The Pearl of Africa
Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African rainforest. It is where the legendary Nile River begins it’s journey, and where the mighty gorilla makes its home in the mountain ranges that run along the country’s border. Uganda is a land of majesty, from the animal kingdoms to the kingdoms at the core of modern-day Ugandan culture.
Uganda’s Wildlife Kingdom
Uganda is well known as the home of the mountain gorilla and gorilla trekking adventures. These quiet, but massive, creatures live in a dense rainforest of undergrowth, orchids, vines and bamboo. Gorilla trekking expeditions take you deep into Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in search of a mountain gorilla family. Once found, you spend about an hour with these incredible creatures, witnessing their grace and elegance as they subtly interact with you.
But Uganda’s wildlife adventures stretch farther than mountain gorilla trekking. High in Uganda's trees live chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, birds and leopards. A safari into the country’s savannahs yields potential sightings of lions, elephants, hippos, topi, buffalo, and aardvark to name a few.
Uganda’s Cultural Kingdoms
Uganda’s people speak 30-plus different indigenous languages belonging to five distinct linguistic groups, and the country has an equally diverse cultural mosaic of music, art and handicrafts. Many of Uganda’s cultures are ancient kingdoms whose traditional monarchs still serve as important figure heads. Another Land is a pioneer of cultural travel in Africa and our long standing relationships with several villages in Uganda’s kingdoms allows us to take you on a cultural safari like few others have experienced.
Whitewater Rafting on the Nile
The White Nile at its source claims some of the most powerful and sustained rapids on earth. The water is surprisingly warm and creates some of the most exciting rafting opportunities in the world. Rafting adventures can vary in length from a half day to three days.
