TOURING THE PEARL OF AFRICA

"Uganda the Pearl of Africa"

Uganda is truly the Pearl of Africa because of the abundant biodiversity, colour, profusion and serene beauty. The country has got a variety of things to offer to international tourists. Uganda boasts some of Africa's most stunning landscapes, crystal clear lakes, snow-capped mountains, tropical rain forests, savanna landscapes, primates, birds and much more. The unique environmental attributes and the moderate climate can be ascribed to the country's location on the equator.

After the conference, on 28 September, international delegates will get the opportunity to tour some of the amazing, not-to-be-missed tourist sites found in Uganda. Different places will be toured, including the Uganda Heritage centre, Buganda Kingdom Headquarters, Buganda Kabaka's palace and the Uganda Wild Life Education Center.
