Uganda lies on a plateau of over 1,000m: the Ruwenzori Mountains in the east, home to Mountain Gorillas, are second only to Mounts Kenya and Kilimanjaro in height. The country is a lush one: rainforest cloaks the hillsides, the River Nile flows through and more than 25% of Uganda’s ‘land’ surface is water, including the great inland sea of Lake Victoria.

Gorillas and chimpanzees in misty rainforests, prehistoric shoebills stood sentinel, roaring waterfalls, tree-climbing lions. This is a very different Africa.
