Ever wondered why Uganda is known as 'the Pearl of Africa'? Well, back in 1909, Sir Winston Churchill dubbed Uganda so because of its fantastic natural scenery and lavish mosaic of tribes and cultures. Uganda is literally, where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle.

Visitors fall in love with her breath-taking Rift Valley scenery, lush countryside and incredible biodiversity. They can track gorillas through misty mountains and chimpanzees through rainforest undergrowth, navigate tropical open savannah plains whilst on safaris to see the elephants, Big Cats and incredible 100s of species of birds, or just lie by the poolside overlooking the fabulous River Nile. Ugandans love to meet and greet new people – the country's crafts, dance and community tourism intrigue and delight the visitor. With new lodges, new activities and improved roads, why not visit the Republic of Uganda to view these marvels first-hand?
