Uganda is a small yet impressive destination in the heart of East Africa. It is a land characterised by great lakes, waterfalls, dramatic mountains and thriving wildlife populations. Home to the source of the Nile River, the continent’s largest lake, Africa’s tallest mountain range, and fabulous national parks, including the highest concentration of primates on earth, Uganda has so much to offer its visitors.

  • Straddling the equator, Uganda sits on a plateau marked by mountains, valleys and lakes. With 60 protected areas, including 10 national parks, Uganda is home to excellent wildlife viewing opportunities, stunning scenery and welcoming locals.
  • English and Kiswahili are the official languages of Uganda. Uganda is a multilingual country with over 40 languages spoken, with Luganda being the most geographically spread language.
  • Uganda enjoys a tropical climate with most temperature variations determined by elevation and presence of lakes. Rain showers are commonplace, with the dry seasons being December to March and June to August.
