Where mountains soar, incredible wildlife in abundance and a great local culture, there’s no coincidence why Uganda is known as the Pearl of Africa.
Boasting 10 national parks, it’s also home to Africa’s tallest mountain range, the Rwenzoris, the source of the Nile, and Africa’s largest lake.
The world-renowned Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to half of the world's population of mountain gorillas is a sight to see. From the 350 bird species, to the chimpanzees, African golden cats, the forest Elephants and so much more, it’s a must for any travellers’ bucket list.
When the sun is high and you're touring through the savannas of the Queen Elizabeth national park, cross your fingers and hope you get to see the famous trees climbing lions as they climb up to rest under the shade.
If you’re into boating and water sports, then Uganda is the right place for you. With a variety of water bodies, this is the perfect place to indulge. Gear up your fishing rods as you have the chance to catch fish such as the Nile perch and tilapia in areas of Lake Mburo and the banks of the Nile.
Whether you enjoy the waters or the savannas, or you just prefer trekking and hiking through the mountains, you'll certainly not be disappointed with this destination.
