Places to Visit
Winston Churchill Prime Minister of United Kingdom once dubbed Uganda “The Pearl of Africa”, saying:
“The kingdom of Uganda is a fairy-tale. You climb up … and at the end there is a wonderful new world. The scenery is different, the vegetation is different, the climate is different, and, most of all, the people are different from anything elsewhere to be seen in the whole range of Africa … I say: ‘Concentrate on Uganda’. For magnificence, for variety of form and colour, for profusion of brilliant life – bird, insect, reptile, beast – for vast scale — Uganda is truly the pearl of Africa.”
Uganda has not changed since then; and as a matter of fact, it has become an even better destination. CNN in 2019 placed Bwindi impenetrable forest, home to the Mountain Gorillas as the best destination in the world to visit.
Your trip to Uganda will certainly be the most memorable ever as you plan to interact in the natural with rare primates; the Mountain Gorillas; spectacular viewing of thousands of rare bird species in addition to natural wild game animals barely found in other African safaris; the hippos, crocodiles, tree climbing lions etc.
Like the Swiss, Ugandans are one of the most friendly people you will ever find; distinctly peaceful with a natural welcoming and caring posture to foreign visitors.
To facilitate your travel plan to Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, The Uganda Mission in Switzerland is partnering with local Swiss Travel Agencies and Swiss Newsletters to show-case Uganda as a must go destination of choice.
Remember, it is always summer in Uganda!
