Uganda’s fertile lands are made up of terraced hillsides, dense rainforest, numerous lakes, mighty rivers and waterfalls, volcanoes and snow-capped mountains.
There is excellent game viewing in Uganda, including mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, alongside prolific birdlife, warm and welcoming people and stunning landscapes. Mountain gorillas can be tracked at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, while chimps can be found in Kibale Forest and Kyambura Gorge.
Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth II National Park provides excellent viewing opportunities for all Africa’s plains game as well as boat trips on the Kazinga Channel for birdwatching or sundowners. Trekking is possible on Mount Elgon and in the Rwenzori Mountains, while Lake Victoria offers freshwater fishing and a few idiosyncratic tropical-island beach resorts.
