Enjoy what Uganda really has to offer
Uganda has been called the “Pearl of Africa” because of the abundance of wildlife and natural beauty lurking in every corner. Safari trips here are thrilling. In the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, you can come face-to-face with gorillas. In the Kidepo Valley National Park you can witness dramatic scenery and enjoy close-ups with an immense variety of wild animals, normally only seen in zoos. Chill out on the green terraced hills by the serene paradise of Lake Bunyonyi--a great body of water studded with tiny islands. This is the real Uganda…where your senses take over as you enjoy the sheer beauty of the country.
