Tourism to Uganda has seen a steady increase since 2013 as general infrastructure such as roads and tourist facilities like hotels, resorts and lodges have been improved.
Uganda, situated in East Africa with Kampala as capital, has a diverse landscape: from the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains and Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, to abundant wildlife with endangered gorillas and chimpanzees as well as rare birds.
Wildlife parks to visit include Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, famous for mountain gorillas, as well as the Murchison Falls National Park in the northwest -known for its 43m-high waterfall.
While many people may know that Uganda is home to the world’s largest population of gorillas, not many know that the country is also home to half of all of Africa’s birds and butterfly species. It is also home to the source of the Nile.
