National Parks in Uganda
Uganda is a small country but blessed with remarkable biodiversity that is compared to none. While her neighbors invest heavily in marketing and promoting their major tourism resources, Uganda sits quietly believing that eventually people will discover her on their own – call it being complacent. One clear example of this complacency is in regards to the Mountain Gorillas. Uganda is best country for gorilla trekking but when you make some research, you will be surprised to read somewhere that some other country is number one.
However, Uganda is not just about gorillas. During a Uganda Wildlife Safari, one can take park in several activities including spotting the big 5 (Lions, Buffaloes, Leopards, Rhinoceros and Elephants), going for boat cruises on lakes like Victoria (second largest in the world), rivers like the Nile (longest in Africa) or the Kazinga Channel and Lake Bunyonyi to mention but a few. Mountain hikers have several options including climbing Mount Elgon, Mount Sabyinyo, Mount Muhabira, Mount Gahinga, Mount Moroto and the Rwenzori Mountains.
