How Safe is Uganda?
Uganda is a lush and fertile country with spectacular scenery & abundant wildlife, thereby justifying its description as “The Pearl of Africa.” The country is landlocked and is bordered by Kenya to the east, Tanzania to the south, Rwanda to the north, The Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west and South Sudan to the north.
Despite its relatively small area (241 551 sq km) Uganda has some of the friendly people on earth as well as remarkably diverse landscape – the Kigezi highlands (commonly referred to as the “Switzerland of Africa”), the legendary snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains, dense tropical forests, rolling savannah, freshwater lakes, and breathtaking waterfalls on the River Nile.
Visitors to Uganda can enjoy many outstanding attractions such as: the numerous National Parks and Wildlife Reserves which provides uncrowded viewing of the varied animal, bird and plant species; the source of the River Nile where it begins its 3000 kilometre journey to the Mediterranean Sea; the extremely rare and endangered mountain gorilla in the Muhavura Range; the spectacular Murchison Falls on the River Nile; and the famous Rwenzori Mountains which provide challenging climbing expeditions.
