercise. You can even choose to have an event in the due course of your nature walk.                                                                               
When you
choose to undertake a safari in Uganda; you won't fail to undertake nature walks in many places rich in flora and fauna, like;
Mabira forest; It is one of the last remaining rain forests and biggest in central Uganda located in Buikwe district, between Lugazi and Jinja. It has been protected since 1932. It has an enormous biodiversity comprising 315 bird species, 218 species of butter flies, 97 species of substantial Ecotourism development has taken place in this forest since 1996. It is located only 54 km along the Kampala-Jinja high way. It is visited throughout the year.  
Mpanga Forest Reserve is an eco-tourism site where one can have rewarding nature walk; located in the 37 kilometers distance on western part of Uganda. The trails in the tea gardens offer an added opportunity for visitors on their gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable national park to link to the Eco –tourism Center to enjoy experiential tourism activities.            
Kibale forest; is yet another preferred place for nature walks in Uganda, with  abundant tropical forest and interesting diversity of animals, Kibale national park is one of the most beautiful and stunning forest in Uganda.  It is home to the largest number of our closet living relative, the endangered chimpanzee as well as the threatened red Colobus monkey and rare L’Hoest monkey and other playful primates.
Budongo forest nature walks: 
The vast landscapes coupled with scenic panorama of Murchison Falls National Park and Budongo forest can be explored on foot. Trails through Kaniyo Pabidi and Rabongo Forests provide sightings of many primates and birds; While around the Delta, extended guided swamp walks offer possibilities of spotting a Shoe bill. 
After the usual afternoon boat cruise upstream, visitors can also hike 45 minutes through woodland to the top of Murchison Falls for a completely different experience of this magnificent waterfall.
Birders and nature lovers on a tour in Uganda's Murchison falls National park can enjoy short treks starting from Sambiya River Lodge or Mubako Junction, both on the south bank, or a walk along the north bank from Paraa, crossing the Emmy River.
