Get to Know Uganda

The place to enjoy forests, lakes, gorillas, chimps, birds and adventure. Uganda is a world in one country, from snow-capped mountains and green hills to misty forests and crystal clear lakes –  truly a gem in Africa.

There’s gorilla trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, chimpanzee treks at Kibale, plains and savannah game viewing at Queen Elizabeth National Park or Murchison Falls, even giant forest pangolins, strange bushbabies and a wealth of birds. But you don’t have to be a safari lover to enjoy the country; if you love adventure and adrenalin sports you can climb the Rwenzori mountains, trek on Mount Stanley, or enjoy a river experience on the Victoria Nile.

FAQs about Uganda

  • Entebbe is a city in Uganda's south-central region.
  • Entebbe is located 21 miles (34 kilometers) south of Kampala, at the tip of a peninsula jutting into Lake Victoria.
  • Trekking for gorillas in Uganda or Rwanda is very similar and provides the same kind of life-changing experience. However, Uganda has more gorillas so there will be a better chance of not being disappointed as you are likely to have more sightings in Uganda.
  • Although some of the game parks have become quite overrun with tourists during certain times of the year, there are still many very remote and untouched areas to view games in Africa two examples of this are in Northern Mozambique and Uganda.
