The ever-present menace of one Joseph Kony and his so-called Lord's Resistance Army has tarnished the image of Uganda in the minds of many tourists, but it is truly one of Africa's up-and-coming treasures. Yes, you'll have to be cautious, and there are warnings to be aware of when traveling to the northern regions' contested and disturbed areas.
Uganda, on the other hand, is a safe and fascinating place for the most part. Hippos humph through the wetlands, and lions lounge in the acacia trees. It's a land of rain-streaked forests and hazy slopes where chimps can be found. It has Lake Victoria's lapping waters, as well as the Victoria Nile's twisting channels.
