EAST AFRICA Uganda
Home to the largest freshwater lake in Africa, Uganda offers some of the most unique opportunities for photography fans. Widely known as the “Pearl of Africa”, there are many reasons you should consider visiting Uganda.
If water is your thing, Uganda has some stunning sights. The sprawling Lake Victoria is the perfect place to capture plenty of still water shots. But if you’re looking for something a little more action-packed, the rough Murchison Falls has you covered– this awe-inspiring waterfall crashes down with a force like few others. Uganda is also home to Jinja, which is the source of the enormous Nile River.
Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary
One of Africa’s Big Five, rhinos are majestic beasts. Their great horns and huge bodies make them some of the most attractive specimens for wildlife photography. A visit to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary practically guarantees that you will have the chance to grab some great shots of these stunning beasts in their natural habitat.
The Many National Parks
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Uganda’s national parks. From the vast peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park to the perfect scenery of the Lake Mburo National Park, there is something for every photographer to see. These parks also give you the best chance to see Uganda’s varied wildlife in their natural habitats.
A collection of 84 islands, each of which has its own flora and fauna, the Ssese Islands feature enough variety to take up several days of your trip. Here, you’ll have the chance to snap some shots of glorious white beaches, stunning scenery, and, if you’re lucky, some wild chimpanzees.
The Great Pearl
The “Pearl of Africa” moniker is well-earned thanks to Uganda’s stunning natural scenery. Filled with national parks, Uganda offers some of the most unique shots shuttlebugs are likely to ever capture. Make Uganda your destination of choice and be sure to bring plenty of memory cards for your camera.
