Home to Africa’s highest mountain range, the source of the Nile and the planet’s highest concentration of primates, Uganda has plenty to boast about. Get your bearings in the welcoming capital of Kampala and watch free outdoor performances at the National Theatre. Lace up your walking boots and hike with elephants in the Rwenzori mountains, or head to Jinja for every activity under the African sun, from quad biking and horse riding to the world’s best rafting. For a truly unforgettable experience, take a gruelling trek through the rainforest of Bwindi National Park and reap the rewards of a seeing a rare mountain gorilla.
