Places in Uganda


In 1907, Winston Churchill called this land “the pearl of Africa” and he was right, it truly is a gem. With the Mountains of the Moon, the largest mountains in Africa, you can climb atop and see the amazing beauty below. The Nile River flows through this country along with enchanting lakes and the world’s most powerful waterfall, Murchison Falls. Thrill seekers can bungee jump, white water raft, or mountain climb. Others visitors can be surrounded by furry chimps in their natural habitat as Uganda has the highest concentration of primates including the majestic mountain gorilla. This country was definitely created as a masterpiece.

Did you know there are only about 700 mountain gorillas left in the world? You can see them at the amazing Bwindi National Park in Uganda. If you love chimpanzees, you can visit them in the Kibale National Forest. Want some adventure? Head to Jinja, in Uganda, for white water rafting, safaris on horseback, bungy jumping, ATV safaris or mountain biking. Hardy hikers join the mountain safaris that climb the Mountains Of The Moon in Uganda and come back exhilarated and inspired by the amazing scenery and fauna! It is all about being outdoors in ravishing Uganda.
