//From press release//
The New Nordic Group announces their first project launch in Africa with Hotel Terra.
Hotel Terra, New Nordic's first 4-star project with a soaring atrium that features terraces bursting with local flora, guests at Hotel Terra are instantly immersed in a forest-like setting.
Hotel Terra will be located in Entebbe. The charming city was once the capital of Uganda during the early years of development and is now regarded as one of the fastest growing cities in Africa. We believe Entebbe was a natural choice when introducing Uganda, due to its relaxed pace of living and attractive position on the northern shore of Lake Victoria. Because of its position, Entebbe has a lot of economic potentials and visitors often refer to it as the 'hub of Uganda'; with its many restaurants, shopping mall, golf courses and nightlife. In addition, the city prides itself with Uganda's only international airport, making the commute to beautiful Entebbe swift and easy.
Uganda’s history dates back over 50,000 years ago, and its story is one that has resulted in a rich culture. With a population of more than 45 million people the country has become particularly diverse in its cultural and religious practices: In the Bugandan Kingdom alone, there are 52 recognized clans! Furthermore, the population is known to be very hospitable, so much so that the country topped the list of friendliest countries in the world, according to a survey conducted in 2017 by InterNations.Thus, Uganda is a stable and prosperous nation. The people receive a high level of education and many are fluent in English, this skilled labor force is instrumental in the continuing increase of the country’s economy.
'The Pearl of Africa' is home to the source of the mighty river Nile, Lake Victoria, majestic mountains and waterfalls to explore. Not to mention its four-legged and winged habitats, the wildlife is definitely both colorful and exciting to observe on safaris. For instance, the famous Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is well worth a visit. It is actually estimated that 50 percent of the world’s population of mountain gorillas’ lives in Uganda!
