Of which the small country bordered by Tanzania in the South, Kenya in the East, DR.Congo in the East, Sudan in the North and Rwanda in the South West, is greatly gifted by nature having lured Winston Churchill during his trip around the world to baptize it as “the pearl of Africa”

From the rare mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park to man made attractions, there are unique things to see in Uganda.
Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this impossibly lush country can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rain forest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of a mountain gorilla?
Certainly, Uganda is the only safari destination whose range of forest primates is as impressive as its selection of plains antelope.
And this verdant biodiversity is further attested to by Uganda ‘s status as by far the smallest of the four African countries whose bird checklist tops over 1,000 mark!
Uganda’s spectacular untouched marvelous natural landscape ranges from big lakes, big rivers, open savanna, big forests, rift valley floor, spectacular waterfalls like Sipi Falls, Bujagali Falls, Murchison Falls, Sezibwa Falls to big mountains.
Uganda is truly breathtaking with the famous Rwenzori mountains also known as the “Mountains of the Moon”, Lake Victoria, the source of the Nile, and many national parks that are home to all the animals you can name that you have seen in a zoo (but in their natural habitat).
