Bwindi Safari Experience Uganda
Called "The Pearl of Africa" by Winston Churchill and in more recent memory the scene of great civil war under the mad dictator Idi Amin, it throws up many images.
Most people go to Uganda today to see the famed mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei).
White Water Rafting Uganda
The best Whitewater rafting on the Nile River adventure ever started from the Nile River Explorers backpackers in Jinja.

Uganda the Pearl of Africa
There are certain magical names in Africa, names which conjure up images of mystery, of exotic fauna and flora and even of a certain danger.
I had the pleasure of visiting one of these places last year; the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the southwest corner of Uganda, home to troupes of mountain gorillas.
Popular Uganda Destinations
When I was a younger man, the name of Uganda was evocative of the dangers and thrills of Africa, the superlative wildlife, the psychopathic dictator Idi Amin, the raid on Entebbe and the multiple civil wars.
