Uganda, for its small size, makes it astounding to think of how much is packed into a space so small.
The country is an uncompromising expanse of lush green forests, pristine savanna grasslands dotted with countless species of bird, plant, and animal life; many water bodies including Africa’s biggest lake, high mountains, and some of the most friendly people on this planet. Uganda is a compacted paradise stretching from the source of the River Nile to the edge of the western arm of the Great Rift Valley, to the world’s largest volcanic base, close to the origins of man, and she features permanent snow just a few meters from the equator.
Uganda is a place undiscovered but one offering an opportunity to taste modernity juxtaposed with rural life, home to so many differently-diverse peoples and cultures; she might just be a summary of our very own planet, Earth. In this blogpost join Sir Winston Churchill in reiterating that Uganda is truly the Pearl of Africa.

My old folks call me Jonathan Benaiah but I prefer to go by as “The Ugandan Tourist“. I love to travel, write, take photos (of nature mostly). Ask me my best kind of trips and I'll tell you that it's those moments which allow me enough time in the African bush.
