Home to 127 districts, Uganda has something for everyone. From the legendary snowcapped Rwenzori Mountains through the virgin rolling hills of the eland to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, from Lake Victoria down the mighty Nile River the country Uganda has immense natural and cultural wealth.
It is in Uganda where over 50% of the worlds endangered Mountain Gorillas are still preserved; it is the same place where the mighty Nile starts its long journey to the Mediterranean Sea.

For magnificence, the wildlife in Kidepo National Park, the Giraffes and Crocodiles in Murchison falls National Park, Zebras and Eland in Lake Mburo National Park, are a must see.
