UDI is very interested in the success of the Ecological Economy of Uganda and the world. Education creates generations who see beyond their immediate needs and into a more productive future! Our goal is to teach Sustainable Living practices that protect the natural beauty in Uganda as well as the wonderful culture that exists there.

 

Uganda is a land of incredible beauty with National Parks, astounding waterfalls, the Bwindi Impenetrable National Forest, which houses the mountain Gorillas, and much more. Winston Churchill called Uganda "The Pearl of Africa".  Despite its difficulties, beauty still exists and bio tourism is part of our Educational Plan.

 

Visit Uganda - The Pearl of Africa

  • Listed among the top 10 destinations to visit in 2013 by National Geographic!

  • Uganda is a place where Savannah meets the vast East African lakes and where snow-capped mountains bear down on sprawling jungles

  • Is home to half of the world’s surviving mountain gorillas and blessed with half of Africa’s bird species..  Kanungu is a great base for trekking the  highly endangered Mountain Gorillas

  • Is fortunate to harbor Lake Victoria, the second largest lake in the world forming the source of the Nile, the second largest river in the world.

In addition, you can explore other nearby wonders including: 

  • Lake Bunyonyi – one of Africa’s deepest lakes where you can enjoy hiking and canoe trips surrounded by birds and butterflies.

  • Lake Mburo, for an overnight to view zebras and additional wildlife
