Tom Ford, a British Professional squash player who represented England and reached a career high world ranking of world number 60 in December 2015, has termed Uganda’s natural beauty as exceptional.
Ford spent a whole week in Uganda and visited Sipi falls, Kabaka’s lake, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, all of which he said were a dream come true.
“Kampala its self is amazing and gave me an experience of its own. I even got the courage to finally ride on a BodaBoda” Ford grinned from ear to ear.
The 25-year-old also recounted his experience at Sipi falls, which he described as one with dazzling scenery and stunning land scape.
While addressing journalists at the Uganda Tourism Board on Thursday, Ford revealed that he had always wanted to see the Mountain Gorillas.
“Tracking Gorillas was unforgettable, a once in a life time experience. It was by far one of the most incredible things l have seen in my entire life. It was surely a very big cherry on top of the cake” says Ford.
He later thanked the Uganda Tourism Board and its partners for making his dream come true.
Lilly Ajarova the Uganda Tourism Board Chief Executive Officer told Ford that Uganda still has a lot to offer and also encouraged him to come back and explore.
“Uganda is blessed with diverse natural beauty, cultures, landscapes, flora and fauna. You should come back and Visit Murchison Falls National Park, Semuliki National Park, Chimpanzees in Kibale and so many more destinations in Uganda” Ajarova said.
