Uganda Explores New Tourism Potentials

Kampala — The tourism industry in partnership with the late Sir Samuel Baker, a British explorer who visited Uganda in the late 1870's have started a campaign to explore for new tourism sites throughout the country.

Under the Great African Expedition, led by Mr. Julian Fisher, the family will also look for new tourism potentials in southern Sudan, Kenya, and Tanzania.

Uganda's Tourism minister Maria Mutagamba lauded the Sir Samuel Baker family for retracting their father's original footsteps at Kabwoya as he viewed the geographical location of Lake Albert.

Mutagamba stressed that Kabwoya is now a tourist attraction centre as they look forward to including it on itineraries for tourists coming to Uganda.
