10x50' version, episode 5: Uganda
An aerial journey across the landlocked nation of Uganda, dubbed the “Pearl of Africa”. Fly over spectacular landscapes; the glacier-tipped Rwenzori mountains, ancient rainforests and crater lakes. Discover the country's rich and abundant biodiversity; encountering mountain gorillas and tree-climbing lions, while learning about the deadly microbes of Zika forest.
This is a land of vibrant customs and extraordinary people, from the forest tribes harvesting natural medicines, to traditional ankole cattle herders. Meet the 99 year old living with venomous cobras on a tiny island, daredevil kayakers at the source of the Nile and dedicated conservationists protecting the primates of Chimpanzee island. From the shores of Africa’s greatest lake, to the skyline of one of its fastest-growing cities, it’s time to see Uganda, from above.
