some very "out of the way" places to visit so if you want adventure then this could be the place for you

There are only two places in the world where you can watch Mountain gorillas.
Uganda has 2 rainy seasons and is therefor so lush, plus you have Mountain, lakes and craters. There are 1061 species of bird with must be record.

While the city of Kampala, in my opinion, is just another dirty & crowded African city, the countryside & wildlife are very special.

On the rafting, which I recommend very much, you see only local villagers, almost no other tourists (except the english bar - also very nice..), dynamic view with great wildlife, and pure adrenaline. Besides this, you have also the chimps jungle and the great Safari I've talked about earlier.

Uganda is a very warm and friendly place, with few of the hassles you find elsehwere, even Kampala itself proved welcoming even in some of the poorer areas of the centre. Safari-wise, still not the level of game viewing of other countries, but you can't fault it for beauty in the parks. Friends of mine have also recommended Murchison Falls (where I hope to go this year - 2012). Fort Portal is a good base for visiting the Ruwenzoris, one of the Gorilla viewing areas. My visit to Uganda was to visit friends, and we used their own vehicles (4wd) with no guide with no problems. A very enjoyable experience throughout my 2 week stay.

Beside mammals, the avifauna is just incredible diverse, be prepared for many new species on your personal list!

In Uganda you can see the green (more rainy) Africa, and you see two kinds of great apes. In other countries are more great herds (Tanzania, Kenya).

Uganda is a very good (motorbike) safari destination. Beside all the other African wildlife you can see there, its one of the view country's where you can spot gorillas in the wild. We made an unforgettable safari through Uganda on motorbikes but the possibilities traveling by car or even bike are also good.

See the source of the Nile and the Mountains of the Moon in one trip.
Overall rating

Unlike other safari destinations in East Africa, Uganda has diverse geography--big rivers, mountain ranges and lakes-- that break the monotony of the high plains and make great backgrounds for photos. Uganda offers serious mountaineering, whitewater activities and gorilla trekking, in addition to the standard bush safari. Ugandans are friendly and more of them speak English than denizens of neighboring countries. It's well worth a visit.
