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.

Uganda is undoubtedly renowned for its Mountain gorillas. However, the country is more than just gorillas! 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. The launch cruise along Kazinga channel and that along the Nile River in Murchison Falls National Park, the tree climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park are all true rewards to the discerning traveler.

But the magic of safari isn’t all this great country has to offer. For the more intrepid adventures white water rafting and mountain hikes are a must for the daring. Other interesting offers include chimpanzee tracking, birding, fishing, Kayaking and the friendly people that complete the true story of Uganda.

Still not convinced? These 25 stunning locations and activites should give you plenty of reason to visit Uganda, the Pearl of Africa.
