What is Uganda?

Uganda is a landlocked country located in East Afirca. It is boarded by Sudan in the North, Kenya in the East, Tanzania in the South, Rwanda in the South West and Congo in the West.

It lies along the equator and has a populaion of about 38 million people. It experiences two weather paterns, dry and wet season twice a year. Any time is a good time to visit Uganda. A lot can be done in Uganda from tracking the mountain gorillas and chimpanzees, safari drives (game drives), white water rafting, horseback riding, boat rides, nature walks, mountain climbing among many others. We have 22 protected areas 10 of these are national parks and 12 are game reserves.

Uganda features four major traditional and well-established kingdoms: Buganda, Toro, Bunyoro and Busoga. Additionally, Uganda has many other different tribes-peoples practicing age old cultures, customs and traditions including the pygmy Batwa in Bwindi, the Banyakole – famed for their magnificent long-horned cattle, as well as the nomadic Karamojong living in the remote, semi- arid North East, bordering Kenya and South Sudan. Historical relics include the Kasubi tombs (burial grounds of ancient Baganda kings) and the Uganda Martyrs Shrine (a much more modern religious shrine), all amongst what is reputedly the world’s most hospitable people, the Ugandans – making Uganda one of the most ideal cultural tourism destinations in the world.
