Somebody once said that if you planted a walking stick overnight in the soil of Uganda, it would take root before morning dawned. Of all Africa's safari destinations, this is the most fertile. It's also the best destination in Africa for seeing a variety of primate species - visitors can spot more than ten types of monkey including mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. And if primate enthusiasts are found wandering round with imbecile grins, Uganda's birds have ornithologists doing cartwheels: more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded here making Uganda, in practical terms, the finest birdwatching destination in Africa. Moreover, in Uganda's premier savanna reserves, one can be almost certain of encountering lions, elephants and buffaloes. Whether visitors want to climb to the snows of the fabled Mountains of the Moon, raft the headwaters of the mighty Nile, or marvel at the legendary tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, this sixth edition of Philip Brigg's much-praised guide is the most comprehensive resource available.'Formidable in-depth information on native mammals and birds.'?The Times'The most comprehensive and best current guide.'  Traveller'This book deserves a place on any kit list.' Adventure Travel MagazinePhilip Briggs has written and co-authored ten Bradt travel guides, and has contributed to numerous other books, travel and wildlife magazines.
