Uganda invites you to experience the magic wonders of its rich natural heritage. Owing to a variety of habitats ( ecosystems) with abundant grass, Uganda supports an incredible range of biodiversity, and has unspoilt and pristine game parks.
And in order to protect and effectively manage these invaluable resources on a sustainable basis, the Uganda National Parks department was established in 1952. Presently the organization manages 10 parks. Uganda’s national parks reflect the extraordinary diversity of the country’s natural resources: fresh water lakes, swamps, mountains, forests, woodland, rolling plains and grassland.
