Uganda is called the “Pearl of Africa” as a result of Winston Churchill’s reference to the East African country in his 1908 book, My African Journey. His use of the descriptive metaphor was inspired by his impression of the country as an example of magnificence in its “variety of form and colour” and its “profusion of brilliant life”.
This was the inspiration behind the Pearl of Africa Hotel that will reflect the local culture to its guests and the magnificence of the country.
