Kategorie – Uganda

Uganda, often referred to as the “Pearl of Africa”, is located in the east of the continent and is surrounded by countries such as Kenya, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania. Uganda impresses with a diverse landscape that ranges from savannahs to jungles to snow-capped mountains.

The diversity of landscapes in Uganda allows for an equally diverse wildlife. The country is home to one of the last populations of mountain gorillas protected in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Other national parks, such as Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls National Park, offer impressive safari experiences with the opportunity to spot elephants, lions, leopards, hippos and a variety of bird species.

The people of Uganda are known for their hospitality and diverse culture. Uganda is home to different ethnic groups, each with its own traditions, dances and music. English is the official language, but many Ugandans also speak Luganda and other native languages.

The capital, Kampala, is a lively centre with a growing number of restaurants, shops and cultural institutions. Here, traditional and modern ways of life mix, and visitors can experience the country’s rich cultural heritage.

Uganda has experienced political unrest and conflict in the past, but the country has made considerable progress and continues to work on development and stabilization. Uganda remains a worthwhile destination for travelers who want to experience the natural beauty and cultural diversity of East Africa.
