Our Uganda travel guide aims to explain more about a country where nature reigns. Sitting on the equator, Uganda is - appropriately enough - somewhere to find your own equilibrium. For instance, while canoeing on the waters of Lake Mutanda. Your guide will caress the water with a paddle to the right and a paddle to the left, lulling you almost into a hypnotic state while you keep your eyes peeled for colourful birds, chameleons and monitor lizards poking their heads above the water. Meanwhile, along the shoreline, people work their plots of land by hand. In Kibale National Park, you can track chimpanzees and admire their acrobatics. Take the road back to Elizabeth National Park, and between forest and savannah you can witness lions, large gazelles, crocodiles and hundreds of bird species.
Something missing? Keep the best until last: with a visit to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see our cousins, mountain gorillas, in their last natural habitat. It’s an almost unbeatable travel experience.
