About Uganda

Uganda is a gem! A country full of green mountains and teeming with perfectly cultivated plots. This country is colourful, clean and full of smiling people. National parks are everywhere and this is one of the three countries where you can go trekking with mountain gorillas. A highlight for sure, but don’t forget about the beautiful lakes, the delicious food and some fantastic hiking opportunities in this welcoming nation.
