Why you must visit Uganda for a safari?

Uganda is generally a unique country, unlike many other African destinations and shelters many iconic structures of world importance. Uganda shelters Africa’s biggest fresh water lake that is lake Victoria which also pairs as the only true source of River Nile– the world’s longest river with a distance coverage of over 5,100 miles from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean Sea in North Africa.

Lake Victoria being surrounded with sparkling islands, is a fine source of exploration and relaxation along its wide ranging sand beaches. After a long day/trip one can lessen up from any of these beaches, be able to feel the breath of life straight from this lake.

Right in the city of Kampala, the capital of Uganda there lies Africa’s only Bahai Temple, this is mainly for those interested in knowing more about the Bahai’ history and beliefs. This temple is situated on Kikaaya-a hill also protruding through Kampala. It is an attractive park like format with various lovely trees especially fruit tree species and flowers as a green-carpet like grass with clean clear originated paths leading to the destiny. This appearance of this temple (attractive park like format) attracts several people who sit on the grass and have a peaceable time. And this being the only Baha’i Temple in Africa makes Uganda a prime trip and tour destination to several travelers.

Not only that but the existence of the pointy snow-capped Rwenzori mountains(mountains of the moon) located in the far south west parts of the country is just a right spot to test your passion for adventure. This is Uganda’s tallest mountain and East Africa’s largest block mountain and its formation is due to the process of faulting. Regardless of its height, this mountain is covered by snow year in and year out much as it lies along the equator where temperatures are evidently high.

The Islands of Ssese that consists of approximately many islands (84) found along the north-western shore of Lake Victoria. The fabulous white sand beaches make this island a fine place to kick back, lessen to a good book read after your Uganda safari. You can relish a good canoe ride but you are recommended not to swim due to the risks of Bilharzia and the infrequent tours of hippos or crocodiles. Be part of the visitors to engage in such a trip to this wonderful island and trust me you will have a memorable venture in Uganda.
