UGANDA IS ES­PE­CIALLY recog­nis­able for the ar­ray of spec­tac­u­lar wildlife that can be found across its equally in­cred­i­ble land­scapes, both of which have served as a ma­jor driver of em­ploy­ment and in­vest­ment.

With tourism pro­vid­ing such a ma­jor driver for growth in the coun­try, it is also be­ing used to fight poverty. You will no­tice a large num­ber of spe­cific tourism com­pa­nies dur­ing your time in the coun­try, often sell­ing tra­di­tional prod­ucts such as arts and crafts and tra­di­tional at­tire.

Some of the most pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tions in Uganda are found in the form of game re­serves, his­tor­i­cal sites and nat­u­ral trop­i­cal forests with end­less sur­prises to be dis­cov­ered.

When ex­plor­ing in your spare time, you will dis­cover that Uganda truly has a prime lo­ca­tion within the African Great Lakes re­gion, with a num­ber of wa­ter bod­ies that are in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar spots for tourists.

Due to its ex­ten­sive bod­ies of wa­ter, boat­ing is an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar pas­time that is com­monly car­ried out on Lake Vic­to­ria, Lake Mburo, Lake Bun­y­onyi, Kazinga Chan­nel and the River Nile. This of­fers the perfect op­por­tu­nity to see the sites and ex­plore the lo­cal na­ture, in­clud­ing the like­li­hood of spot­ting buf­faloes, hip­pos, croc­o­diles and birds.

As well as a spec­tac­u­lar ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties just wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered, Uganda will also sur­prise you with the level of its hos­pi­tal­ity. De­pend­ing on the re­quire­ments of your stay, there is some­thing for every­one and par­tic­u­larly the ever-in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar busi­ness tourism in­dus­try.
