... is an absolute jewel of a country which lies to the north and west of Lake Victoria in east-central Africa, much under-rated and relatively little-visited.

The scenery along the western side of the country is awesome, some of the most dramatic on the continent, with dramatic volcanic peaks, lush tropical forests, flooded calderas, broad lakes, open savannah and verdant farmlands.

The main reason to visit Uganda is to head into the forests to track gorillas, chimpanzees and a host of other primates.

In between there are lesser opportunities to experience some more conventional savannah safari, with decent populations of elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras and kobs in a number of areas.

The main potential downsides are that gorilla permits are often in very short supply, that the country lacks quality savannah safari, that the weather can provide challenges almost throughout the year and that the price of visiting is unavoidably high.
