Uganda is saturated in color; the outstanding natural beauty of its people and its landscapes have always stirred inspiration in travelers and residents. Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African Savannah meets the West African jungle. Where else but in this impossibly lush country can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees through the rainforest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippo and crocs before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of a mountain gorilla?

This pocket of huge primeval forest in the Virunga Mountain range is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth and has therefore been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The forest floor is damp and laden with leaf mold, matted vegetation and fallen vines. Clamber up and down the slippery slopes in search of a glimpse of the elusive gorillas.
