Uganda National Park, Tourist destinations in Uganda

Introducing Uganda

Rising up out of the shadows of its dark history, a new break of tourism has risen in Uganda, cleaning a glint back into the ‘pearl of Africa’. Voyagers are flowing in to explore what is essentially the best of everything the continent has to offer.

For a generally small nation, there’s a lot that is big about the destination. It hosts the tallest mountain range in Africa, the source that feeds the world’s longest river and Africa’s biggest lake. And it is also home to half of the remaining mountain gorillas dwelling here, and additionally, the Big Five to be ticked off, wildlife watching in the country is huge.

While anti-gay sentiments have cast a shadow over an otherwise positive tourism picture, Uganda remains one of the most secure destinations in Africa. Other than watching out for the odd hippo at your campground, there’s no more to worry about here than in most different nations.
