Uganda is a land of fascinating beauty and contrasts: From the snow - capped mountains to the rolling hills, the hot hazy savannahs teaming with wildlife to the canopied rainforest alive with birdlife, the chimpanzees crashing through the forest branches to the majestic gorillas chewing softly in the bamboo thicket. The meandering R. Nile twisting its way north words with thundering water falls, to the shimmering white sandy beaches and the friendly peoples’ smiling faces welcomes you to this ‘Pearl of Africa’.

This will allow you to experience wildlife up close where hippos huff and spray mere feet away, buffalo linger in the shallows and a tremendous variety of birds grace the grasses on the river’s edge. Amongst those you will see are the malachite and pied kingfishers, great white and pink-backed pelicans and the open-billed stork.
