Our Uganda Country Guide below will tell you all you need to know about the best of amazing Uganda. If you are interested in finding out about events, tours, attractions and things to do in Uganda simply follow the links. Let us guide you through Uganda with our local suggestions.
Great Things to See
Uganda is a country of scenic wonder – the source of the mighty River Nile, mysterious Rwenzori Mountains, the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi is also known as the “Switzerland of Africa” and many more.
Today there are only an estimated 900 Mountain Gorillas remaining in the whole world. Half of these great apes live in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga National Park in Uganda.
Great Things to Do
Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this impossibly lush country can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rain forest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocs before setting off into the misty tropical rain forests to stare deep into the pensive eyes of the famous endangered mountain gorilla?
Uganda is also a land of diverse cultures! There are over 52 tribes of people within a small country!
The country offers great chances for big game viewing, and there are many exciting and thrilling activities that you can undertake during your safari holiday.
A trip to Uganda is not easily forgotten – nature and history combine to offer every visitor something to remember the country by. Notwithstanding the political unrest that plagued Uganda for many decades, this majestic nation’s stunning natural beauty has remained largely unspoilt. The savannahs of East Africa meet the jungles of west Africa in the lush country of Uganda.
Places to Visit
Uganda is the ‘Pearl of Africa’ – the best features of the continent are packed into its borders. Uganda boasts of lots of amazing places to visit;
- the Rwenzori National Park home to the Mountains of the Moon, Africa’s tallest mountain range.
- The mighty River Nile that originates from Jinja and offers some of the world’s best white-water rafting opportunities around Jinja.
Things to See
Uganda is also home to the largest concentration of primates in the world, including one of the earth’s rarest animals – the mountain gorilla. To spot one of these majestic animals, visit the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
To top it all is the picture perfect scenery. The landscape of Uganda is a picture of contrasts – the rough and craggy mountains stand tall against the gentle meadows and wide savannah grasslands, and the dry uplands are very different from the wetlands located on the lakeshores. This difference in landscape is reflected in the Ugandan people as well.

Visitors to Uganda will be delighted by the many treasures just waiting to be discovered and adventures to be had in every corner of Uganda.
