Uganda is a landlocked nation in East Africa and is considered one of the continent’s friendliest and safest countries. Lush and ecologically diverse, Uganda is where the West African jungle joins the Eastern Savannah. Tour the Bwindi Impenetrable National Forest to encounter Uganda’s famous mountain gorillas, view crocodiles and hippos—from the safety of your boat—on the Nile River at Murchison Falls National Park, and watch a magnificent color display as thousands of birds take flight at Lake Victoria; Uganda has more than 1,000 bird species.

Uganda’s capital, Kampala, located on Lake Victoria about 25 miles from Entebbe International Airport, offers modern conveniences and is a good staging ground for your adventures. Kampala’s city center at Nakasero Hill offers several public parks and gardens; at the bottom of the hill is a bustling street where you’ll find Ugandan vendors selling wares and the vibrant Nakasero fresh food market.
