Uganda is known for its tapestry of landscapes, it’s excellent wildlife and very welcoming locals. However, as a small country, it packs a lot into its borders. It is home to Africa’s tallest mountain range (the Rwenzoris), the source of the Nile, the world’s longest river and the continent’s largest lake. Rafting the Nile offers a world-class adrenaline experience. Still, the country’s most iconic attraction is tracking mountain gorillas in their wild habitat. The country’s diverse and beautiful nature and landscape is a key attraction. Uganda is known as the ‘pearl of Africa’ and remains one of the safest destinations in Africa. It offers the best the continent has to offer at fair value and with fewer visitors than in longer-established East African destinations.
