Uganda – “The Pearl of Africa” – is one of East Africa’s better kept secrets. It has long been a favourite haunt for back-packers. Uganda has it all: remote wilderness areas, breathtaking scenery, extraordinary cultural diversity and incredible wildlife.
Its neighbour, Rwanda, has often been called the “Land of a Thousand Hills”. It is a mountainous country with a moist, temperate year-round climate. The main and enduring attraction of both these countries is its primate populations; in particular the Mountain Gorillas: one of the most awesome wildlife viewing experiences in the world.
