Uganda is a land of fable, a land of mists and enormous inland seas, of diverse people and the last of the Gorillas. This East Africa territory has attracted people of a multiplicity of races and tongues to its land for hundreds of years. Today’s travelers are, however, not drawn to Uganda because of its wealth in ivory and other riches that were obtained by destroying its natural heritage but rather visit this beautiful country to sample this richness that is manifest in its warm and friendly people, its enchanting landscape with its variety, its views of endless blue waters and the mighty River Nile and its population of wildlife in the conservation parks of Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls, Lake Mburo, and Semliki among many others.
In Uganda, the Bwindi impenetrable forest is the sanctuary for almost half the world’s population of Mountain Gorilla’s ( About 330 of 600 ), which is the rarest race of Gorilla. Established as a safe habitat for several families of mountain gorilla , it is now the location of an an important scientific conservation program. Gorilla Tracking visits are limited to small groups.
