Moyo – Home of Unforgettable Scars


The Rich Heritage of Moyo District

Welcome to Moyo, a district steeped in history and natural beauty in the heart of the West Nile region of Uganda. As you enjoy your West Nile Uganda safari adventure with Miombo Safaris, don't miss the opportunity to discover the hidden gems of Moyo District. Historical Significance Moyo District is not just a place; it's a journey through time. Dufile Fort, a prominent historical site, serves as a testament to the district's past. Established by Sir Charles Gordon in 1874 and later occupied by Emin Pasha, this fort played a pivotal role in halting the slave trade activities in Northern Uganda and South Sudan. This region holds a significant historical past and tie to the slave trade history of the region – especially when seen through the forts – so we honor its history by referring to the district as the “Home of Unforgettable Scars.”
