Uganda is famous as the “Pearl of Africa” in the travel circles, a name that conveniently wraps all the good things about Uganda in three simple words. The country sparkles with natural riches and melts with unique native and foreign cultures. Cultures are born, and some die, but over 50 tribes flourish within a 93,064 sq mi (241,037 sq km) inland nation, the size of Britain. The people of Uganda possess a beautiful, generous, and resilient soul—going through years of civil wars and political power struggle but still welcoming all kinds of people to their lands. 
Despite the country’s challenges, Uganda maintains an open-door policy to refugees based on traditional African hospitality. UNHCR and Global Citizen have recognized Uganda as the most welcoming country for refugees. Not related to refugees, but Uganda also holds the flag as a nation with the youngest population on the continent.

There are hundreds of awesome things about Uganda that can put the destination on your travel bucket list, but let’s look at these ten for travelers.

The highest density of primates and gorillas worldwide

Uganda harbors 20 species of primates among its rainforest jungles. Gorillas, chimpanzees, monkeys, and the most adorable of the adorable (though a bit gross) bushbabies all call Uganda home—as does one of the World’s fastest-growing human populations. The mountainous jungles of this tiny east-African nation are lush and endowed with animal and plant species.
Kibale Forest alone protects 13 primate species, the highest population density of primates globally, while Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga National Parks protect more than half of the total population of mountain gorillas.
