Welcome to Uganda, the “Pearl of Africa”! Uganda is one of the best travel destinations in Africa. It is home to the mountain gorillas, rare and endangered apes that are only found in three countries in the world.
Great Things to See
Uganda is a country of scenic wonder – the source of the mighty River Nile, mysterious Rwenzori Mountains, the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi also known as the “Switzerland of Africa” and many more.
Today there are only an estimated 900 Mountain Gorillas remaining in the whole world. Half of these great apes live in the Bwindi Impenetrable forest and Mgahinga National Park in Uganda.
Great Things to Do
Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this impossibly lush country can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rain forest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocs before setting off into the misty tropical rain forests to stare deep into the pensive eyes of the famous endangered mountain gorilla?
Uganda is also a land of diverse cultures! There are over 52 tribes of people within a small country!
The country offers great chances for big game viewing, and there are many exciting and thrilling activities that you can undertake during your safari holiday.
