Uganda is a beautiful land of diversity. Folks are warm and welcoming. You will meet many amazing people who are working hard to help those with great challenges.
Famously called the Pearl of Africa by Winston Churchill years ago, Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa that is bordered by Kenya, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania. It is known for being home to one of the most endangered species of mountain gorillas on the planet, and for having possibly the most diverse range of African wildlife throughout the continent. It is generally safe for all levels of travelers, although certain sections can occasionally have unrest due to political differences, so be sure to check with your embassy before heading to the country.
Some people have suggested that Uganda is Africa rolled up into a tiny little ball, with everything that makes the continent so unique wrapped up into one little country. It is home to the Mountains of the Moon, which is the highest mountain range in Africa. It is the source of the Nile, and the national parks and game reserves are some of the most beautiful on the planet, while the opportunity to explore African wildlife up close is without a doubt the best in Africa.
From the Great Rift Valley to the Murchison Falls or the Rwenzori Mountains, the landscapes within Uganda have no competition, anywhere. There is no place on Earth that can match the beauty of this African pearl. Visitors can experience gorilla tracking, rafting on the Nile, safaris, or hiking in the mountains. The food and coffee are divine, although bottled water should be drank rather than tap. Accommodations and transportation will depend on where you go, with buses being the main route of transportation between areas. English is widely understood, as it is the official language. Be sure to bring malaria pills, as it can be a risk in certain parts of the country. But most of all bring your sense of adventure, because if there's one country in Africa that is packed with things to do, it’s Uganda.
