2012 is not only the year that Lonely Planet declared Uganda as best country to visit in 2012, but it is also the year when Uganda is celebrating its Golden Jubilee Independence Anniversary on October 9, 2012.
Uganda became independent in 1962 and in 2012 the Pearl of Africa – Uganda celebrates its 50th Birthday and Ugandans know how to celebrate and there is much to celebrate – for one thing Uganda is a peaceful, safe and secure country to visit – Uganda has gone through a lot of changes during the last 50 years and the last 26 years under the leadership of President Museveni Uganda has become a more stable nation – Ugandans love Uganda and are proud to be Ugandan no matter of their cultural roots and background – they are Ugandans and call Uganda their motherland and home.
Uganda – invites you to come and take part in the ongoing celebration taking place in the Pearl of Africa – take in the cultural events – meet its people and its children (Uganda is the youngest nation on Earth) – visit towns and villages where celebrations are taking place and learn of different cultures and different ways that will simply amaze you
Not only are the people of Uganda awaiting your Golden Jubilee Anniversary visit – so is the country filled with its scenic wonders, UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon, the vast sea called Lake Victoria with its sparkling emerald Ssese Islands, the ancient and historic River Nile, scenic lakes such as Lake Bunyonyi and Lake Mutanda that will just mesmerize you, its endless Savannah Plains, its Rainforests and Jungles, the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Elgon, the Western Rift Valley – no wonder Winston Churchill called it the Pearl of Africa.
Ugandans are proud of Uganda and its natural treasures such as the Mountain Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the Chimpanzees of Kibale Rainforest Jungle, the Tree Climbing Lions of Ishasha, the Birds (over 1040 species) found in Uganda – with the Shoebill Stork being the Most sought after.
Ugandans invite you to join in the celebrations of their 50th Birthday Party in 2012 and visit its Parks such as Kidepo Valley, Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale Forest, to name a few.
Uganda is 50 years old as a nation but it is still authentic Africa, raw Africa, magical Africa, Africa condensed into a small country the size the state of Oregon, landlocked but it boasts sandy beaches along Lake Victoria and the Ssese Islands. Uganda and the friendliest people in Africa are celebrating their Independence Anniversary and they do not like to celebrate alone – join the celebrations that are taking place this year in Uganda, especially the cultural ones.
Uganda-the Pearl of Africa awaits you in 2012 as the Independence Anniversary Party continues – and you will be most likely be greeted with the friendliest Ugandan greeting – “you are most Welcome.” From Kampala –Uganda – The Pearl of Africa …jon
