The northern region of Uganda has for a long time received limited tourism opportunities due to the wars that have been affecting the region. This has led to few safaris to Uganda directed to that part of the country. This is about to end since the ministry of tourism has really worked had to improve the region in order to promote tourism in the north.
There is great potential of tourism development in this region and so that’s why the emphasis has been put to develop it for tourism development, this is because of its diverse cultures especially after the wars that happened that side, this will help to increase Uganda safaris.
Kidepo National Park which is located in this region has greatly attracted many safari visits from the outside world due to its diverse wildlife and the fantastic accommodation facilities which are always appreciated b by the tourists who tour Kidepo.
Uganda Tourism Board has a plan to promote the cultural properties and historical sites including the displaced camps which are occupied by the people. Other attractions which could promote tourism to the north could be the culture of the people, historical sites like the one of Baker’s fort Patiko, and the Arua falls, these can attract many safaris in Uganda hence promoting tourism in the northern region.
The board said the roads which lead to the tourists attractions have been constructed so that tourists who visit this place can easily access the attractions. This will help to promote Ugandan safaris and at last tourism development in that area will be realised in the northern part of Uganda.
