What they say about visiting Uganda

Uganda was a revelation! I had not expected such a richness of wildlife or such great concentration. Uganda has everything Kenya has, plus such once-in-a-lifetime sightings as gorillas and chimpanzees

Scenically Uganda holds its own with any other country, the mountains and lakes of the southwest are postcard-perfect, standing atop Murchison Falls is exhilarating and Kidepo Valley is simply amazing

Uganda’s biggest attraction is mountain gorilla tracking. Seeing these gentle giants has been one of my best wildlife experiences ever. The quite recently established Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is great.
