for birding with tiniest sunbirds, iridescent
in the morning light, the massive lumbering yet
silent elephant, disappearing like a vapor behind
the trees, the chimpanzees crashing about the
forest canopy, the lugubrious gorilla, chewing

with rocky kopjes. The Rwenzori mountains with

Key for Uganda Tourism Industry
Sustainable Tourism has great potential for driving
economic growth in Uganda. Tourism is a mechanism
for job creation and image improvement and when
combined together with elements of sustainability,
it can help conserve natural resources including
Wildlife green space and national parks. Also
it increases the quality of life of Ugandans and
more so the participating communities and it protects
and sustains local cultures and heritages.
