Uganda is known as the “Pearl of Africa” due to it being arguably the most beautiful country on the continent and a top safari destination. It is made up of a variety of biomes and habitats, including savannah landscapes, rift valleys, and tropical to subtropical forests. These ecosystems are home to a remarkable diversity of plant and animal life, most famously its endangered mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and other primates. The country is also a birder’s paradise, with over 1000 species, many of which are found nowhere else on earth. Primate safaris in Uganda are a once-in-a-lifetime experience for visitors, as they take you into the natural habitat of these incredible creatures. Equally as special are Uganda's game parks hosting the usual plains game once can expect to see in Africa such as the tree-climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Other highlights include snow-capped mountains in Rwenzori, the mighty Murchison Falls and the iconic Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
