Set at the equator, Uganda is made up of four regions (Central, Eastern, Northern and Western) on an area of 236,580 square kilometres, with its capital at Kampala. Uganda shares Lake Victoria, the second largest fresh water lake in the world forming the source of the Nile, the longest river in the world.
Uganda has long been a cultural melting pot, as evidenced by the existence of more than 30 different indigenous languages belonging to five distinct linguistic groups, and an equally diverse cultural mosaic of music, art and handicrafts.
Uganda experiences a temperate climate even though the majority of the country is within the Tropics with temperatures between 16 – 26’C for the majority of the year(April – November). However, during the warmer months (December – March) temperatures reach in excess of 30’C.
Uganda’s main attraction is the endangered Gorillas found in Bwindi National Park. However, Uganda has other beautiful parks and national reserves. Queen Elizabeth National Park, Mgahinga National Park, Kidepo National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Kibale National Park are just a few of them.Let Sandrage Safaris take you to Uganda!
