Did you know Lonely Planet has voted Uganda the No. 1 destination to visit in 2012? So I'm sure Uganda will feature on here soon!
I fell in love with Uganda as soon as I touched down here three years ago. It's a fabulous, friendly, welcoming country that's easy and safe to travel around, boasting incredible biodiversity, breathtaking scenery, stacks of adrenaline activities and a real love of life. The weather is great (especially for us Brits who are used to the cold and the drizzle!)
Winston Churchill called Uganda the 'Pearl of Africa'.

We go off the beaten track, from safari adventures to walking my rescue dogs through the slums - in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa and Ethiopia - so far!
