PEOPLE & CULTURE TO THE MOUNTAIN GORILLA’S AND NATURE WILDLIFE IN UGANDA
If you ever want to hear a true heartily safari experience from a client/traveler, then the best time is after the safari trip over coffee or a glass of wine as they cool off, while their mind transcends to the core of their soul to assess whether the decision they took was really worth it with you as part of this puzzle. Had an amazing chat with Eric Wendi after his safari, a German National working in Nairobi but often a regular visitor to Uganda for both business and getaway leisure. He summed his last safari as “The most Beautiful country in Africa, Beautiful weather, Warmly Hospitality and friendly welcoming people full of life”. Indeed he is spot on in all angles, unless you have Uganda on your Bucket-list, you will never truly know it. The hidden gem is not in the politics that often takes center stage but in the warm Uganda culture and its people besides the tourism heritage sites like the Bwindi impenetrable rain forest park famous for the Giant mountain Gorilla apes, the Tree climbing Lions of Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth National park, the Chimpanzee treks in Kibaale National park, The waters that thunder between the rock clefs of the Great River Nile in Murchison Falls national park.
