Overlooking Uganda as a travel destination would be a huge mistake. Majestic national parks such as Rwenzori National Park offer visitors a chance to view the Mountains of the Moon, the highest mountain range in Africa, and do so without the imposing crowds that plague the national parks of many neighboring countries. If your interests are more focused on observing the beauty of the mountain gorillas, Jinja is a must-add to your itinerary. If you are an adrenaline junkie or thrill seeker, a rafting trip down the Nile will not disappoint. No matter where your travels take you in Uganda, one thing is for sure: the people will welcome you with sincerity, smiles, and genuine hospitality. Welcome to Uganda, Mazungu!
