Uganda is a compact country with a lot to offer, including jaw-dropping scenery, fantastically friendly people and once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounters. At the heart of Uganda’s tourism appeal are its famous great apes, and a gorilla trek through Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is an absolute must-do. Uganda has Africa’s highest concentration of primate species, including baboons, colobus monkeys and one of our closest cousins, the fascinating chimpanzee.
Uganda is also a fantastic destination for a more conventional safari, with all of the ‘Big Five’ present and some of the best birdwatching in Africa. For a small country Uganda packs in some seriously super-sized scenery, including the loftiest mountain range in Africa, the Rwenzori, and the continent’s largest body of water, Lake Victoria, which is also the source of the White Nile. You’ll soon discover why Uganda is known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, with a landscape of dense rainforest, rolling savannah, stunning crater lakes and spectacular waterfalls.
