Uganda has long been overshadowed by popular destinations such as Kenya, Botswana and South Africa but the ‘Pearl of Africa’ (as it is often referred to) is slowly emerging from years of neglect. The East African nation, which had a vibrant tourism industry back in the 1960s, has suffered through years of conflict and misrule by presidents Amin and Obote – decades during which the economy faltered and Uganda earned the reputation of being one of the most troubled countries in Africa, a place where few tourists, other than the most adventurous, dared to venture.
