He highlighted a few things that make Uganda such a good safari destination, such as the snow capped mountains, the river Nile, Murchison falls. Hopefully the Canadian travel; agents will promote safaris in Uganda when they get back home. One of the team’s senior officers Daniel Gordon Brown acknowledged Uganda’s fabulous tourism potential and the need to exploit it. He encouraged investment in tourism saying that there was more money to be earned in tourism than in any other sector. He also encouraged wildlife protection and conservation. He also urged Ugandans to guard their rich heritage jealously. Uganda wildlife authority’s Dr Andrew Seguya, was part of the team that has worked to make this visit happen and was present at the dinner. In his short remarks, he said that the country was avoiding mass tourism in order to preserve its heritage. Uganda Wildlife Authority has for example limits the number of visitors entering the parks or the number of people on gorilla tracking trips as a way of preserving and conserving its wildlife. The visiting travel agents were asked for their honest opinions about Uganda and tourism in Uganda as a way of helping the sector improve. The cooperation between the two countries concerning tourism was the highlight of the evening. It is definitely just the beginning; hopefully Uganda will reap more from its extensive marketing.]]>
