In the days of colonial rule Winston Churchill described Uganda as "The Pearl of Africa". Join us on this tour and discover what the glimmer in this "pearl" is all about. The Equator as well as the Rift Valley runs through Uganda, resulting in a very unique eco-system. Uganda is also well known for its game reserves, magnificent scenery, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and rich culture. It is
said that the people of Uganda is the friendliest in Africa. Lake Victoria and Jinja, the origin of the Nile, form the south-eastern boarder of the country. Queen Elizabeth National Park is described by many as the most beautiful park in Africa.
The country boasts the world’s best pineapples, avocados, mangoes and bananas. Meat dishes in Uganda are usually stews which will contain the entire animal including the intestines, liver, tongue etc. Nothing is wasted.
Our tour includes visits to all the above. The highlight of the tour is gorilla trekking and a close-up encounter with a family of silver backs in their natural habitat in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This is surely an experience of a life time.
