Hailed as the Pearl of Africa, Uganda is found in the African Great Lakes region, lying within the Nile basin. Winston Churchill called Uganda ‘the Pearl of Africa’ because of the country’s bountiful and astounding natural beauty. To date, Uganda is still the heartbeat of Africa, a wildlife gem and a tourist hub endowed an inexhaustible wealth of attractions. Uganda is a home to over 400 individual mountain gorillas residing in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. This is almost half of the world’s population of the endangered species.
Throughout the year, a great population of tourists flocks Jinja town in Eastern Uganda to encounter the source of River Nile (the World’s longest river). Another one of Uganda’s noteworthy attractions is Marguerite, Africa’s third highest peak found in the Rwenzori mountain range situated in the south-western Uganda, in Rwenzori Mountains National Park, a celebrated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Found in the remote north-eastern Uganda is Kidepo Valley National Park, one of Africa’s finest wildernesses. The park is a habitat to over 475 bird species and 86 mammal species.
Standing out as Uganda’s most visited tourist destination is Queen Elizabeth National Park found in the south-western region. The park is a habitat to over 500 bird species and 95 mammal species. The Lake Mburo National Park, Semuliki National Park, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Kibale National Park, Mount Elgon National Park and Lake Bunyonyi, are also among Uganda’s major attractions. A tour safari visit to Uganda is the ideal choice for a sating adventure and holiday experience.
