Winston Churchill described Uganda as the “Pearl of Africa”, calling it a fairy tale land. Here the ancient kingdoms of Buganda, Bunyoro, and Toro thrived long before the first European explorers came in search of the source of the Nile River.

During the colonial times, Uganda was considered the most beautiful and richest country in East Africa. Now, after many years of political unrest under Idi Amin and Milton Obote, Uganda has regained stability under the leadership of President Museveni and has rebuilt its important wildlife tourism sector.

Uganda is an undeniably beautiful country, with its green and fertile land of high plateaus, luxuriant forests, papyrus-lined lakes and great swamps. It is a land of contrasts. Here you can discover the largest lake in Africa (Lake Victoria), the source of the world’s longest river (River Nile), the world’s strongest waterfalls (Murchison Falls), and papyrus swamps where the weird but wonderful Shoebill storks can still be found.

On the vast plains of Murchison Falls National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park antelopes, buffalo, lions, leopards, and elephants can be watched against a backdrop of the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains, Ptolemy’s fabled ‘Mountains of the Moon’.

Still in the west, there are large tropical rainforests. They are home to over 5700 Chimpanzees, 580 Gorillas, and one of the most exciting selections of forest birds in Africa. Uganda is without doubt the friendliest nation in East Africa and provides tourists with the opportunity to witness the pristine African wilderness at its best.
