THE PEARL Of AFRICA
An abundance of wildlife treasures, impressive accommodation and spectacular national parks means UGANDA should be the next destination on your bucket list; according to the experts at responsible travel specialists, Rainbow Tours.
Uganda, nicknamed the ‘Pearl of Africa’ by Sir Winston Churchill, offers an exceptional wildlife holiday, best known for its primate-watching opportunities. Scattered around Uganda, the diverse national parks are home to endangered Mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and a plethora of other wildlife including the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino). For an unmatched natural world encounter, follow your guides through the mist-covered rainforest to observe a family of Mountain gorillas for a golden hour that will mark itself permanently on your memory. Equally as exhilarating, although altogether quite different, is watching a group of chimpanzees in the tropical Kibale Forest National Park, or in Queen Elizabeth National Park; an area widely appreciated for its variety of habitats including riverine forest, savannah and salt flats. Another of Uganda’s icons is the monstrous Shoebill, a unique bird at the top of the wish list for all birding enthusiasts heading to Africa. Further enhancing the Uganda wildlife experience is spotting the Big Five in protected areas like Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National Parks, and a stop at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where guests can track White rhino on foot. Combine these wildlife experiences with the variety of quality accommodation available in Uganda and you have the makings of a truly unforgettable holiday.
