HOMELAND UGANDA AND RWANDA
National Parcs in Uganda
The predominantly rural communities in Rwanda and Uganda are connected by a network of agricultural tracks located far away from any major roads. In Rwanda serpentine trails lead through a breathtaking labyrinth of high mountains and deep valleys, secluded rivers and picturesque lakes. Uganda, on the other hand, is characterised by the rich diversity of produce that flourishes there (coffee, tea, bananas, pineapples, maize, sugarcane), the plantations of which are easy to access via maintained tracks.
10 national parks and 11 wildlife reserves allow visitors to observe elephants, giraffes, rhinos, buffalos, hippos, eland antelopes, crocodiles and all species of big cats including lions and leopards in their natural environment. From snow-covered mountain peaks (Ruwenzori) to Africa’s largest lake (Lake Victoria), from arid savannahs to tropical rainforests, Uganda offers every geographical-climatic contrast that a traveller could ever wish for. Come to Uganda and Rwanda and experience the amazing diversity of these amazing countries by yourself!
