Tourism to Save Uganda

"Bill Gates, one of the richest men in the world, has visited Kigezi region twice in a space of 10 years - the last being two months ago, because he regards it as one of the best places on earth", 

It is not only Bill Gates who thinks Uganda is a beautiful place worth visiting. Uganda was voted as number one tourist destination for 2012 by Lonely Planet (the largest travel guide book and digital media publisher in the world). Virunga volcanoes in South Western Uganda, was identified as one of the top 20 places to visit in the world by National Geographic Channel. Bwindi is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park was voted Africa's number one birding site by the African Bird Club, Trip Advisor rated it the best tourism hotspot because it is serene and attractiveness and increased gorilla population.

The tree climbing lions of Ishasha in Kigezi wildlife reserve was voted number one picture in November 2010 by National Geographic. Seguya said Uganda Wildlife Authority has rebranded the national parks in Kigezi region. Bwindi is The Ultimate Gorilla Experience and Mgahinga is Where Gold meets Silver.
