In this fourth edition of Uganda: The Bradt Travel Guide, Africa specialist Philip Briggs provides fully updated information on every aspect of the country's tourist infrastructure, from national parks and gorilla reserves to Lake Victoria and the Ssese Islands. Uganda's attractions for the natural history enthusiasts are almost legendary. This guide features the places to see mountain gorillas and other primates, and the best reserves for catching glimpses of the country's 1,000 species of bird, which should keep even the most ardent birdwatchers happy. It is an essential companion for backpackers who will relish Uganda's compact travel circuit, including hiking opportunities in the Ruwenzori Mountains and exploration of Uganda's largest national park, the Murchison Falls.
