Uganda - General Information

Uganda is a lush, green country in East Africa. Straddling the equator, the country’s dominating feature is water: the vast blue of lake victoria, the ever-flowing river Nile, Lakes Edward, George and Albert, and the expansive network of wetlands and marsh. Dramatic mountains punctuate the landscape: the snowcapped Rwenzori Mountains (Ptolemy’s famous ‘mountains of the moon’), the volcanic ranges of the southwest, the the massive Mount Elgon in the East of the country.
It is the Pearl of Africa, a country with fantastic natural scenery and a rich mosaic of tribes and cultures. Travelling through Uganda you will be captivated by its beauty, overwhelmed by the friendliness of its people and intrigued by all that Uganda has to offer.
