Uganda – The pearl of Africa
In the words of Sir Winston Churchill himself, The Kingdom of Uganda is a fairy tale. The scenery is different, the climate is different and most of all, the people are different from anything elsewhere to be seen in the whole range of Africa.
One of the most beautiful countries in Africa, Uganda is blessed with fantastic natural scenery; half of the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population is in Uganda. It also offers world-class white water rafting at the source of River Nile and some of the region’s more peaceful national parks, where wildlife viewing doesn’t involve long waits in line behind a dozen or more vehicles. The natural attractions are among the best in the region, and as tourism is still being re-established, there simply aren’t the crowds found elsewhere.
Take your pick from the highest mountain range in Africa, the Rwenzori Mountains; one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world, Murchison Falls; or perhaps the highest primate density in the world, in Kabale forest National park – Uganda has all this and more. It’s a beautiful country with a great deal to offer, and sooner or later the tourist hordes will 'discover’ its delights.
Whatever your interest, be it cultural or archeological, wildlife safaris, bird watching, forest walks, mountaineering, white water rafting, kayaking, sailing, sport fishing, mountain gorilla tracking/trekking, chimpanzee trekking, primate adventures, bungee jumping .., Uganda offers all this and more.
Uganda… for magnificence, for variety of form and color, for profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is undoubtedly the place to be!
