As Winston Churchill put it Uganda is the “Pearl of Africa”. The landscape is varied with savanna, lakes, swamps, mountains and forests. This variation gives us a rich animal life with both the lions of the savanna and the primates of the forests. In addition to this you can find an abundance of different birds, with over 1000 species recorded. The people of Uganda are in general friendly and welcoming. You can be sure to have children wave to you along the road in the countryside and will probably not leave the country without being asked “How are you muzungo?”. The word muzungo is used for westerners and means literally “aimless wanderer”. In Uganda 33 different local languages are spoken but you can get by on English since it is the official language and widely known.
