Many people travel to Uganda to see the Mountain Gorillas that Uganda is famed for. Uganda is the home to half of world’s remaining population of mountain gorillas. Popularly known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’, Uganda’s most famous attraction is the Bwindi ‘Impenetrable’ Forest home to the elusive and treasured mountain Gorilla.
Half the total population of the world’s gorillas live in the Virunga Mountains in Uganda where the Zaire, Rwanda and Burundi borders meet. The other half is found in the Bwindi Forest in Uganda.
Amongst other Uganda attractions are the Murchison’s fall, Queen Elizabeth and the world’s largest freshwater lake – Lake Victoria. The diverse cultures as well as the hospitable people of Uganda are a major attraction to many.
