Uganda Tourism: Explore the Pearl of Africa in 2 weeks

Highlights: Murchison Falls National Park, Jinja Source of the Nile, Lake Victoria, Virunga Mountains
Destination(s)
Duration 17 days
Overview

As Winston Churchill famously said, Uganda is the “Pearl of Africa“! Located in East Africa, in the Great Lakes’ region, Uganda is a landlocked country that offers outstanding natural scenery, amazing biodiversity and a great mix of cultures. From an ecological standpoint, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle.

Even though the poverty level is still very high, Uganda is today stable and benefits from a promising economic growth. The country has underwent a radical transformation since the infamous period when Idi Amin imposed a bloody dictatorship (remember “The Last King of Scotland”?) and experiences now an interesting development, despite recent political scandals regarding constitutional changes, press freedom and LGBT rights.

This 2-week trip was made in October/November 2014 and covers essential tourist locations such as Murchison Falls National Park and Jinja Uganda, as well as less visited areas. In terms of guide book I strongly recommend the Bradt Uganda, which is widely considered as the best one available for Uganda, and definitely a better source of information than the Lonely Planet which covers East Africa as a whole.
