Uganda
Uganda is a landlocked country in Africa and bordered by Tanzania, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Kenya. Main Cities called Kampala.

Although Uganda is just one degree north of the equator - in line with Singapore - the climate is comparatively cool. This is due to the country's high elevation above sea level. At the same time affecting the country's lakes, the climate, but at a more local level. The climate is tropical in other words, and divides the country into two: the north is the rainy season between April and October, while in the south are the two rainy seasons. One falls from April to May, while the other falls from October to November. These conditions also means that there is great differentiation in the flora and fauna on Tvaer of the vast country.

To the southeast bordering country to Lake Victoria, and to the east to Kenya, where Mount Elgon, located on the border of the two countries, is an ideal place for hiking. Wildlife in Uganda is not as rich as what we know from the famous national parks in Tanzania, Botswana and Kenya. In return, the number of tourists also lower, and it feels like as if one has the savannah for themselves

Are you interested in extreme sports, should journey to Uganda also include rafting on the Nile. From its source in Jinja and the subsequent approx. 50 kg meters, one encounters swift currents of challenges in the world, but both less experienced and well trained extreme adventurers will be able to participate. Uganda, the fertile land that Churchill called the pearl of Africa, is in every way worth traveling in.
