Uganda National Parks - Wildlife Parks in Uganda

Mostly not considered as much by tourists who instead go on safari into the neighboring countries like Kenya and Tanzania, Uganda has been described as the ‘Pearl of Africa’ such is its natural beauty and charm. The landlocked country is home to a diverse array of ecosystems, wildlife and bird species, vegetation, rain forests, and even rivers and lakes that are fascinating to explore and, untouched and wild, they are stunning to behold.

The undoubted main attraction has to be the mountain gorillas for which Uganda is renowned, easily spotted in Bwindi National Park. Viewing these Silverback Gorillas up close in their natural habitat is simply awe-inspiring and certainly makes for unforgettable memories.

With amazing whitewater rafting and the serene Lake Victoria also on offer; this lovely country will astound you with all that there is to see and do. Below are the most beautiful national parks in Uganda which should give you some inspiration as to what you just have to see in this country.
