Out & About
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.
