Travel Information

Uganda’s capital city, Kampala, borders Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest river. Most tourists tend to visit between December and January.

The landscapes and wildlife are Uganda’s biggest draws. Heading out on safari, exploring the national parks and game drives are the most popular pursuits.

Uganda is a landlocked country bordered by Kenya, Sudan, Rwanda and Tanzania. Securing independence from Britain in 1962, Uganda has had a troubled political history – including the dictatorship of Idi Amin. Although it currently enjoys a reasonable level of political and economic stability.

Head out on safari and see the incredible flora and fauna Uganda has to offer. This country is home to much of the world’s most exotic wildlife.

Head to the Queen Elizabeth National Park and stop off at the enigmatic Tooro King’s Palace on the way.

Take a hike through mud high up in the Impenetrable Forest and see the gorillas and local pygmy community.
