Uganda named in CNN’s best destinations to visit in 2023

Uganda’s focus on community and adventure tourism explains why it is such an unmissable opportunity for a tourist to visit the country on a 2023 traveller’s experience on the African continent.

Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is among Uganda's highlights for an impeccable travel experience.

Uganda made it back to the honourable list of best destinations to visit in 2023 by CNN Travel after the American television channel ranked the East African country as one of the top places to visit this year.

Under its list; Where to travel in 2023: The best destinations to visit, CNN says Uganda’s focus on community and adventure tourism explains why it is such an unmissable opportunity for a tourist to visit the country in 2023 on a traveller’s circuit across the African continent.

“There is considerable change brewing in Uganda’s travel offerings at the moment with the country christened the pearl of Africa now looking beyond the traditional staples of safari and wildlife spotting to appeal to both regional and international visitors,” said CNN Travel.

CNN says from the expansive shores of Lake Victoria to the snowy Rwenzori Mountains, Uganda is a beautiful wilderness playground, with opportunities for adventure including treks through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or up to the craters of the Virunga volcano chain or whitewater rafting along the Victoria Nile.

Keen to revitalize post-Covid tourism in all corners of the country, not just the big-ticket businesses offering wealthy visitors a glimpse of the Big Five beasts or mountain gorillas, it’s turned to marketing its other attributes.

Uganda has also presented itself as the best destination for hosting international conferences, meetings and events.

And that’s not all, there’s also an emphasis on connecting visitors with Ugandan communities promising tastes of Ugandan food, music and culture.

Last year the Uganda Cycling Trail, a 1,600-kilometer mainly unpaved 22-stage route was launched targeting all levels of cyclists from hardcore solo bikepackers to fully-guided easy riders.
