Darkest Africa inspired epic sagas of discovery in the Victorian age. Livingstone and Stanley’s quest for the Nile’s source filled newspapers. Reports of fearsome beasts meant that only the most intrepid explorers ventured into the bush. Much has changed since those times. Uganda is now enjoying unprecedented political and economic growth. An excellent national park infrastructure gives economic benefits back to the local people. The country is now reaping great rewards as the true value of Churchill’s statement Uganda is “the Pearl of Africa” as it’s recognized.
Despite Hollywood’s attempt to portray the great apes as monsters, Dian Fossey’s work followed by the Gorilla Doctors in Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo and other conservations projects, have showed a gentle side of the endangered mountain Gorillas, through sensitization of communities around these areas and treating the Gorillas with admiration through giving them so much attention. To sit just 8 feet from them and to see, hear and smell them is something that words cannot convey. Explore the best of Uganda on this 14 Days Uganda Safari western circuit safari visiting Murchison falls, Kibale, QENP, Bwindi Gorilla trekking, Lake Bunyonyi and Lake Mburo.
