Visit Uganda for dense forests, lakes and mountains

Uganda sits in the centre of the Great Lakes Region in Africa, making it a go-to destination for rich scenery, gorillas, birdlife and white water rafting on the Nile.

Gorilla trekking takes places in earnest in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, while Buhoma in the north and Nkuringo in the south are home to habituated gorilla families for special treks.

Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale Forest and Murchison Falls add to the mix of experiences in Uganda.
