Safari in the Pearl of Africa

    A long drive across Northern Uganda and we finally made it to this breathtaking wide, open space. So worth it to experience this little bit of paradise situated along the Nile river. Bordering the Congo, this  vast grassland stretches as far as the eye can see.  An African savannah teaming with wildlife.

    It was Winston Churchill, at the beginning of the century, who said "...for magnificence, for variety of form and colour, for profusion of brilliant life - plant, bird, insect, reptile, beast - for the vast scale... Uganda is truly "the pearl of Africa".
    Uganda, in the heart of East Africa, is full of the wonders of nature. With landscapes ranging from snowcapped peaks, through broad savannah and tropical rainforests to arid deserts, as well as significant wetlands, Uganda is undoubtedly a special place.
    Nestling in the western arm of the African Rift Valley , Uganda has flora and fauna species found in both East and West Africa, as well as an amazing range of its own endemic species.
