Uganda is a lush and beautiful country combining plains and savannah with volcanoes, crater lakes and jungle. Home to half of the world's remaining mountain gorillas, its main attraction are the primates, and is also an ornithologist's dream. Uganda is still developing as a tourist destination with new luxury lodges opening and game numbers rising fast, so it's definitely worth visiting before the rest of the world.
