“A trip around Uganda – the Pearl of Africa is very different to a safari elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa”. Uganda’s tourism is relatively new and anyone who has travelled elsewhere in East or Southern African has commented on the differences in standards of accommodations and services offered in this still developing country.
Why Uganda should be added on the bucketlist in 2017
Uganda – the pearl of Africa is situated on an elevated basin between the eastern and western branches of the Great Rift Valley. A place where the dry savannah of East Africa meets the moist rainforest of West Africa. Furthermore, Uganda’s fertile lands are made up of terraced hillsides, dense rainforest, numerous lakes, waterfalls, mighty rivers, volcanoes and snow-capped mountains.
The National Geographic voted Uganda- the Pearl of Africa as its number one destination 2017, promoting the country as Africa’s preferred safari destination. In addition to this, Rough Guides voted Uganda in fourth position 2017 worldwide for adventure travel.
Why not pack your bags and get immersed in a diversity of spectacular landscapes and experiences? Why Uganda should be on your bucket list of travel places? It doesn’t get any better than this!
Winston Church Hill stated in his book – My African Journey 1908.
The Kingdom of Uganda is a fairy tale. The scenery is different; the climate is different and most of all, the people are different from anything elsewhere to be seen in the whole range of Africa…. what message I bring back…concentrate on Uganda.
Uganda is currently one of the safest countries in Africa. With the Government’s help, there is a professional Police force, the Tourism Police, dedicated to the tourism industry. Furthermore, the Uganda Wildlife Authority in charge of the national parks and reserves, has embarked on training and increased the number of rangers who monitor the parks. By ensuring the wildlife and the tourists are safe, Uganda is promoting sustainable tourism in Uganda.
