Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. For safari enthusiasts, Uganda is filled with many wonders that have turned it into a top tourist destination.
Uganda’s capital city is called Kampala. It’s about 44Kms from Entebbe International Airport, the main entry point into the country by air. Entebbe Airport to Kampala city transportation is mainly by Airport Taxi although you still have the option to Rent a Car for private transfer.
Visitors can explore the crystal-clear lakes like Lake Victoria, the Nile, and many other bodies of water. Mountain lovers and hikers have the Rwenzori Mountains in the south-western part and Mountain Elgon.
Uganda is not short of animals and birds, if that is your poison. The many national parks in the country are hosts to some of the most endangered animals, like the mountain gorillas. You will also see zebras, hippos, elephants, and lions, to name but a few.
There are many tourist attractions in Uganda if you have the time to visit but if you are low on time, you can simply visit the Kasubi Tombs in Kampala city. This is a cultural site with a rich cultural heritage of the Baganda tribe.
The biggest hospital in Uganda is Mulago Hospital. There are several other private hospitals from which you can get fairly good health care services. There are also therapy caregivers if you are in need of Physio or Speech therapy in Uganda.
While it is illegal, there is wide practice of sex tourism in Uganda! Tourists in Kampala often get offered sex by the city girls in exchange for money!
While there are 4×4 self drive car rental services in Uganda, driving in Uganda can be challenging because of the poor roads and reckless driving.
