Africa - Uganda (Chapter)
This is the Uganda chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
Emerging from the shadows of a dark history, a new dawn of tourism has risen in Uganda. It’s home to the tallest mountain range in Africa, the world’s longest river and the continent’s largest lake. And with half the remaining mountain gorillas residing here, and the Big Five to be ticked off, wildlife watching is huge.
