Bradt's Uganda has for many years been considered the go-to source of information for travellers heading to or interested in this extraordinary country. This new ninth edition of the most comprehensive guide available has been fully updated by Philip Briggs, arguably the world's most experienced guidebook author and certainly the most experienced writer on Africa, and also includes a new full-colour wildlife section with over 100 colour photographs.
Mountain gorilla tracking is Ugandas most popular activity and this new edition provides expanded coverage of gorilla-tracking options, describing the gorilla groups and their locations - in short, everything anyone who dreams of encountering these remarkable primates needs to know.
Accommodation listings and descriptions have also been completely revised, taking into account the rapid increase in choice of places to stay, and providing a more critical appraisal of the best options in every price bracket.
Bradt's Uganda includes detailed maps of the country, updated or created from scratch using GPS by the author, and this new edition also offers increased coverage of Karamoja and the northeast, a major growth area for tourism.
Uganda boasts the most biodiverse - and arguably most exciting - safari circuit in Africa, ranging from the lush montane forests of Bwindi, which protect one of the world's largest remaining populations of mountain gorillas, to the tree-climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Whether you are visiting on safari, for birdwatching, white-water rafting on the Nile or trekking some of Africa's highest mountains, Bradt's Uganda remains the essential companion guide.
