LAIDBACK LIVING ON THE LAKESIDE
As you lie on the white sand beach, palms swaying lazily in the gentle breeze, and your eyes stretching across the infinite blue - you could be forgiven for thinking you are on a tropical island utopia.

Include the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in your itinerary so you can spend some quality time with these beautiful creatures.

WHAT TO LOVE ABOUT UGANDA
- BIRD LOVER’S PARADISE: Uganda is a mecca for birding enthusiasts, not surprising though as it has over a thousand recorded bird species – some of which are found nowhere else in the world! This makes it the richest African birding destination.
- CHIMPANZEES: Although gorilla trekking is top of everyone who visits list, chimpanzee trekking should be right up there too. Kibale National Park has the biggest population of chimps on earth and is the best place to observe them.
- LUSH GREEN LANDSCAPE: From the forests to the banana, tea and coffee plantations, green is definitely the prevailing colour in Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to over 1000 species of plants and 200 different types of trees. Many are endemic to the region.
- PEOPLE: Friendly, hospitable and curious, the people of Uganda are welcoming and curious as well. You'll often hear the word "Muzungu" (white people) as you enter a village. Village elders are happy to show you around whilst school children stand around and giggle.
- LAKES, RIVERS AND WATERFALLS: Water in many forms can be seen everywhere in Uganda, some of it even being sourced by the mighty Nile River. With it's rolling green hills and lakes, Uganda strikes a beautiful pose.
