Uganda's Tourism has come a long way to where it is now and a lot has been done to develop it beginning with the gazetting of the ten uganda safari parks of Queen Elizabeth national park, Lake Mburo national park, Murchison falls national park, Kidepo Valley, Semliki, Kibale national park, Mgahinga, Bwindi national park, Rwenzori Mountains, Mt. Elgon and wildlife reserves of Katonga, Semliki, Pian-Upe, Matheniko, Ajai, Bokora, Kabwohe and others.
Efforts have been made through creating the ministry of Tourism now in the hands of Hon. Rukundo who of recent promised to build the bridges in Rwenzori NP and also encouraging good accommodation (five star hotels). The tourism industry has also been allocated funds through the national budget and step ups like the Uganda gifted by nature project are all endeavors to develop the industry.Mountain gorilla safari
