Uganda was nicknamed The Pearl of Africa By Sir Winston Churchill, and the description stands true after generations.

 

Many people visit Uganda for face-to-face encounters with the endangered mountain gorillas. In addition, they get to see a lot of wildlife such as elephants, lions, hippos, chimpanzees, zebras, giraffes and so much more.

 

Both the landscape and general climate of Uganda make for great all-year tourism activities such as hiking, gorilla trekking, mountain climbing, whitewater rafting, and the buzzing nightlife in the cities.

 

At the end of your tour, it would be hard to tell whether it is the natural resources or the people, that make Uganda – truly the pearl of Africa.
