The capital city of Uganda is Kampala and it has several great attractions of its own. The Uganda Museum is an excellent stop to learn more about the history and culture of the country, and the Uganda Crafts 2000 craft market is the place to visit for handmade souvenirs. The city isn't that close to the main safari parks in Uganda but the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is just a short drive from the city and a very good spot to see otherwise rare Black Rhinos.
Kabarega National Park
Also known as Murchison Falls National Park, Kabarega is in the north-west of Uganda near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (though it doesn't actually cross the border). It's Uganda's largest park and the only one that has a regular population of the "Big Five" African safari animals. You will be able to see elephants, leopards, lions, buffalo and possibly rhinos. The Murchison Falls on the Nile River is another place to visit within the park.
Queen Elizabeth National Park
The smaller Queen Elizabeth National Park is at the south-west corner of Uganda, between Lake Edward and Lake George. In this park, you can see chimpanzees, buffalo, hyena, elephants, lions and more than 600 species of birds. Because of the lakes, there are regions of grassland as well as swampland so there are many landscapes to see.
Mount Elgon National Park
Mount Elgon National Park crosses the border with Kenya, and is at the eastern corner of Uganda a little north of Lake Victoria. Within the park is Mount Elgon, an extinct volcano that makes up the centre of the region. Because of the altitude, there are heavy forests here rather than the more typical grasslands in the other parks. You can also see caves, waterfalls, gorges and some amazing cliff faces. Elephants and buffalo are the common animals here.
