While less established than its east African neighbours, Uganda is positively brimming with culture and wildlife. This tiny, landlocked nation is overwhelmingly lush and home to all of Africa’s most famous animals, from zebras to cheetahs and even chimpanzees. It’s also one of the best places in the world to spot the majestic mountain gorilla. Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime trek through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see these critically endangered primates in their natural habitat.
Uganda is the source of the Nile River, and gives life to a huge chunk of otherwise barren African terrain. Get your heart racing on a Nile whitewater rafting excursion, or enjoy a leisurely cruise from the southern city of Jinja. Wherever you choose to visit, the warm Ugandan hospitality is sure to be a highlight of your stay.
