Culture & Communities
Pearls of Uganda are authentic cultural community attractions and experiences located throughout Uganda, the country described by Winston Churchill as the “Pearl of Africa”! When planning a trip to Uganda be sure to visit these pearls to experience real cultural encounters that will be an inspiring and memorable addition to your Ugandan wildlife safari. Cultural and community encounters include drumming performances and lessons, village walks, medicinal plant demonstrations, handcraft workshops and shopping, community-run accommodations and restaurants + more. Including feature experiences such as The Batwa Cultural Trail, Buniga Forest Trail, Katwa Salt Lake Tour, and Kikorongo Women’s Group.
Uganda is one of the most attractive countries in Africa to birdwatchers, not only because of the unusually high species recorded within its borders, but also because it offers easy access to several bird-rich habitats that are difficult to reach elsewhere. Uganda’s remarkable avian diversity—1,008 species recorded in an area similar to that of Great Britain—can be attributed to its location at a transitional point between the East African savanna, the West African rainforest, and the semi-desert of the North.
