Best Places to Visit in Uganda
Once referred as ‘the Pearl of Africa’ by Winston Churchill, this tiny country the size of Oregon was also voted the ‘best tourist destination, 2012’ by Lonely Planet. These are some of the friendliest and hospitable people in Africa, so do not be offended if they offer you pan-fried grasshoppers; it is an honor that they bestow only upon a few. It is probably the only country in Africa where tree felling is prohibited, and the law actually enforced. Come and sample the delicious Matooke, a form of plantain cooked in banana leaves. Most importantly, go visit the gentle and magnificent Mountain Gorillas up in Bwindi National Park and contribute towards their conservation.
