Discover the real Wakanda in Uganda

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – Lake Bunyonyi – The Rwenzori Mountains – Discover Wakanda on Safari in Uganda


Discover Wakanda on Safari in Uganda – The Pearl of Africa is where you can find not only Authentic Africa but places that were included in the Blockbuster Movie “Black Panther.” Three of Uganda’s Tourism Stars had a part in it.  Bwindi Impenetrable Forest with its Mountain Gorillas, Lake Bunyonyi, a scene from Lord of the Rings, and the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon. Both Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and the Rwenzori Mountains are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Lake Bunyonyi has gone beyond being a reminder of “Lord of Ring” but plays a starring role as background Scenery.

Where is Wakanda?  We and millions of other Ugandans, including two of the Stars in the movie think that Wakanda is in Uganda.  Wakanda-Uganda harmonizes quite well and so do three Starring Scenery Sites in Uganda, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Lake Bunyonyi and the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon. Besides being Scenic Stars in the “Black Panther” Movie, they bring with them legends, myths, and tales of old that are today part of the Tapestry that is the Pearl of Africa.

 Bwindi Impenetrable Forest 

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest -Home to the Gentle Giants of the Forest – the Mountain Gorillas. This ancient rainforest where thousands come each year for an incredible up-close encounter with the Mountain Gorillas. A place where you can still meet the first People of the Forest, the Batwa People who lived for thousands of years in this corner of Uganda.  They are pygmies who were hunter-gatherers only taking from the forest what was needed, living in harmony with nature leaving a low ecological Footprints. Today they still guide you through the Forest showing you how they lived in the days of old.

When you trek the Mountain Gorillas in this rainforest, you will see why scenes of it were taken in this incredible Park. and used in the “Black Panther” movie and you might just realize that you are in Wakanda on Safari in Uganda.


 Lake Bunyonyi – a Magical – Mystical Lake

Lake Bunyonyi has often been called a Scene from Lord of the Ring and it is no wonder that it became a scene, a scenic Star for the movie |Black Panther.  Visitors from far and wide have seen it as a place of serenity, a spot in Wakanda-Uganda to relax and chill out after gorilla trekking, after climbing one of the Mufumbiro Mountains that cook, the Virunga Volcanoes, , where you can paddle across the lake in a dugout canoe and visit one of its green and tropical the writings of Marinus of Tyre Islands with terraced gardens covering the hillsides.

Lake Bunyonyi, scenic, magical, the place of little birds in the local language, the 2nd deepest lake in all of Africa, where you can take rejuvenating nature walks, go bird watching on foot on in a dugout canoe afterward enjoying a Foodie Adventurer Delight Lunch of Crayfish anyway that you like, not native to Africa like most visitors here but brought here from Louisiana via Kenya many years ago and delighting visitors with meals that they did not expect.


 The Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon

It was the Greek cartographer Ptolemaeusput the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon on the Map of Africa at a time not much was known about the interior of Africa.  He did so on the basis of the travel accounts of the Greek Merchant Diogenes, recorded by Marinus of Tyre.  Diogenes traveled into the interior of Africa from the Tanzanian coast when he encountered the Rwenzori Mountains along with two great lakes, one of them being Lake Victoria.

The Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon are no longer speculation, myth or legends, they are real and the tallest Mountain Range in Africa. Its snowcapped Mountains are taller than the Alps, its foothills are places to be explored and discovered by those who cannot ascent its peaks.  It is no wonder that they were used as backdrop scenes in the “Black Panther” movie as being part of Wakanda.

For Visitors, the Rwenzori Mountains are off of the beaten Tourist Paths, those that venture into the Mountains of Legend and Myths delight in the reality of what awaits them.
