With its pleasant climate all year round and relatively short distances that allow you to experience the country's great diversity in just a few weeks, Uganda is a very pleasant place to travel. As the impact of mass tourism is limited, the relationships that are established with the local population are marked by authenticity. Sometimes shy, Ugandans are very courteous and hospitable. Familiar travellers to Africa gladly claim that the welcome is unique here. Although some parts of the country are still far from the tourist circuits, you can also walk quietly in the cities and countryside, where traditions have remained alive. You will never be harassed, and even if the usual safety precautions remain in place, you can trust us without fear.
Magnificent landscapes :
Geographically located on the border of East and Central Africa, crossed by the Great Rift, Uganda has an infinite variety of landscapes in a relatively small area. Vast expanses of savannah traversed by Africa's emblematic mammals in Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls Parks, lush equatorial forests and volcanoes emerging from the mist on the borders of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, sparkling crater lakes, small islands on lakes Victoria and Bunyonyi, snow-covered peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains (Moon Mountains) or desert plains in the east are all breathtaking scenery. But Uganda is also the country of the Nile, the world's longest river, which flows from Lake Victoria and whose tumultuous course is punctuated by impressive falls, cataracts and rapids.
