The pearl of Africa


Uganda is a land of contrast – its temperamental landscape ranging from swampy lowlands and fertile plateaus, to arid plains that merge with the horizon – and is home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas. Trek through local villages and canopies of rainforests to relish in the sight of a family of gorillas nesting among the bamboo. Stand at the foot of the continent’s tallest mountain range and see the source of the White Nile.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park covers 33,100ha of improbably steep mountain rainforest and houses almost half of the world’s surviving mountain gorillas. Apart from the 350 bird species, the forest is also a sanctuary for bushbuck, chimpanzees, African golden cats, the rare giant forest hog, and the gentle forest elephants. Track chimpanzees in Kibale Forest, or go in search of the Big 5 at the Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Kampala’s streets are jammed with throngs of shoppers and hawkers, livestock clip-clopping along, and mind-bogglingly packed taxis. Towards Nakasero Hill, the urban core fades into a garden city lined with ritzy bars and restaurants. From here it’s a short trip to Jinja to see the source of the White Nile where it bleeds out of Africa’s largest lake – Lake Victoria.
