Uganda and its beauty; the travelers quest


mountain gorillaUganda the Pearl of Africa has rolling plains and towering mountains, dense moist rain forests and stretches of open savannah, water-logged wetland systems and patches of semi-arid landscapes presenting a remarkable physical geography that world travelers have found it ideal to do safaris in Uganda.
Considering the distribution of her flora and fauna not forgetting the 11% of the global bird population, Uganda safari tour can never be ordinary. When you talk of the primate fun filled encounter in the ancient deep forested lands of Bwindi Impenetrable and the Volcanic slopes of the Mountains of Mgahinga protected area, Uganda presents remarkable gorilla safaris offering the world travelers an opportunity to come close to the a half of the world’s mountain gorilla population. As if that is not enough, the rain most forests of Kibale combined with the tropical forests of Budongo and the Kyambura forested landscape present the magical encounter with the chimpanzee one of the two closest relatives of man. In fact, chimpanzee safaris in Uganda are among the lucrative ad rewarding endeavors that are on the tourism market today.
With 1057 Bird species, Uganda does not only hold the 50% continental birds but also shelters the world’s 11% which is a magical wonder of its own and the world birders at times feel perplexed on which micro destination to visit while planning their birding Uganda safaris and end up making a schedule for close to five (5) years exploring the country‘s magical offerings. The Vulnerable rare and the highly sought after shoebill stork is right herein in Uganda.
The open stretches of wide spread savannah is a haven for counts of grazers along with their predators. Uganda features the largest population of the endangered Rothschild Giraffe which is apparently in Murchison falls and Lake Mburo National Park, the African elephant, a range of Antelopes including Elands, Jackson’s Hartebeest, Impala, Topi, Roan Antelope, the water buck, Oribi, Bishbuck, the Uganda Kob, Klipspringer and the duiker; the Cape Buffalo, the Zebra, the White Rhinos along with predators like the lion including tree climbing lions, the leopard, the cheetah, the spotted hyena and the Side stripped jackal among others presenting a remarkable wildlife safari in Uganda.
The counts of streams, rivers and lakes support the myriad of aquatics including countless fish, the notable Nile crocodile and the Hippopotamus while the towering mountainous landscapes present memorable adventure Uganda safari encounters.
The people of Uganda are magical and greatly hospitable as most people have been heard noting that they come to have moments with mountain gorillas but leave talking about people. All these combine to make Uganda worth visiting in one’s lifetime.
