Tourism Promotion

In the area of Tourism promotion, the Missions continue to partner with some major tour operators and to advertise on their websites and hold some TV and Radio talk shows to promote Uganda. These efforts are encouraging and should be continued.

Some Missions like Ottawa, Berlin, Moscow and Brussels have undertaken a selection of some major tour agents to undertake promotional tours to Uganda. The work that was done by some of these Tour Operators to promote Uganda as the best tourists' destination have resulted in increased number of tourists from those couturiers. The Ministry wishes to encourage the Tour Companies to continue working with the Uganda Missions in various countries to promote Uganda. For example the Source of the Nile has been declared one of the Seven Wonders of Africa and that Uganda has a unique culture with 53 tribes. There is a lot of faith tourism to promote in Uganda e.g. Uganda Martyrs in Namugongo,, the Old Kampala Mosque, church crusades among other faith related activities.

Investors are welcome to promote Health tourism. Investments in this field will attract people to flock in for health purposes and investors quickly recoup on their investments.
We invite the Foreign Media to participate work with our Missions to market the beautiful weather and scenery in Uganda and we invite the tour companies and media houses to visit Uganda to see for themselves what Uganda offers.

We request the Tour companies and foreign media visit our Mission websites and the Uganda Ministry of Tourism Wild life and Antiquities, UWA, and UTB websites to see Uganda's tourism attractions.

The Upgraded Missions' websites are all linked to Ministry of Tourism, UTB, Tour operators, UWA, etc and can be used to view Uganda's attractions.
