  1. Great news for the East African tourism sector.
    There’s no doubt that Uganda hosts some of the main & beautiful attractions in Africa.

  2. This is interesting news to hear, I am so proud of my country Uganda – the pearl of Africa. Also one of the few countries where you’d get to see the mountain gorillas.
