Uganda

Overview

Uganda was described as the ‘Pearl of Africa’ by its old colonial leader Winston Churchill and rightfully so. Despite having its fair share of despots over the years, Uganda is now a relatively stable country – safe and welcoming to its adventure-seeking visitors and one of the best places in Africa for wildlife and mountain gorilla tours.

Located in Eastern Africa, Uganda shares borders with Kenya, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Conger, Rwanda and Tanzania. For geographical reasons alone it’s a regular stop for tours through this region of Africa as it acts as the country to ‘pass through’. Yet just treating Uganda as a place of transit would be a great disservice to this fantastic country of national parks, safaris and rare wildlife. Uganda is a world-class luxury tour destination in its own right.

Uganda’s most famous residents are the highly endangered mountain gorilla, as well as the chimpanzee. Thankfully, the government has put serious measures in place to protect and preserve the unique wildlife ecosystem allowing these rare species to prosper.

Our team will help you discover the outer reaches of Uganda’s national parks, trek though dramatic mountain ranges, go on safari, and see gorillas in their natural habitat, all in the upmost luxury!

Uganda is well suited for those hoping to be a rugged explorer by day but rest and relax in style by night – with an outstanding selection of colonial style hotels and villas to choose from. Lightfoot Travel’s highly experiences consultants design amazing tailor-made luxury itineraries using their own travels as inspiration. We provide impartial advice on the best luxury accommodation for your needs.
