Uganda is the Pearl of Africa, a country with fantastic natural scenery and a rich mosaic of tribes and cultures. From the moment you land at Entebbe's modern and efficient international airport, with its breathtaking equatorial location on the forested shore of island-strewn Lake Victoria, it is clear that Uganda is no ordinary safari destination. Travelling through the country you will be captivated by its beauty, overwhelmed by the friendliness of its people and intrigued by all that Uganda has to offer 

Uganda lies astride the Equator in Eastern Africa at an average altitiude of 1,100 m above sea-level and is bordered by South Sudan to the North, Kenya to the East, the Democratic Republic of Congo to the West, and Tanzania and Rwanda to the South.

Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this uniquely lush destination can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippos and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to visit the majestic mountain gorillas?

Uganda is the only safari destination whose range of forest primates is as impressive as its selection of plain antelopes. Besides the wide biodiversity, Uganda is also blessed with a vast bird population of more than 1,000 species.
