Uganda, the Pearl of Africa
This was named by Winston Churchill in his popular book which was entitled *My African Journey*
He did so mostly when he saw the magnficience, colour, life of pople, a number of birds, reptiles, mammals, vegetation, and many others.
Since then, Uganda is amazed by the beauty of most wonderous things and natural wonders which make a highly growing number of tourists to come to Uganda and they definitely fall in love with the nature of this Pearl of Africa.
Among the others were John Hanning Speke and Richard Burton who also visited and explored Uganda in year 1858, and they were amazed when they found the beauty of Uganda.
John Hanning Hanning discovered lake Victoria,
These people were also surprised by the cultural of people where they saw a number of cultures along the Kampala city streets.
We also have Henry Morton who also visited Uganda among the first explorers, and one of the explores to refer Uganda as the Pearl of Africa. They were also amazed by the happy, and welcoming people of Uganda who used to always look colourful.
On tourism, we consider uganda indeed the Pearl of Africa not only because these explores named it before, but also when we look at all that Uganda has been gifted with, we feel much interested in renaming it the Pearl of Africa indeed.
Among the thing that make it the Pearl of Africa, we see the bio diverse, the most welcoming people, with the beautiful cultures.
When you visit Kampala city and other parts of Uganda, as you look as People, you see them dressing in different colors, and it makes them unique, and these people from Uganda are so welcoming.
