Also a popular destination for movie productions including the “The Last King of Scotland,” Uganda is due to hit the big screen again, The Oscar-winning star of “12 Years a Slave,” Lupita Nyong’o, reportedly in the country to shoot the Mira Nair-directed film, Queen of Katwe. The film, which is scheduled for release in 2016, will portray the career of one Phiona Mutesi, a chess prodigee who grew up in the sprawling Katwe slums, and her coach Robert Katende.
We’re sure the Hollywood buzz surrounding the Pearl of Africa will make it a star-studded destination in 2015 and you won’t want to miss out on our 18-day Mountain Gorillas To The Mara departing 30 May, as you’ll have the chance to track these endangered primates.
