Uganda, the “Pearl of Africa,” is one of the most beautiful countries on the continent. Gorilla trekking and chimpanzee trekking are the country’s major attractions, along with the friendliness of its people. A country with fantastic natural scenery and a rich mosaic of tribes and cultures, travelling through Uganda you will be captivated by its beauty, overwhelmed by the friendliness of its people and intrigued by all that Uganda has to offer.
Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this uniquely lush destination 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 hippos and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to visit the majestic mountain gorillas?
For a relatively small country, there’s a lot that’s big about the place. It’s home to the tallest mountain range in Africa the source that feeds the world’s longest river and the continent’s largest lake. And with half the remaining mountain gorillas residing here, as well as the Big Five to be ticked off, wildlife watching is huge. Most travelers come for the gorilla Safari, but other major draws are the chimpanzees, ornithology, trekking the Rwenzoris and visiting the source of The Nile River.
We are bordered by the Republic of South Sudan to the North, the Republic of Kenya to the East, the Democratic Republic of Congo to the West, and the United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Rwanda to the South.
Destination Uganda:….beyond expectations, a real African experience…
Uganda is home to gorillas and chimps. The Bwindi impenetrable forest offers the unforgettable Gorilla trekking experience.
