Uganda has been dubbed “The Pearl of Africa.” Not only is it home to the world-famous Big Five, and the last remaining Great Apes; it also has an impressive list of natural features, making it a destination of supreme diversity. In the Bwindi Forest alone, there are over 10 species of primate (120 mammal species altogether), while the entire country is home to over 1000 species of bird. Yes, you read that right! From tree-climbing lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park, to boat cruises on the Nile River, rhino and chimpanzee trekking, Rift Valley landscapes and lakes surrounded by vegetated hills.Enquire Now
Within its borders, Uganda boasts Lake Victoria – the largest lake in the world; the Rwenzori Mountains – among the highest in the world; one of the last remaining true rain forests; and Murchison Falls – one of Africa’s most prestigious National Parks set alongside the world’s longest river – the Nile. All these things aside, it is said that the reason it has been dubbed The Pearl, is because of the warm, embracing people of Uganda. This 13-day tour includes both wildlife adventures and immersive community experiences set to bind your heart to the country forever.
