The Pearl of Africa
Uganda is a pure untouched country. Traveling here, you follow in the footsteps of legendary explorers who searched for the source of the Nile. Wander among the snow-capped peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains, the Mountains of the Moon, to summit the third highest peak in Africa, which along with Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya, are the only such mountains with glaciers in Africa!
Less well known than Rwanda for its endangered mountain gorilla experience, Uganda boasts more challenging terrain and far fewer people, offering a more pure and authentic experience. (And the gorilla permits are cheaper!) There is fantastic big game viewing in Uganda, along with tree climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park and some of the largest Nile crocodiles in the world.
Whether watching wildlife on the shores of Africa’s Great Lakes or finding your thrills on the rapids of the famous Nile, the warmth of the people will make you feel at home in the gentle green hills of Uganda.
