You cannot snap Africa until you click its heart – Uganda – truly the heart of Africa whose beauty overwhelmed Winston Churchill when he described it as the Pearl of Africa in his 1908 Book entitled “My African Journey” about his trip to Uganda in 1907. “For magnificence, for variety of form and color, for profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is truly “The Pearl of Africa” , he wrote.
Uganda is a country gifted by nature with friendly people and diverse cultures. Uganda is the source of the Nile, the longest river in the world. Uganda is the only single country in Africa that hosts half of the bird species on the continent and 11 % of the birds’ global population, and half of the world’s endangered Mountain gorillas. Most of Uganda’s natural endowments are found in its 10 National Parks and game reserves. This page gives you more information about Uganda’s National Parks, which you can visit while on a Uganda safari tour.
