Uganda is known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’ due to its stunning scenery. It boasts the source of the mighty Nile, the spectacular Murchison Falls, crystal clear lakes, rolling green hills, misty forests and snow capped mountains. The people of Uganda are fun, friendly and easygoing and are guaranteed to find a special place in your heart that will make you want to stay for longer. Uganda is also paradise for wildlife and nature enthusiasts. Not only is it home to chimpanzees and gorillas, as well as a host of other impressive mammals, it’s also home to more species of birds than anywhere else in Africa. Living and working as part of the community, you’ll help local adults and children improve their standard of living in a sustainable way and support various conservation efforts to safeguard the future of Uganda’s most endangered animals, the white rhino.
