    One thing unique about Uganda and different from it’s neighboring countrie is that tourism in Uganda is built on the concept of ecotourism and the main focus is placed on sustainable use of the natural and cultural attractions which are the foundation of Uganda’s tourism, as well as empowering the local communities to benefit from tourism.
    Uganda has ten national parks offering a diversity of attractions and activities. This makes the country a one stop destination for all your adventure expectations. The national parks are rich in flora and fauna with some endemic species of birds, wild animals, butterflies, aquatic life and vegetation.

    Perhaps I shouldn't be letting you in on this secret, but Uganda is incredible. Unlike Kenya and Tanzania, which are well known to travelers, Uganda seems to have gone unnoticed which I find baffling. Any place where you can climb a mountain, raft the Nile, and get charged by a silverback gorilla- all in the span of about three or four days is seriously hard to top in my book.

Description

Uganda, in East Africa, is one of the continent’s most interesting and beautiful countries, deemed by Winston Churchill to be the “Pearl of Africa.” Africa’s highest mountains are to be found in the Rwenzori National Park, and the Nile River itself begins in Uganda. Rare fauna like the endangered mountain gorilla populate the land, which itself is stunningly beautiful. Kampala, the capital, is a busy (and relatively friendly) African city. Years of brutal tyranny under Idi Amin have not dampened the people’s spirit, although there has been controversy and some violence recently around gay rights, including laws introduced in Parliament which make being gay a crime and the murder of a prominent activist in early 2011.
