|Uganda is a primate destination with 18 out of the 22 primate species found in
Sub Saharan Africa. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is home to more than
half of the world’s wild mountain gorilla population and was declared a Natural
World Heritage Site in December 1994.
Uganda is known for beautiful mountains including the Rwenzoris which have
3rd and 4th highest peaks in Africa, and the longest mountain ranges.
Jinja, the 2nd largest city, is also the source of the mighty River Nile, which
journeys to the Mediterranean Sea. Jinja is also known as the ‘Adventure
Capital of East Africa’ because it offer over 20 exciting activities. Jinja’s charms
has attracted the likes of Prince William and his friends, who appreciate the
town’s tranquility and unspoilt natural beauty.
All along the River Nile a series off rapids & waterfalls can be found, including
the magnificent Murchison Falls, where the Nile which is usually 2 kilometres
across, is forced through a 6-metre gorge and plunges 40m below. This
extraordinary sight is found at Murchison Falls National Park, the largest park
in Uganda. The falls can be viewed from the top,during a three-hour cruise to
the base of the falls, whilst viewing abundant wildlife along the banks. The
more adventurous traveller may want to hike the trails around the falls, while
the avid birdwatcher will want to seek out some of the 424 species identified in
the park. Fishermen can test their skills above and below the falls, waiting
patiently for 20-100 kg Nile Perch.
Another outstanding treasure is Queen Elizabeth National Park which has
recently been designated a Biosphere Reserve for Humanity under UNESCO.
It is the most popular and easily accessible game reserve in Uganda. From
open savannah to rainforest, from dense papyrus swamps and brooding
crater lakes to the vastness of Lake Edward, it boasts one of the highest
biodiversity ratings of any game reserve in the world.
Uganda is a bird watchers’ paradise with approximately 1,061 species; 42 of
which are endemic. This is due to the fact that Uganda is right in the centre of
the north-south; and east-west migratory path.
The 10 national parks in Uganda are very green and teeming with an excellent
array of fauna and flora. It is also possible to see the big five. A safari
experience in Uganda is quite unique because most of the national parks
have a lake or a river transverse it; hence a launch trip or a boat ride is almost
always included in the itinerary.
Kampala is the modern bustling capital city of this vibrant country which has
one of the fastest growing economies in Africa.
