No tour of Uganda is complete without experiencing the unforgettable Bwindi National Park. This UNESCO world heritage site is only accessible by foot and the dense forest is inhabited by a wealth of incredible animals, rare plant-life. Offering one of the richest ecosystems in the world, Bwindi tours are simply imperative to your list.
Other great sites and tours to indulge in should include the Ziwa Rhino sanctuary, a great spot to see the delights of Rhinos in a protected environment. Kibale National Park is one of Africa’s greatest Chimpanzee parks where you can track the trails and habits of the fun-loving chimps.
The capital of Uganda, Kampala, is the perfect showcase of new-era Uganda. A frenetic, vibrant hub of African pride. A tour through this capital will allow you to engage with some of the warmest people and encounter the true sense of life in Uganda. Kampala also contains the wonderful and exciting Ndere center, a great source of cultural information on Uganda and the perfect way to interact with the traditions of the people.
For Idyllic island life, let your Uganda tours drift you to Ssese Islands, a dreamy excuse to lounge around luxurious African beaches, even if they are in the middle of Lake Victoria.
The adventure traveler will be keen to know that white-water rafting on Uganda’s Nalubale river tours offer an adrenaline rush of a life-time and waterfall enthusiasts will be in ore with a visit to Murchison Falls.
So What’s Uganda all about?
Food and Culture of Uganda
Ugandan food tends to center around rice, with sumptuous groundnut stews to accompany or the ubiquitous Ugali cabbage side dishes. Chicken and fresh fish are the favorite meat accompaniments, with beautiful fresh fish from Victoria lake a delectable purchase. Beef, goat and mutton are also common.
Every visitor should experience the array of fresh fruit that is cheap and often straight off the trees, a key refreshment in the Ugandan sun.
Nut allergists beware as groundnut, most commonly peanuts, are a staple requirement in the cooking process in Uganda. So make sure to inquire.

What Time of the year is it best to Visit Uganda?
