FASCINATING COUNTRY – GREAT POTENTIAL
Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. It borders South Sudan in the north, Kenya in the east and in the south a large part of the border with Tanzania runs through Lake Victoria.
The famous mountain gorillas live in the mountainous border regions to Rwanda (in the southwest) and the Congo. The border with the Congo runs across the entire west of Uganda.
Uganda was a British colony until independence in 1963.
Uganda is a highlight reel of the African landscape. With its dense, misty forests, snow-peaked mountains, glassy lakes and sprawling savannas, it is no wonder Winston Churchill dubbed this the “PEARL OF AFRICA”.
A few more facts
Uganda’s equatorial climate is tempered by its elevated altitude.
In most parts of the country, the average maximum temperature is between 20°C and 27°C during the day, and the minimum between 12°C and 18°C.
This makes the country a true nature and wildlife paradise, as it guarantees the best conditions for the thriving of both the flora and the fauna that are typical of the East African region.
