“Uganda, the Pearl of Africa! I discovered this country while road tripping. On the motorcycle and in a 4 × 4 I have seen the most amazing, green, lush landscapes. This gem may be in the shadow of big brothers Kenya and Tanzania, but that makes it very pure, undiscovered, and relaxed. And the diversity is enormous! From low plains to mountains, from desert to jungle and lakes … And then the hustle and bustle of Kampala! But wherever you are in Uganda: you will meet fantastic people everywhere.”

Uganda has been awarded The Pearl of Africa and for a reason! The country is tropical and green and pleases your eye with its thundering waterfalls, steaming jungles and mirror-smooth lakes. In the south of Uganda you will find rugged mountains, the crater lakes surprise you in the east of the country and a vast desert landscape in the north of Uganda completes the whole experience. Not to forget the bounty islands of swaying palm trees in Lake Victoria or the wild Nile that meanders through the emerald green landscape!
Uganda is also the place to be for the unique wildlife. The Safari Parks are inhabited by animals that cannot be found anywhere else in the world, such as the rare, mysterious mountain gorillas or tree-climbing lions. But this African pearl does not only have a lot to offer in terms of nature. Experience the real Uganda through the eyes of the inhabitants. Cruise through the bustling, creative cities, taste the diverse flavors of the local food, dance to the beats of Ugandan music, and hear inspiring stories. Questions?

For a month, Charlie and Marieke traveled around Uganda on a motorcycle and in a 4 × 4. The result? A lot of new friendships, super cool new experiences where you will not encounter many other tourists in khaki safari hats, and a hard disk full of footage to dream away. Unfortunately, half of the footage from this trip has been lost due to a broken hard drive (always backup, kids) … So not a complete story, but enough to convince you to book a return trip to this amazing green country! Check it out!
