Nice places to see in Uganda

15 Jan 2013  
0.0 of 5 stars based on 0 votes

Uganda is an amazing country to visit. There is local transport or backpacker tours from Kampala for budget travellers. It is recommended to use the bigger public buses for travel as they have less accidents. Touring with a good vehicle would be ideal. Many of the roads have scenic mountain views eg to Mbarara to Bwindi, Murchison to Fort Portal via Hoima. You can definitely get your fix of African animals and landscapes but the best thing about the country is its people. These are just some places I have been. There are lots more worth seeing.

    Lots of tours go here. In one weekend we saw lions, elephants (hundreds) , giraffes (large groups), hippos, crocs and a lone leopard. Loved the boat trip - helped with trying to imagine what it must have been like for the first european explorers.

    This is a nice town. i would recommend a trip to Bundibugyo to see amazing birds, butterflies and fantastic views of rainforest covered mountains. It is different to the rest of Uganda. The rwenzoris are meant to be great for trekking. i did the trip to Kibale to see chimpanzees. Although there are meant to be small groups of tourists the guides keep in touch and all groups head to see the same bunch of chimpanzees. This results in a very large group of people staring up at the chimps.

    This is a flat town in a hilly country. It has cafes and shops to browse and is a relaxing stop for tourists. The source of the nile is not spectacular in itself but the falls, the bungee jumpers and the variety of methods people use to float down the river are memorable.

    At the time of travelling I did not have the cash to see the gorillas. It is fantastic to do the walks in the park through their habitat. It is a beautiful place - although the eucalyptus woods give a sense of being on two continents at once.
