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!
