Gulu

3.5
With convenient proximity to numerous attractions, the bustling administrative center of Gulu serves as an excellent jumping-off point for exploration of the region. The nearby national park lies tucked within a valley encircled by mountains and rocky ridges, while cheetahs, ostriches, and lions roam in conservation areas. Sightseeing in Gulu proper includes a university and numerous religious temples. Mind that the region remains a ground for conflicts between government forces and insurgents, so remain extremely cautious. Gulu is in Northern Region.
