Holidays - Uganda

The present country of Uganda was forged by the British between 1890 and 1926. The name of Uganda was derived from the ancient Kingdom of Buganda.            

A multicultural country in East Africa whose diverse landscape encompasses the snowcapped Rwenzori Mountains and immense Lake Victoria - the principal source of the great River Nile. With abundant wildlife such as Chimpanzees, Gorillas, famous Big 5 at our 10 Savannah parks, and 1000+ rare bird species. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is a renowned mountain gorilla sanctuary, while Kidepo Valley National contends for best destination in Africa for wild game drives.                      

Game drives are a highlight of your visit to the Savannah national parks while on your wildlife safaris. Game drives can also be incorporated in your other Uganda safaris like the gorilla trekking, birding safari, and cultural safari itineraries by adding extra days to a Savannah national park. They provide the best way to explore the numerous national parks in custom-made safari vehicles such as; Safari vans, Land cruisers, and the larger Coaster buses which are comfortable enough while on safari. In Uganda, the most visited Savannah national parks are Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park, and Lake Mburo National Park. There are six other National Parks and twelve Wildlife Reserves.              

The earliest inhabitants of Uganda were the Stone -Age People. These people were gradually absorbed or replaced in the first millennium A.D. by the incoming agriculturists and pastoralists. At the time of the coming of the British, there were over thirty ethnic and cultural groups in Uganda. These ethnic communities could conveniently be divided into four broad linguistic categories namely; the Bantu, the Luo, the Atekerin, and the Sudanic.
