 1  Amos Garry Great Service
I would like to appreciate the services that are offered by this company. we recently had a trip with them and to be sincere, they have the best tour guides in the region

 2  Nereide Fox Gorlla Tracking in Uganda
We read that Winston Churchill once said Uganda is “the pearl of Africa” - indeed this is probably the most over-quoted line in Uganda. Perhaps he said this when he saw the extensive green hills, vast lakes, wild animals and rainforest. The landscape is even more impressive than Ethiopia. We saw a rolling ... view more patchwork of greens, browns and yellows in short, narrow strips of land farmed by hand by the local women. So vibrantly green is Uganda that we mused that the quote should read “the emerald of Africa”.
