East Africa - Uganda (Chapter)
This is the Uganda chapter from Lonely Planet's East Africa 9 guidebook.
For a small country, there's lots that's big about Uganda: the tallest mountain range in Africa, the world's longest river and the continent's largest lake. With half the remaining mountain gorillas here, along with the Big Five, wildlife-watching is huge.
- jaunt through the jungle to marvel at mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
- take on the wild waters of the Nile River, some of the best white-water in the world
- check out the world's most powerful waterfall on a wildlife-watching bonanza of a boat ride up the Victoria Nile at Murchison Falls
- restaurants and accommodation
