Uganda is a relatively small African country in East Africa which has a lot of 'grand' stuff to offer. One does not just get the reputation of 'pearl of Africa', one has to earn it. And Uganda does that in style. Uganda is a land of superlatives: you will find the largest mountain ranges, including the Virunga Mountains that connect Uganda, Rwanda and RDC; Mount Elgon, the widest free-standing volcano in the world and the Rwenzori with its eternally snow-capped peaks. The country offers an overwhelming number of breath-taking landscapes and countless national parks!
