Uganda breathtaking equatorial location on the forested shore of Lake Victoria is safari destination that offers the best of Africa in one country.

Mountains of the Moon is an ancient term referring to a legendary mountain or mountain range in East Africa at the source of the Nile River - the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda being the most celebrated.Winston Churchill called Uganda “the Pearl of Africa”

The key attraction is the primates, particularly the Gorilla for this where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle that results to an incredibly lush.

A traveller observes lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth the same afternoon. Then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocs before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of a mountain gorilla?

Certainly, Uganda is the only safari destination whose range of forest primates is as impressive as its selection of plains antelope.

And this verdant biodiversity is further attested to by Uganda’s status as by far the smallest of the four African countries whose bird checklist tops the 1,000 mark.
