Between the savannahs of East Africa and central Africa’s rainforests we find Uganda. Aptly nicknamed the Pearl of Africa, this small country shimmers with life and biodiversity in its variety of landscapes and the great apes and other wildlife that inhabit it.
Uganda is a record setter for Africa. Here we can visit the continent’s tallest mountain range, it’s largest lake, and the source of the Nile – Africa’s longest river. However, the main attraction is tracking the endangered Mountain Gorillas in the misty forests of Bwindi.
With plenty of primates and unique wildlife such as tree-climbing lions and the prehistoric shoebill bird, Uganda is perfect for those who want something different, and thanks to the country’s small size, its vast array of landscapes and activities are all a stone throw away from each other.
