Situated at the geographical heart of the African continent, Uganda has long been a cultural melting pot, as evidenced by the 30-plus different indigenous languages and an equally diverse cultural mosaic of music, art and handicrafts. Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Situated astride the Equator, Uganda boasts a fabulous climate and an extraordinary natural beauty; it is rich in flora and fauna, many of which are unique.
Uganda’s geographic strong points include the River Nile, with the official source located at Jinja, Rwenzori Mountains, home to the 3rd, 4th and 5th highest peaks in Africa (the largest collection of peaks) and the most technically difficult climbs in Africa. The Rwenzori Mountains, known historically as the “Mountains of the Moon,” are cited by some as the location of King Solomon’s famous gold mines. The Albertine Rift Valley, which runs along the western border of the country and contains species found nowhere else in the world, has been internationally designated as a “biodiversity hotspot.”
