Located in Eastern Africa on the Equator, Uganda is often called the Pearl of Africa. It is a country with fantastic natural scenery and a rich mosaic of tribes and cultures. It is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle and is a lush and beautiful place, with a wealth of natural resources. Despite being landlocked it is a well-watered country with many lakes and rivers.
Uganda has the best of everything that is Africa. It is home to the highest mountain range in Africa, the Mountains of the Moon in the Rwenzori National Park, and at Lake Victoria, it is the source of the Nile.
Stability has returned to most parts of the country after the traumatic years of Joseph Kony and the child soldier war. Despite the trials and tribulations of the past, the Ugandan people offer heart-warming hospitality.
