This has made tourism as the biggest income earner to Uganda. This is mainly according to the Economic and statistical Analysis of the tourism industry in Uganda.This means that the more tourists attracted to Uganda, the more safaris generated which leads to increased revenues to the country. The reports showed that over 100,000 tourists get attracted to Uganda and this helps in adding 111% to the exports and 1.6% to the GDP of the country which helps in developing the economy of Uganda.The increase in the revenues was reached from the survey which was conducted from the data from the tourists leaving Uganda, and how much money they spent during their safaris in Uganda, all this proved that tourism is the leading sector in Uganda.The study identified that the tourists were mostly satisfied with their safari trips to Uganda, however, transport, poor visitor information and quality of customer service as the major problems still facing the tourism sector.
