Uganda has so much to offer in terms of wild life, with all the big five all on the menu on your safari packages- the elephants, lions, giraffes, buffalos, cheetah, zebras, antelopes, crocodiles etc. can be seen in most of Uganda’s national parks.

Uganda is also blessed with the rare primates, the mountain gorilla- with only 800 left in the world, half of that population is in Uganda in Bwindi impenetrable national park- the chimpanzee population in the world has been listed as critical and again Uganda is blessed with this rare primate found in the forested areas.

Uganda is a birders paradise, with over 1000 recorded species, you will be spoiled for choice. This is more so because of the many forests and water bodies which cover the significant part of the country.

Uganda has its uniqueness starting with the unmatched welcoming culture of the Ugandan people, all throughout the country the friendliness of the people makes you feel welcome in the country.

With over 56 tribes in one country, diversity in terms of culture can be truly experienced- in the central region we have the ganda tribe which is the biggest of all the tribes in Uganda- they have so much to show case in terms of traditions and culture- in the west the Ankole culture dominants, this culture revolves around  long horned cattle with the Ankole tribe having so much attachment to the cattle, in the north, acholi and karamojong cultures are quite unique with both them having to depend on cattle for their livelihood. The karamojong have unique cultural practices which are worth paying a visit- their home steads, dressing, cultural practices like initiation ceremonies, marriageetc. The pygmies (Batwa) who previously inhabited the forests are worth visiting because of their unique way of life.

Uganda has so many historical sites in the country with the Kasubi royal tombs leading the way- it was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO, these are the burial sites for the kings of the most powerful kingdom in Uganda, the Namugongo martyrs shrines are also a key attraction, these shrines were built to remember those who died for their religion on the orders of king Mwanga of Buganda kingdom.

With some of the best known physical features inthe world that’s to say the Nile river which is around 4000 kilometers andhas its source in Uganda at Jinja- the Nile has been talked about for thousands of years and what a better way to come visit it here in Uganda. On the other hand Uganda has the largest fresh water lake in the world- lake Victoria- with so many beautiful islands and so much to do on the lake in terms of tourism. Other rather impressive sceneries include the crater lakes in the Albertine rift, the Great Rift Valley, the fresh water lakes- Lake Victoria, Lake George, Lake Edward,kyoga. The mighty river Nile which has one of the most power falls in the world- the Murchison falls.
