Publisher Comments:

Somebody once said that if you planted a walking stick overnight in the soil of Uganda, it would take root before morning dawned. Of all Africas safari destinations, this is the most fertile. Its also the best destination in Africa for seeing a variety of primate species – visitors can spot more than ten types of monkey including mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. And if primate enthusiasts are found wandering round with imbecile grins, Ugandas birds have ornithologists doing cartwheels: more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded here making Uganda, in practical terms, the finest birdwatching destination in Africa. Moreover, in Ugandas premier savanna reserves, one can be almost certain of encountering lions, elephants and buffaloes.

Whether visitors want to climb to the snows of the fabled Mountains of the Moon, raft the headwaters of the mighty Nile, or marvel at the legendary tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, this sixth edition of Philip Briggs much-praised guide is the most comprehensive resource available.

Synopsis:

With fully updated information for visitors wanting to track mountain gorillas and chimps, spot some of Ugandas 1,000 bird species, or raft and kayak on the Nile, the sixth edition of Bradts Uganda provides the most comprehensive coverage on the market.
