This country is a paradise for travelers. Whether you travel solo, in a group of friends or family with kids. It is a great destination for travelling on budget or adventurous people. It also provides shadow to those looking for some time out in relaxing and quiet place. It is all in one! From bungee jumping , rafting or wildlife safari, enjoying african culture and traditions up to amazing time with a cocktail by the pool.
So what are the facts you should consider while planning your next vacation?
In Uganda you get sun all year round! You can arrive any time of the year and you will always find very nice and friendly weather. The only limitation is high grass in national parks after the rain season, which is bit tricky for game drive safari, especially to see big cats. But for giraffes, elephants and buffaloes you are still perfectly fine.
Ugandans’ smiles are as warm as their sun. It’s been said over and over again that Ugandans are one of the most welcoming people in the world. They are very sociable and will not let you pass without few words or greetings. They are very curious about visitors and they want you to feel welcomed.
What makes your travel life easier is the fact, that English is an official language. Uganda albeit is officially English speaking, however in rural areas and villages most people speak only their local language or only few words in English, so be patient.
Another advantage you can only benefit from is that Uganda still isn’t among top tourist destinations. It means prices are still kept relatively low to compare other destinations. Even luxury relaxing day by the pool in resort is affordable.
Uganda is a home for many tribes and ethnic groups; there are tens of different languages spoken in Uganda. It is the cultural diversity that offers an authentic and enjoyable experience. You still can find tribes living in their traditional way. It is breathtaking to spend day with these people and experience real old Africa.
