Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa to the Seychelles in the oceans, Morocco, Egypt to the West of Africa Ghana, Senegal, and to the small island of Sao Tome and Principe. We’ll admit, the competition for the title of Africa’s best country is fierce. Here at Banange tours we may be a bit biased but we’re certain that Uganda is right up there too. From its diverse culture to its food, its flora and fauna (nature and environment) to its hospitality where everyone is welcome, there are hundreds of reasons why a visit to Uganda is a must.
Both foreign tourists and locals, Uganda has pretty much everything you could want a top tourism destination, as long as you don’t mind a bit of dusty and bumpy roads here and there but yet again that still adds to the thrill.
There’s never a shortage of things to do
Though Uganda is relatively a third world country compared to other world destinations, it certainly doesn’t lack on things to do. Whether you’re in Uganda for a few days or longer, there’s always something new and exciting going on. There’s a number of festivals throughout the year, the famously adorned Nyege Nyege festival that takes place annually around early September. Nyege Nyege Festival is now considered the most important 4-day international music festival in East Africa for both its one of a kind curation and its unique Afropolitan party vibe.

Other events such as the annual blankets and wine festival in Kampala, Karamoja annual festival in the north eastern region, Imbalu season in Mbale and other parts of the country.
Apart from festivals, there are also adrenaline activities such as white water rafting on the River Nile, safari game drives in different national parks of the country and gorilla trekking and hiking are some of the top activities in the pearl.
Food, food and more food
A trip to Uganda is not complete without gobbling yourself into the “ROLEX” yes, a Rolex! This shouldn’t be mistakenly confused with the high end European lavish wrist watch. Rolex comes from “rolled eggs”! and is a fast food combining an egg omelette and vegetables wrapped in a chapati.
