Travel back in time to some of the oldest mountains on Earth; From 1894, the area was ruled as a protectorate by the United Kingdom, which established administrative law across the territory. Uganda gained independence from the UK on 9 October 1962. The period since then has been marked by violent conflicts, including an eight-year-long military dictatorship led by Idi Amin.

Excellent infrastructure

Uganda has excellent major transport networks, good tourist facilities, safe drinking water nearly everywhere, a superb banking system with numerous ATMs countrywide, good accommodation for all pockets, and mouth-watering eating options

Responsible tourism

Uganda is jammed with natural and cultural riches – yet many of its inhabitants are incredibly poor, with electricity and running water still scarce in many regions.

Responsible tourism in Uganda is one way to reach its largely rural population, to help them conserve their lands, and the wildlife that lives alongside them. Gorillas, too, need our support – to protect them from something as small as a common cold – to something as huge as oil drilling.
