In the heat of travels
We present Uganda as an extrordinary destination for adventure travellers and nature discoverers.
Uganda is a country in East Africa. It is bordered to the east by Kenya, to the north by South Sudan, to the west by Congo-Kinshasa, to the southwest by Rwanda, and to the south by Tanzania.
The climate in Uganda is equatorial and the altitude modifies it. Southern Uganda is wetter with rain generally spread throughout the year. Further to the north a dry season gradually emerges; at Gulu about 120 km from the South Sudanese border, November to February is much drier than the rest of the year. The northeastern region has the driest climate and is prone to droughts in some years. Rwenzori in the southwest on the border with Congo-Kinshasa receives heavy rain all year round. The south of the country is heavily influenced by one of the world's biggest lakes, Lake Victoria, which contains many islands. It prevents temperatures from varying significantly and increases cloudiness and rainfall.
Uganda is famously called the "Pearl of Africa" by Winston Churchill, because of its beautiful national parks and nature. It is home to one of the most diverse and concentrated ranges of African fauna including the mountain gorilla and the common chimpanzee.
Most travellers come for the gorilla Safari, but other major draws are the chimpanzees, ornithology, trekking the Rwenzori and visiting the source of the Nile River.
