Attractions in Uganda
The Lake Victoria is the second biggest fresh water lake and provides various wildlife and adventure activities. Besides lake Victoria, Uganda offers national parks like the Bwindi Impenetrable forest and Mgahinga National Park where you can see gorillas, the Murchison Falls National Park with its beautiful waterfalls and wildlife, Kibale Forest National Park for chimpanzee tracking.
The main advantage to go for gorilla tracking in Uganda instead of Rwanda is its price. Where Rwanda charges 1500 USD per gorilla permit, is this only 600 USD in Uganda.
However, the country has more to offer. Visiting Kibale National Park gives you the opportunity to find many primates, like chimpanzees and the black and white colobus monkey. But Uganda is also home of some amazing wildlife. In the Murchison Falls you can go for game driving and try to catch the big 5! Lastly you can visit the source of the river nile and lake Victoria for some relaxing after your safaris.
