Uganda travel and information guide for safaris to this amazing little east African country.
Uganda, saturated in colour, the outstanding natural beauty of its people and landscapes have and always will stir inspiration for travellers and residents.
Parts of the country have changed very little in the last hundred years, the period of turmoil between 1967 and 1986 virtually ground all industrial and economic progress to a halt. This was an era when other countries in Africa were enjoying the fruits of international aid, and their economies expanded as fast as their populations.
Uganda now offers visitors some of the finest wildlife experiences on offer in Africa. Gorilla and chimpanzee safari options, Nile river explorations, fantastic birding and abundant wildlife in national parks and reserves across the country.
