    OTOH, I've heard really good things about visiting Uganda lately. In general it is supposed to be a beautiful, safe place to visit.

    Yes, Uganda is easy travel, especially Kampala. It's definitely not Africa Africa. Easy tourist infrastructure. I've usually come in on South African (SAA), part of Star Alliance, like United.

    The gorilla thing isn't for me, but I guess the tourists like it.
    I was in Kampala for some bloody riots in the streets. I can't even remember the impetus, so I spent a couple of days on lockdown, but never any feeling of danger, just a little inconvenience.

    If you like United, for Star Alliance, you can connect to Brussels Airlines in BRU, which flies to EBB via KGL. I think the flights are thrice weekly. I've flown the KGL-EBB-BRU route once, and have flown twice to BJM on Brussels Airlines. I found it fine.
