Uganda has been listed on CNN Travel’s list of the best places to visit in 2023, following the East African country’s ranking as one of the top places to visit this year. According to the article, Uganda’s travel offerings extend beyond the traditional staples of safari and wildlife viewing, attracting both regional and international visitors.
Under the blog; Where to travel in 2023: The best destinations to visit, CNN clearly says that Uganda’s emphasis on community and adventure tourism explains why visiting the country in 2023 on a traveller’s circuit across the African continent is such an unmissable opportunity.
CNN Travel network goes ahead to recognize the major tourist attractions in Uganda that make it unique from other un-named destinations in Africa. The fable Mountains of the moon, the shores of the Nile’s source Lake Victoria, plus a thrilling water raft along the river, and not forgetting a trek through the famous impenetrable forest of Bwindi National Park – one of the few homes to the few left mountain gorillas.
“And why not? From the expansive shores of Lake Victoria to the snowy Rwenzori Mountains, Uganda is a beautiful wilderness playground, with opportunities for adventure including treks through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or up to the craters of the Virunga volcano chain or white-water rafting along the Victoria Nile.“ Writes CNN ravel.
The destination Uganda boasts a diverse range of vertebrates and other species found nowhere else in East and Southern Africa. Furthermore, the accessibility of its significant forests in comparison to those in other parts of Africa makes it an unbeatable destination for viewing African forest creatures in their natural habitats, ranging from mountain gorillas and chimps to a colorful array of butterflies and birds.
What sets Uganda apart from other African safari destinations is its relatively high proportion of closed-canopy forests. The dense growth embraces Afro-montane forests like those found on Mount Elgon, which share many similarities with similar habitats on Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya, and Semliki National Park—an easterly extension of the Congolese Basin and West Africa’s lowland rainforest.
Uganda as a nation has turned to promoting its other features in order to revitalize post-Covid tourism in all corners of the country, not just offering wealthy visitors a glimpse of the Big Five animals or mountain gorillas, but Uganda has also positioned itself as the ideal location for international conferences, meetings, and events.
Not only that, but there is a focus on connecting visitors with Ugandan communities and culture, promising tastes of Ugandan food, music, and adventure.
