The “Pearl of Africa”, as Winston Churchill referred to Uganda, is essentially a representation of the whole continent of Africa condensed into one country.
A spec of black amidst the green foliage. It is stirring! Your guide points up in the tree where a gorilla is minding its own business as if they aren’t even bothered by the humans.
Deciding that you want to go on a safari in Uganda is the easy part. How cool would it be to visit the source of the Nile River or live a real-life adventure by going on a gorilla trekking safari in misty mountains? This is the stuff that adventure and wanderlust are made of!
You are trekking in the Ugandan tropical forest. One moment you aren’t sure why you decided to do the trek, the other your guide motions to make a stop and points to the tree just near you. A large mountain gorilla is watching with curiosity. You fumble but somehow manage to take a photo making sure to capture this surreal moment.
