Incredible wildlife experiences and the warmest of welcomes await amongst Uganda’s rich patchwork of diverse habitats.
Comparatively small, on the scale of Africa, Uganda has more than its fair share of the biggest and the best. Within its borders you’ll find the source of the Nile, the continent’s biggest lake (Lake Victoria), its tallest mountain range and many of the giants of the animal kingdom. This is the most bio-diverse country in Africa, with vast tracts of rainforest, marshland, plains and snow-capped mountains. There are over twenty nature reserves to explore and opportunities for wildlife spotting abound, from hippos wallowing in the waters of the Kazinga Channel, to gorillas in the misty highland forests.
