: Uganda, straddling the equator and perched on the northern shore of Lake Victoria, is marketing itself as an eco-destination. Its gorillas represent perhaps the most powerful eco-image of them all, but there is so much more to Uganda. Travellers can go gorilla or chimp tracking; climb Mount Elgon or the Rwenzoris; look deeper into Africa's past with its Kabaka traditions; visit the Seses - tropical islands in a freshwater lake; speed down the River Nile in a helter of white water; or just sit and enjoy the stunning landscapes. Or the traveller can learn more about the country by taking a village walk or even do some voluntary work to put something back into the country. This guide to Uganda offers comprehensive information enabling the traveller to get off the standard trail and experience so much more of the country. The guide provides detailed information on national parks and game reserves along with up-to-date listings on the practicalities of travel.
