The Tourism Awards – Accolades and Recognition that Uganda has received


 Rough Guides – Picks Uganda in 2017:

Rough Guides Picks Uganda as the Fourth Best Destination in the world. Recognition such as this one is that added plus that Uganda deserves.  A country that has had a troubled past and is still seen throughout the world through the lens of its history, Idi Amin and Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army.

Rough Guides, once again remind people that Uganda is more, it is the Pearl of Africa, and its luster has been restored.  The Tourism Infrastructure is being put into places with new lodges and hotels being erected, with roads such as the Entebbe Expressway and more.

Uganda – as Rough Guides sees it is one of the Best Destinations in the world.

Time and time again, Uganda is selected as a Top Travel  Destination, and in spite of that, it is still Africa without the Crowds.


 National Geographic Traveller UK – Uganda makes the 2019 Cool List – 2019

National Geographic picked Uganda once again for the second time in 6 years.  This time is placing it on the UK Traveller Cool list. The reason in part, the price of permits for Gorilla Trekking, which made Uganda the logical choice for Safe, secure, and affordable Trekking.

Uganda, under the radar of many African Traveler, is certainly not under the radar of National Geographic, which has chosen Uganda twice in six years.

The affordable Gorilla Permits only enhance the attractiveness of Uganda.  Uganda has become the premier Gorilla Destination in all of Africa.

National Geographic made the right choice by picking Uganda and putting it on its Cool List.


 CNN Travel Picks Bwindi Impenetrable Forest as the most Beautiful Place in the World:

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was picked in 2019 by CNN Travel as the most beautiful place in the world. The ancient Afromontane forest that has been featured as a backdrop to the Black Panther movie is now the Star.

CNN Travel picks us as the most beautiful place in the World. We happen to agree totally and so many of visitors who flock here each year to trek the Gentle Giants of the Forest.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to about half of the mountain Gorillas that remain, but it is much more than that. It also homes to Chimpanzees, Forest Elephants, numerous birds, butterflies, Afromontane plants and trees.  A beautiful park that is a must to do and see.


 Uganda – Huawei – Number 3 Must photograph Country-2019:

Uganda, in a study of Social Media Posting, came out Number 3 – it was the third most popular Destination in Facebook picture posting out of almost 2 million postings reviewed.

In particular, it was Mgahinga Gorilla Park that was the photo object and that most often included Lake Mutanda.

We always thought it was one of the most beautiful settings in Uganda, and the study only confirms what we had known.

Just recently one of our Clients wrote to us telling us how they found the scene from their lodge overlooking Lake Mutanda toward Mgahinga Gorilla Park.

Another Reason why you should visit Uganda, one of the most photogenic Countries in the World.
