Uganda could be considered a ‘Primate Trackers’ paradise as it is home to 13 different species of diurnal and 6 kinds of nocturnal primate. They can be found in many of the parks throughout Uganda. The vast number of primates sets this country apart from other East African countries such as Kenya and Tanzania, since you can find a much greater variety in one park.
The National Park covers an area of approximately 1978km² and was named after Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her visit in 1954.
Known as the ‘pearl of Africa’, Uganda may be compact but it has a good infrastructure and is rich in culture and history with an impressive and diverse wildlife population.
If you are looking for a destination that offers everything, consider a trip to Africa. This vast continent is as diverse as they come and it is one of those enchanting, special places that touches your soul in a profound way.
