Uganda has launched a strategic plan that calls for focusing on marketing and development of exceptional tourist destinations, for example, nature-based Eco-tourism, games, cruise, culture, and heritage; and promote the tourism industry in the country.

We are promoting more tourist attractions, for example, Musambwa Island which was recently launched by the minister of tourism Hon Maria Mutagamba. In 2012, over 120,000 tourists visited Uganda’s Islands on Lake Victoria and other islands in the country.

The third part of the strategy is to improve and market new tourism destinations that offer a flash of Uganda’s exceptional natural wonderfulness and rich cultural heritage.
