traveller, old or new, knows, there is one thing every wanderer worth his salt
has on his bucket life. And that is going on a wildlife safari in great, wild
Africa. And what better place to choose that the tiny country that somehow
manages to hold almost all of the African majesty within its borders? A wildlife
tour in Uganda is where all your childhood dreams of adventure and exploration
can come true. You just need to reach out and grab the opportunity.
country in Africa has something to offer to everyone. It is home to the
majestic and mighty mountain gorillas which gives you the once in a lifetime
opportunity to go for a gorilla Uganda
safari. Here also lies the source of the Nile,
that life-giving river we all grew up
reading about. In the very arms of the river Nile, you can go white water
rafting. And, if you are looking to get your blood pumping, even more, you can go for bungee jumping in the
tempestuous cliffs that adorn the land.
But Uganda is
not just about the mountains and
wilderness. The land is diverse in its features, from woods to tropical sandy
beaches and glistening lakes. The shimmering Lake Victoria, which is also the
largest lake in the continent, is full of serenely cosy islands where you and
your loved ones can rest after a long and warm safari.
Perhaps one of
the best parts about Uganda is its climate. The average temperature of the
place is 22 degrees and it is pleasantly warm for most of the year. It has two
rainy seasons but even during those, the
weather is comfortable enough to travel in.
Often termed the
“evergreen country”, all of Uganda has an abundance of greenery all through the
year. And amongst the emerald wildness shine a riot of colours, of flowers, of
fresh juicy fruit and peculiar and many-hued
animals who quickly slip away into darkness. During your safaris, you can enjoy
all of the honey-scented fruits available
around you. The thick yellow juice of the mangoes can make your taste buds
dance. The papayas are soft and succulent. But it is perhaps the jackfruit that
takes the cake here. It is sweeter and softer than anything you will have ever
tasted, the flavours setting your mouth alight like delightful nectar. Numerous
types of bananas are also available here, making the country the second largest
producer of bananas in the world.
Unlike its very
crowded neighbours, Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda is mostly calm and peaceful throughout the year. This makes it an almost
perfect destination for couples who are adventurous by nature but also like
some time to themselves. There is never a lack
of anything to do here. With over ten beautiful destinations that are covered
by safari, Uganda is bountiful and diverse. It is home to over 400 mountain
gorillas and many endangered and vulnerable species. You can explore the
impenetrable Bwindi forests and track chimpanzees and gorillas. Or you can
while the day away, fishing and watching the Murchison falls crash into crystal
foam. Or let time simply slip away, as you hold your lover’s hand, and take the
meandering trail through the wilderness, letting dreams merge into reality, and
darkness into emerald depths.
