Uganda: The pearl of Africa


Uganda is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

The myth goes: ‘You can plant a stick in the ground and a tree will grow’, which says a lot about the rainfall and fertility of the land.

This ever-green country has a lot to offer, you can spot the BIG 5, it is home to more than half of the total population of the mountain gorillas and it is has the source that feeds the longest river in the world.

Oh, and if you are a birdwatcher you have won the birding lottery!


In 2012, Lonely Planet has awarded the country with the first position in their ‘top country and travel destinations’-ranking.
