Safari in Uganda
Uganda is still in its nascent stages when it comes to being a world famous tourism destination.
The Silverback mountain gorilla of Bwindi Impenetrable forest has caused Uganda to gain notoriety in the last 15 years. These amazing and majestic creatures total only approximately 600 between the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda; since the Congo is unstable as a tourist destination, Uganda and Rwanda’s tourism industries have continued to grow at a rapid pace. Compared to the safaris of neighbors Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda’s wildlife game safaris are often overlooked. But lions, elephants, buffalo and other savannah wildlife are often sighted at Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth Park and many of the other National Parks. Uganda’s superb scenery and relatively untouched location make up for the fact that the game-viewing infrastructure is not yet as well-developed as those of Kenya and Tanzania; however, Uganda is making a name for itself with these amazing creatures and its rich history.
