From the North, Great Explorers from Europe especially England who were sent by the royal Geographical Society managed to arrive in Uganda through the North.
These Explorers were after their grand mission of finding the source of the Nile, which is now Lake Victoria (indeed they were tourists!).
As they arrived in East Africa, they also learnt about the business potential of East Africa, which later led to the establishment of the Imperial British East African Company (IBEACo).
Later on, in recent times, Former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill came to Uganda on Tour and named Uganda “the pearl of Africa” in his subsequent publication.
