Traveling Uganda’s side is interesting, you could be bored in your own home, however you are likely to be amazed by the freedom from crowds in Uganda. The policy of sustainable capacity growth not only ensures there will be no environmental degradation through tourism, it also guarantees you a sense of spaciousness which is rare, deep south-west where boarders of Rwanda, Congo DRC and Uganda Meet, is a trip soon not to be forgotten. For its there that the visitor will meet – if your choose to make the trek – the rare and endangered mountain gorilla.
There are only two mountain gorilla population in the world – both in this region of Africa – and the gorilla number fewer than 700 all told. There only four National parks where you can see them, two of which are in Uganda: Mgahinga Gorilla National park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, the others are Volcanoes in Rwanda and Congo Gorilla parks.
Although viewing the Gorillas is certainly the culmination of any visit to Uganda’s south-west, its by no means all there is to see. As you follow on a Uganda safari trail, you will find that opportunities to observe wildlife, lake views, waterfalls or mountains, and cultural setting of small built houses along the road side, for instance, are free from intrusion of hordes of other visitors, Photography, painting and just plain awestruck admiration can be enjoyed in the peace and calm which are natural to such scenes of beauty and contemplation
The Region also boasts a number of beautiful lakes and waterfalls, particularly Lake Nabugabo found near Masaka, Lake Mburo National Park, a heaven for acacia-associated birds and a good variety of wildlife, and Lake Bunyonyi near Kabale district, which together with the neighboring Rukungiri and Kisoro districts is know as the Switzerland of Africa, largely because of the cooler climate and beautiful mountain scenery found there. Gorillas aside, this part of the country offers some spectacular walks and Hikes.
Along with the south-west of the country and mountain gorillas, the west is one of the most visited regions of Uganda. As their backdrop lush tea estates and rolling hills have the majestic, snow-capped mountains of the moon. The area is also thickly forested and contains three beautiful Lakes – Albert, George, and Edward (named after British royalty) – as well as several forests and game reserves and Four National parks, comprising one of the oldest, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale forest, Semuliki and Rwenzori Mountains National Parks.
The two Main towns/Cities are Fort Portal which is the Tourism city and Kasese which is 74 kilometer south of Fort Portal City. These are reached by road from Kampala, and before by railway. Both towns are at the foot of Ruwenzoris, in beautiful countryside.
Less popular than the Uganda’s west and South-west, the North-west is never the less a beautiful and lush region, containing the many wonders of Murchison falls National park. The area – particularly north of the Nile River bisects the park – suffered from rebellion in the 70’s – the 90’s, most wildlife was either scared off or destroyed. However the norther is now the most visited place on the especially the Murchison falls National park that has the falls that falls down to deep 50 meters down to the river Nile.
