Despite the fact that Uganda is a land locked country, it is gifted by nature. Winston Churchill called it ‘the Pearl of Africa’ which is perhaps an understatement considering its beauty, riches and among all is the favorable climate. It is home to the endangered Mountain Gorilla and also a Bird and Primate paradise. The 10 National Parks and wildlife areas play host to Africa’s ‘Big 5’: Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard, and Buffalo without forgetting Gorilla and Chimpanzee.
The Equatorial climate provides permanent year-round temperatures of 27 degrees Celsius yet the Rwenzori mountain range, Africa’s highest, is snow capped. Uganda is also the source of the world’s second longest river, The Nile, which starts its journey at Africa’s largest lake, Victoria, dotted with tropical islands and their sandy white beaches.
