Uganda Listed among National Geographical Society’s Top Ten Wildlife Destinations

In just a few days ahead of this year’s World Travel Market (WTM) held in London, the Lonely Planet has again lifted Uganda (the Pearl of Africa) to a higher level by naming it among their top ranked and must visit destinations in the whole of East Africa. This is working favor of Uganda’s tourism marketers who have attended this year’s WTM since this is giving them yet another promotional reinforce.

The fact that the National Geographic has named Uganda as one of its top ten ‘Must see Wildlife destinationsworldwide is an addition support to the already existing plea that Ugandans keeping out asking the rest of the world to spend some time on a Safari in Uganda visiting some of our beautiful national parks, one of them being the Kidepo Valley National Park which was also mentioned by CNN as the best park in Africa.

Uganda has 10 national parks and it is the only nation that has two parks where you can find the famous mountain gorillas and these are the Bwindi impenetrable and Mgahinga national park both located in the south Western of Uganda, offering different tourism attractions. There are other attractions including mountains like Mt. Elgon and the Rwenzori Mountains, The Murchison Falls on the Victoria Nile which at one point squeezes through a narrow  gaps of rocks just  before  pouring about 50 metres below therefore forming  an amazing water fall of about 7 metres wide.
