From the days Livingstone explored East Africa and the discoveries by Speke and Burton in search of the Source of the Nile, Uganda has always been recognized as a land of contrast and abundant natural beauty. Its locale on the largest fresh water lake in the world with the River Nile, like a shimmering ribbon twisting its way through arid semi-desert scattered with rocky ridges, adds to a vista that has tempted countless explorers and adventurers.
Here the distinguished traveller can discover natural wonders not found anywhere else on the planet: Island dotted lakes with the Virunga Volcanoes as a backdrop in Mgahinga National Park. Tracking gorillas in the Bwindi National Park and chimpanzees in Kibale Forest, white water rafting on the Nile and observing the tree climbing lions and leopards of Ishasha in the Queen Elizabeth National Park. The lush opportunities for exploration that nature has to offer in Uganda appear almost limitless.
