Uganda Visa For Iranian Citizens - Requirements & Fees

Uganda is one of the few areas in Africa where you may observe the unique activity of tree-climbing lions. A colony of tree-climbing lions casually strolls, stretching limbs on oak trees throughout the day in the southern of Queen Elizabeth National Park. A sight that draws hundreds of visitors to Uganda.

Lions play an essential role in preserving ecosystem health and balance by predating on herbivores, typically targeting unhealthy individuals to keep disease away and dispose of corpses. Because of this, tree-climbing lions are essential to Uganda's economy and ecosystem.

Lions may be discovered in three major savannah reserves in Uganda: Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo Valley National Park, and Queen Elizabeth National Park. Lions are among the most desirable creatures for tourists visiting Uganda, second only to mountain gorillas.
