Uganda has identified herself as one of few the few African destinations developing at a very high rate when it comes to tourism. Uganda is gifted by nature and has all the reasons why one should visit Uganda in 2018. Uganda is gifted by so many natural and cultural attractions yet un discovered by many. Uganda still remains virgin and most tourist interviewed say that this was their first visit and promised to return with their friends.
Affordability of gorilla permits is among the reasons why one should visit Uganda in 2018. It should be noted that while gorilla trekking can be done in Uganda, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda increased the price of her Volcanoes national Park from USD750.00 to USD1500.00 what people called doubling the price. Uganda on her side decided to scrap discounted gorilla permits but maintained the price of a gorilla permit at USD600.00 per person per trek. This therefore means that it is very expensive to trek in Rwanda than Uganda. With USD1500.00 that is paid for one gorilla permit in Rwanda, one can trek twice in Uganda and still save USD200.00. Thus affordability of gorilla permits in Uganda should be one of the reasons why one should visit Uganda in 2018.
Different primate experiences found nowhere.
Among the reasons why one should visit Uganda in 2018 are the different activity options most especially when it comes to primate experiences. In East Africa, its only in Uganda where one can do gorilla habituation experience in Bwindi, Chimpanzee habituation experience in Kibale National Park and Mgahinga National Park. With your USD1500.00, you can spend 4 hours with mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park something that you cannot find anywhere in the world. With USD220.00, one can spend the whole day with chimpanzees in Kibale National Park still exclusive to Uganda as a tourist destination.
Uganda is a relatively stable country where safety and security is now guaranteed. For over 30 years now, the government has ensured that there is peace and security in the whole country and has introduced tourism police which is a special branch to cater for tourist security while in Uganda. A combination of the above as well as other attractions indeed gives you all the reasons for one to visit Uganda in 2018.
