There is no other country in Africa – like Uganda – the “pearl of Africa”. In 1908, in his book My African Journey Sir Winston Churchill wrote:

“For magnificence, for variety of form and colour, for profusion of brilliant life – bird, insect. reptile, beast-for vast scale-Uganda is truly “the pearl of Africa”. The Kingdom of Uganda is a fairy take. The scenery is different, the client is different and most of all, the people are different from anything elsewhere to be seen in the whole range of Africa…”

From its source in Lake Victoria, the River Nile crosses the Rift Valley to give Uganda a dazzling range of unique habitats. Uganda’s resulting beauty, natural wonders and biodiversity have impressed generations of travelers. Visitors return to Uganda’s welcoming people and temperate climate. Uganda’s most coveted natural attractions include the endangered Mountain Gorilla, Chimpanzees and over 1,000 species of birds. Uganda’s diverse habitats have enthralled wildlife-watchers, and seasoned African Safari-goers, for decades.
Hikers and mountain climbers congregate in the Rwenzori Mountains as well as Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, which also boasts three major peaks. Game and bird viewing is particularly popular in Uganda’s many national parks, and one of the special; attraction is the tree climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Yet there is so much more to Uganda: walking or quad bike safaris, mountain climbing and grade 5 white water rafting are a few of the adventure activities. Her culture of 52 tribes and their languages and dance set the country apart. A comparatively small country, Uganda has won many accolades including Lonely Planet number one destination to visit in 2012.
