Sir Winston Churchill described Uganda as "the pearl of Africa". It is easy to see why. Its reputation as Africa's friendliest country is attributed to both the people and its eco-friendly environment.

This lush and stunning country offers a unique safari experience where you can view lions prowling in their natural habitat, track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth and see hippos and crocodiles in tropical areas, before getting up close to the piece de resistance: the Mountain Gorilla.

Kidepo Valley National Park, located in the semi-arid valleys of Karamoja, is a remote but beautiful area which boasts a multitude of bird species including the rare Black-breasted Barbet and the Karamoja Apallis.

Lake Mburo National Park harbours many species of mammals including zebras, impala, buffalo and varied birdlife. The small size of the park makes it ideal for trekking through the Rubanga Forest or taking a boat trip on the lake where pelicans, heron, cormorant and fish eagle gather. The game drives also offer the opportunity to see antelope and warthog.

The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is home to half the world's population of the highly endangered Mountain Gorillas. This unsurpassable wildlife experience allows the visitor to get just five metres away from these bewitching creatures. It is also the only forest in Africa where both the gorillas and chimpanzees co-exist together.

Murchison National Park is bisected by The Nile and its scenery is dominated by savannah eco-systems and dense woodlands. The game-viewing consists of giraffe, buffalo, lion, elephant, Nile crocodile, hippo and oribi. The Murchison Falls provide the opportunity to white-water raft, where the world's longest river will propel you along on an exhilarating ride.

The country that provided the filming location for the African Queen will provide you with an inspirational travel experience that encompasses raw natural beauty, a multitude of terrains and unparalleled access to its extraordinary wildlife.
