Because Uganda still offer Mt. Elgon and Mt. Rwenzori National Parks. These are amazing parks with incredible wildlife and landscapes. All in all, the Ugandan parks are less overcrowded compared to Kenyan and Tanzanian parks.

Uganda is a small country with a lot of variety to discover (landscapes, wildlife, vegetation, cultures), while distances are small; most places can be reached within a day. Tourism is only developping, you can find peace, tranquility and adventure. Some nice lodges in different price ranges offer basic or upmarket accommodation. Uganda is a safe country and can be travelled individually. The climate is pleasant, not too hot. People are extremely friendly and welcoming in general.

Uganda, fantastic place to see the gorillas
Overall rating
4/5

We had a fantastic time in Uganda. The people were really friendly, the birding was great (although we're not really birders) and we felt safe. The outstanding attraction has to be the gorillas. The hour that we spent with them was totally magical, I once in a lifetime opportunity which tops any other wildlife experience I've had. Aside from the gorillas, you can probably get better sighting animals (especially the large cats) in other countries, mainly because of the scrub and jungle landscape in Uganda. However, the gorillas make up for any lack of lions, leopards etc.

Uganda is gifted with a lot of wild life species, many mountain ranges and rivers and most parks have dirt roads making for a good bush vibe. The birding experience is also awesome because of the variety of birds species.

The Country is so lush and green and is packed full of wildlife wherever you look. The rolling hills and mountain scenery is stunning to wake up to, it's not over crowded and the lodges are all small taking on only a handful of guests at a time. There are birds galore even just in the hotels surrounding gardens and numerous other reptile, butterfly and primate species just doing what it does everyday and you get a real feel of nature and serenity.

I was not disappointed in experiencing the wildlife and other animals, as well as the scenery of Uganda! My Nikon experienced over 1800 'clicks'! The photography was phenomenal!

Wildlife: awesome! For Bwindi, mostly, of course, although I can imagine someone interested in birds could have fun in Kabale. I plan to go back there some day for other parks, to see the 'big five', as I didn't get a chance to do a 'regular safari' last time.
Scenic beauty: equally awesome! I wish I could have gone deeper into the forest, but that was up to the gorillas, not me ;) Lake Bunyonyi is also a place not to be missed - I took a 3 day trip in dugout canoes there, and the place as green as Holland. Forget the dust-filled footage you often see on TV... visit the rolling green hills in southern Uganda!
Bush vibe: travelling in a dugout canoe, a muddy motor ride, tracking gorill'as - yeah, there is certainly a bush vibe - even though both the canoe trekking and the gorilla tracking were basically very organised. It's not as if you're alone out there, but you won't be queueing to climb the volcano (another one for the to-do list!) either.
