Uganda "Pearl of Africa"

The “Pearl of Africa” – Uganda is a land locked gem with the Lake Victoria one of the world’s largest lakes, it is also the start point of the mighty river Nile and home to the snowcapped Rwenzori Mountains and the dense rain forests of central Africa. These diverse landscapes have some of the best birding in Africa and are home to an unusually high number of rare wild life species – including more than half the world’s mountain gorillas.

Gorilla tracking through the Bwindi impenetrable forests is an obvious highlight to any Uganda Safari. However, Uganda is not a one hit wonder. The awe inspiring Murchison falls on the Nile, and the endless Savannah in Queen Elizabeth , as well as the vast arid park in Kidepo valley offer fascinating varied safari experiences with good populations of lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, giraffe as well as chimpanzees and the incredible shoe bill stock.

 

Climate

Uganda can be visited any time of year. However, the long rains during April and May should be avoided if possible as these can make gorilla trekking hard work. We can safely say, Uganda is hot and wet though out the year.

Lets go on a Safari in Uganda 

    

     

 

 

  

 

Lets go on Safari, you are invited

Nelson Mandela said

And I dream of the vast deserts, the forests and all the wilderness of our continent, beautiful places that we should protect as a precious heritage for our children and for our children’s children. We must never forget that it is our duty to protect this environment”. Nelson must have dreamt about Uganda.

 

Our mission is simple…to understand Uganda, why it is as it is, and why it exists as the pearl of Africa.

Uganda is a land of contrasts. In half a day, you can drive from mist shrouded volcanic mountains to hot hazy savannah, dappled with wild life, serene undulating hills of tea plantations, lush but ordered, giving way to tangled jungle and rain forests with the musical accompaniments of chaotic, cacophonous bird life. It indeed presents Africa in one small place. It is amazing!

 

Uganda boasts of 10 National parks, 12 Wildlife reserves and 10 wild life sanctuaries. This is for the Wildlife enthusiasts. But that’s not all that Uganda offers the descending traveler. Our land always has something exciting for everyone. You can choose the Mountain Gorilla experience, go fishing, relax at the white sand beaches of Lake Victoria, and for the adrenaline junkies, a trip down the thundering river Nile on a white water rafting adventure will surely come in handy. And just so you know, Uganda is a birders haven. In Uganda, you can see all of Africa.

 

I always tell my clients that this country is remote, wild, stunning and beautiful. It doesn’t get better than this. It has big skies, vast Rocky Mountains and golden green plains dotted the big five and other mammals and birds.

 

It is this pivotal positioning of Uganda and its people that implores me to ask you to come with us not just to travel because of celebration, sadness or stress, but also in the process of conservation. Share our passion.

Uganda…Wander and wonder… and then you fall in love!

I remember a story that we were told while growing up, about the Europeans who came to our motherland in the search for colonization. They wandered and roamed our land like butterflies, or at least with little sense of direction. In amazement, our forefathers then referred to them as Mzungu. This Swahilli word is loosely translated as wanderer. Today we still refer to whites as Mzungu.

But as they wandered on, they saw the wonder that is in Uganda. Little wonder, Winston Churchill wrote back describing Uganda as “The pearl of Africa”. This should have been the start of tourism in Uganda.

I never dreamt of showing up as a safari specialist, but the defining moment leading to my current love, was that school trip we took to western Uganda in the Queen Elizabeth national park when I joined the wild life club. We were not wandering but this awakened the inner wanderer in me.

Our first stop was at the Equator, the imaginary line that divides the world into two- the Northern and Southern hemispheres. I stood at this point with one leg on either side of the line. It’s amazing, how one becomes lighter while on this line. Here water runs down in sinks to the clockwise in the Northern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the Southern hemisphere. The guide called it the coriolis effect… I called it the Equator magic.

Then we were on our way to the queen Elizabeth national park, overnighting in the dorms. We saw elephants in the night by our camp.

In the days that followed, we went to the katwe salt works to see how salt is mined, we took morning and evening game drives and a boat cruise on the Kazinga channel.

Queen Elizabeth has a variety of Flora and Fauna and it’s acknowledged to be a habitat for over 95 mammal species with about 612 species of birds. The various species in this park, has made it a unique park most liked by tourists. It has five levels of vegetation. Namely bushy grassland, Acacia woodland, Lakeshore or swamp vegetation along with forest grassland.

We saw wildlife such as Cape buffalo, Uganda Kob, waterbuck, warthog, lion, leopard, hyena, giant forest hog as well as elephants. Then it was time for us to return home. And this time, we took a train. This ride showed me Uganda. The wonder of Uganda.

Our country is a land of contrasts. In half a day, you can drive from mist shrouded volcanic mountains to hot hazy savannah, dappled with wild life, serene undulating hills of tea plantations, lush but ordered giving way to tangled jungle and rain forests with the musical accompaniments of chaotic, cacophonous bird life. It indeed presents Africa in one small place. It is amazing!

At this moment, I realized, promoting Uganda tourism starts with me.

This formed my current opinion of our country and it was from this trip that I was determined to show Uganda to every one willing to visit.

People are very friendly, welcoming and the food is awesome.

I have since travelled the whole country to learn more so as to tell this story. I have indeed wandered this wonderland.

Up north, we have the Kidepo valley national park and Murchison falls. This region is famous for the big five and exclusive lodges. The iconic BIG FIVE – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – have long dominated the list of must-sees on a Ugandan safari.

But that’s not all that Uganda offers. The Mountain Gorilla and Chimpanzee that have increasingly become a “bucket list” item for many a traveler to this part of Africa.

The adventurers will want to try Bungee jumping and white water rafting in Jinja, horse riding and mountain climbing.

The leisure and honeymooners have the luxury of lazing away at the beaches of Lake Victoria, the world’s second largest water body.

Uganda has it all. And our mission at the Uganda Safari Chapter is simple… It is complete understanding of Uganda, why it is as it is. And why it exists as the Pearl of Africa.

As we always say, out of Africa, there is always something new. When visiting Uganda, choose the Uganda Safari Chapter, and lets take you on a Safari. Only with us, it is not wandering like the Mzungu. It is an African Safari full of wonders.
