Welcome to the Pearl Of Africa

Situated at the geographical heart of the African continent, Uganda, well known as The Pearl of Africa, has always been a top draw destination for travellers from all over the world. Back in the 60’s a cruise on Murchison Falls area of the river Nile was part of the quintessential safari experience. And it is not surprising why, because Uganda is a land of huge contrasts and a truly wild and exciting country to explore.

The Pearl of Africa, travellers find the best of everything that Africa has to offer – gorilla and chimpanzee trekking; ‘BIG 5’ game viewing; the tallest mountain range on the continent; the source of the world’s longest river, the mighty River Nile; and the largest freshwater lake in Africa. The Pearl of African is just as well known for her friendly and hospitable peoples and their robust cultures that have stood the test of time.
