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 writer 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 Uganda¿s most popular activity and this new edition provides expanded coverage of gorilla tracking options, describing the gorilla groups, 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 account of the rapid increase in choice of places to stay, with a more critical appraisal of the best options in every price bracket - upmarket, midrange, budget and shoestring - being provided.
Bradt's Uganda includes the most detailed maps of the country, 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 the most exciting - safari circuit in Africa, from the lush montane forests of Bwindi which protect the world's largest remaining population of mountain gorillas, to the tree-climbing lions of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Whether visiting on safari, for birdwatching, white-water rafting on the Nile, or for trekking some of Africa's highest mountains, Bradt's Uganda is the essential guide.
