“The whole trip was an amazing experience that I dont think you could do in another African country due to the diversity of vegetation, birds, primates and animals. Uganda is not as promoted as say Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa which is a shame. I think you do your best to promote it but is a fab country. ”
