President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has revealed that Uganda is the best tourist destination in the world.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Museveni, who chairing the NRM CEC retreat at Chobe Safari Lodge, said he made time to meet leaders of a group of 250 Israeli tourists who are visiting Uganda.
“This group came here via a chartered direct flight from Israel, something that had not happened since the early 1970s,” Museveni said.
“I welcome them to Uganda. Our country, given its location along the Equator, has perhaps the best all-year weather in the world. We also have lots of tourist attractions, from wild game in our parks to other features like the Source of River Nile,” he added.
He explained that from the amazing gorillas in Bwindi in Western Uganda to the breathtaking Sipi falls in Eastern Uganda, any tourist would be spoilt for choice.
“Importantly, it is the warmth of Ugandans that would make any tourist feel at home here. Uganda is the best tourist destination,” he said.
