(eTN) – German Prince Albrecht Zu Oettingen has expressed interest in investing in Uganda’s tourism sector. The prince, who was invited by Vice-President Prof. Gilbert Bukenya, recently described his planned investment as ‘a venture to provide better value for money for the local people’.

Oettingen made the remarks while touring Queen Elizabeth National Park, Mburo Game Reserve and Chambura gorge in Mbarara and Kasese.

He was accompanied by his wife, Princess Angela Zu Oettingen, their daughter Antonia and businessman Wilfried Pabst, who runs businesses in Zimbabwe and South Africa.

“Uganda’s flora and fauna is so impressive and ranks the country as one of the best destinations for tourism investment opportunities in Africa,” Oettingen said.

The prince was impressed by the Eland antelopes, Zebras, Topis, Impalas and birds found in Lake Mburo National Park.

At Chambura, the chimps, which live in the 100-metre gorge, carved out by the Chambura River, left the prince and his group mesmerised.

Oettengen also met President Museveni at State House, Nakasero.

They discussed value addition to agricultural products in Uganda, the tourism potential and how the wildlife areas could benefit their surrounding communities through proper management of the environment.
