'Formidable in-depth information on native mammals and birds.' The Times 'Whatever corner of Uganda your next trip takes you to, this new guide will provide perfect company.' Travel Africa 'Bradt's Uganda guidebook has the most up-to-date information on trekking companies and basic travel resources, as well as some trekking route information.' Travel Africa 'If seeing gorillas in the mist appeals, this is the book for you. Primarily concerned with wildlife viewing opportunities, it gives formidable in-depth information on native mammals and birds.' The Times 'We had a successful filming trip, and the guide was great. I found it full of useful information, it was relevant, up to date and comprehensive. A good reference for anyone visiting Uganda with loads of interesting background information and tips.' Emma Richards, Smith & Watson Productions, UK 'Bradt's Uganda by Philip Briggs is a comprehensive guide to Uganda, complete with excellent background reading on both the mountain gorillas and the Batwa. Travel Africa "Having just got back from our first visit to Uganda for 15 years, I would like to thank you for your brilliant revision of the Bradt Guide. We have found the new edition a mine of information and interest all written with a delightful lightness of touch and real insight into each area." John Haden

comprehensive information on where to stay, and to eat, which is ideal for independent travellers.
the advice about driving is invaluable, if you're lucky enough to hire a car, this book tells you everything you need to know about the state of the roads, and the maps are clear enough for you to drive around the country with it alone. Lonely planet in comparison is less than 2/3 the size, with consequently less information
you'll regret it if you take any other guide book
where it's basically useless. For such an important archipelago the lack of coverage
As always the accommodation options aren't always the one someone who knows the places he visists
will want to take. My hotel in Kampala is not mentioned, nor in a number of other places I visit.
But having said that at times i've been stuck and the recommendations (not always the case with the competition) have been reliable.
Like many African countries people know very little about Uganda, but when you read a book such as this put together by genuine experts you realise just quite what is there. Thanks Bradt for turning my 'great' trip into quite frankly an eye-opening trip of a lifetime.
