According to a Press Release from the Uganda Tourism Board, the UK Government has recently loosened its travel restrictions on Uganda.
According to an article by the New Vision, British citizens have got the green light to travel to all parts of Uganda after the UK government today put the advisory to the lowest level.
Also earlier this year, Uganda was ranked 4th among the Top 10 countries to visit in 2017 by the Rough Guides, a UK based travel guidebook and reference publisher.
This is good news for Uganda, especially at a time when a number of AUTO registered tour companies plan to travel to London to market at the World Travel Market show taking place from 6th to 8th November, but also a general encouragement for more visitors from the UK to travel to Uganda.
Located in the heart of the African continent, right in Africa’s biome richest zone spanned by the equator, soaked by waters from the world’s longest river and with some of the continent’s most iconic geography, Uganda is that ideal place the olden days’ visitors found so mesmeric. The people are welcoming, their diverse cultures will charm you, their dances will leave you regaled. Everything about this country is to fall for including the food and the weather.
Travel Southwest to see the largest population of man’s remaining population of mountain gorillas living in a 25,000-year-old life-filled rainforest; or visit west to see the astounding Rwenzori ranges that stand above the western arm of the Great Rift Valley; or continue northwest for a complete big five safari experience; or fly to the northeastern corner of Uganda for trip down memory lane with the Ik tribe; or drive East for an adrenaline party in the Adventure capital of East Africa; or still take a nightlife tour around Kampala. Uganda is “end to end one beautiful garden”, and this is just a summary.
“We welcome you to Uganda, the Pearl of the African continent”
