Long after western explorers first walked the vibrant red soil of Uganda and coined the well-established epithet “Pearl of Africa”, modern-day visitors still travel here to marvel at the country’s natural beauty, diverse wildlife and fascinating cultures.
Uganda’s landscape is uniquely diverse. From the wildlife inhabited savannah plains to glacier covered mountains, from tracking endangered mountain gorillas in the rainforest to rushing down the rapids of the mighty Nile, no two days in Uganda are ever the same.

On your journey you can visit our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, or go searching for the prehistoric-looking Shoebill, one of over 1000 bird species to be found in the country. For the more adventurous travellers, mountain biking, volcano hiking and kayaking awaits!

Lonely Planet stated that Uganda is the number 1 travel destination in the world! Ever wondered why? It’s not only because of the amazing gorilla trekking and chimpanzee trekking. Of course the gorillatracking is a “once in a lifetime experience” and Lonely Planet states that this is the number 1 activity to do in East-Africa, but there is so much more to Uganda.  Uganda is located on the equator and for this reason very fertile and green. The diversity in landscape is stunning and enables you to do so much more than only safari. You really can’t miss out on going on chimpanzee tracking or make a shoebill safari around the Mabamba swamps. Visit the wonderful lakes like Lake VictoriaLake Bunyonyi and Lake Mutanda.
