Is Uganda Safe

I saw a very interesting story on Uganda last night on the Travel Channel. The gist of the story was that Uganda is now a very stable and safe country and the wildlife has come a long way in the last several years. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Yes, I saw the same program. I visited Uganda and Rwanda last August, and I did a trip report which I will now bump to the top. I found Uganda very safe. My visit focused on two of the sites highlighted in yesterday's program -- Queen Elizabeth NP and Bwindi. I traveled overland, not by presidential helicopter, and found the people welcoming and friendly, although the roads were not great. While the wildlife viewing in QENP doesn't rival that in Kenya or Tanzania, you will see some interesting animals, and the gorilla experience is unparalleled.
