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.
