All About Uganda

So what makes Uganda the Pearl of Africa? Apart from probably the best Grade 5 whitewater rafting in the world!

Take your pick from, half the world's remaining mountain gorilla population that can be seen nowhere else but in their natural habitat; the highest mountain range in Africa, the Rwenzori Mountains; one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world, Murchison Falls; or perhaps the highest primate density in any one place, Kabale Forest National Park - Uganda has all this and so much more.

With warm, friendly people, lush green landscapes and stunning scenery all around - if you want to experience Africa, why would you go elsewhere ?
