About Uganda

Wildlife, nature and culture

Uganda, as we say, is ‘gifted by nature’. It is home to around 15 primate species, nearly 100 mammals and over 1,000 bird species. Coupled with spectacular scenery, this makes Uganda a nature lovers paradise.

But Uganda has more to offer than its amazing wildlife. It is also well known for its outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, white water rafting, mountain biking and abseiling to name but a few.

Uganda also has a rich, diverse culture with over 50 tribes all with their own customs and traditions. Visit schools, farms and cultural/ religious sites or try your hand at cookery, drumming or craft making. All with the famously friendly and welcoming Ugandan people.

It is not all about history and tradition though. Uganda has a thriving modern culture which a tour of Kampala will quickly reveal as you visit some of the trendiest shops, galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants and dance the night away in some of the hottest clubs.

After all that, you might be in need of a little rest and relaxation and Uganda has that covered too. Why not spend a couple of days at the beach, in the Sesse Islands, relaxing in the sunshine and indulging in a little pampering in an exclusive spa?

Whatever your choice, go home feeling relaxed and refreshed and full of ideas for your next holiday in Uganda.
