About Uganda - "The Pearl Of Africa."

Home / About Uganda

A Brief Introduction – Uganda.
Aptly named “The Pearl of Africa” by Sir Winston Churchill, Uganda is truly a home away from home for any visitor. The rich cultural background and reputation as “Africa’s friendliest country”, fine parks and wildlife, an attractive country-side with tremendous mountain rages, lakes, rivers and waterfalls; Uganda has such a wealth of attractions that a single visit to this wonderful country will not be enough to discover all of the many unique tourism locations that it has to offer.

Talk To An Expert To Plan Your Trip

Across the pearl is a network of 10 national parks and several other protected areas offering wildlife fans a thrilling opportunity to experience Uganda’s rich biodiversity. Not only the fascinating tracts of thorn bush savannah teeming with the Big 5 usually linked with equatorial East Africa, but also abundant expanses of tropical rainforest, fertile valleys, and the towering snow-capped peaks of Africa’s tallest mountain range, Rwenzori.

For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is truly “the Pearl of Africa.” – Winston Churchill
