Uganda was named the Pearl of Africa by the former UK Prime Minister Sir Winston Church when he was on a tour across Africa in 1907. He called Uganda so, because the country is endowed by Mother Nature more than any country on the African continent. Like many other visitors, Sir Winston fell in love with  the fresh water body lakes, rivers, mountains, climate and forests thereby making him to brand Uganda as the Pearl of Africa. No other country has ever been described as that and thus, there is one pearl of Africa which is Uganda.
