Uganda Karamoja Cute golden Snub Nosed Monkey

Once the domain of only the most adventurous of travellers — up until five years ago it was a closed district which required travel permits to enter — Uganda’s Karamoja region is now officially open for tourism, and well worth the visit. The north-eastern border of the region is characterised by rugged volcanic highlands which make for fantastic hiking, while the region’s former isolation has preserved the culture of its nomadic, agro-pastoral people, the Karamojong.
