Why Uganda

“The Pearl of Africa” with sapphire blue lakes, enchanted forests, snow-capped mountains, beautiful people and phenomenal wildlife experiences. Uganda is relatively small in relation to other African countries. In a single day visitors may travel from an equatorial mountain forest, through rolling hills of tea and banana plantations,
to the shores of Africa’s inland sea, Lake Victoria, with its plentiful islands and horizon that never ends.
