Although land-locked, Uganda contains many lakes and the country is sometimes referred to as the ‘Pearl of Africa’. Besides the larger lakes, Lake Victoria, Lake Kyoga, Lake Albert and Lake Edward, there is also the smaller Lake George.
Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Wildlife experiences here are diverse – from observing lions prowling the open plains to tracking chimpanzees in rainforest undergrowth.
There is also of course Uganda’s misty mountain range, home to the mountain gorilla. There are only about 880 mountain gorilla in the world and only two populations: one in Rwanda and one in Uganda.
