Uganda is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa. It has a well-developed tourist infrastructure and excellent national parks that offer visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with endangered mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and over 600 different bird species.
Dense, misty forests, permanently snow-capped mountains, glassy lakes and sprawling savannah, it’s no wonder Winston Churchill dubbed this wonderful country the “Pearl of Africa.” Mountain gorillas are the allure for many visitors. Uganda has more than half of Africa’s birdlife, among them, some of the world’s rarest. You can also find four of the infamous big five on a Ugandan safari.
