Uganda beats Spain in international poll

05, December 2014


An international online survey conducted by The Guardian, one of UK’s leading newspapers, has established that Uganda is a better holiday destination than Spain.


The poll was conducted last week by the online version of the paper, the second most popular UK newspaper website, with a daily average of 2,937,070 browsers.


Answering the poll question “where would you prefer to go on holiday?”, 79% of the respondents said they would rather visit Uganda than head to Spain. The 79% alluded to Uganda’s beauty, wildlife, scenery, culture, the hospitable people and the landscape from the snowcapped Mountain Rwenzori to the open savannah, as the lure to the diverse country sitting astride the Equator.


The Guardian conducted the poll after President Yoweri Museveni last week said Uganda is a better tourist destination than Spain.
