Uganda is a small but impressive, year-round destination in the heart of East Africa. It is a land characterised by great lakes, waterfalls, dramatic mountains and amazing wildlife populations. Home to the source of the Nile River, the continent’s largest lake, Africa’s tallest mountain range, and fabulous national parks, not to mention the highest concentration of primates on earth, Uganda has so much to offer its visitors.

  • Set at the equator, in the geographical heart of the African Continent, Uganda is made up of four regions: Central, Eastern, Northern and Western. Uganda is blessed with excellent wildlife watching opportunities, stunning scenery and welcoming locals.
  • English is the official language of Uganda and both Kiswahili and Luganda are widely spoken. Uganda is a multilingual country with over 40 of languages spoken.
  • Uganda enjoys a tropical climate with little temperature variation throughout the year. December to February and June to September are generally considered the best time to visit Uganda due to less rainfall at these times.
