Uganda lies in the Nile Basin and the East African plateau between latitudes 4°N and 2°S , and longitudes 29° and 35°E; with terrain averaging about 1,100 metres (3,609 ft) above sea level, and descending very steadily downwards to the Sudanese Plain to the north. Much of the south is characterized by poor drainage with the central region dominated by Lake Kyoga surrounded by extensive marshy areas. The Victoria Nile enters Lake Kyoga and thence into Lake Albert on the Congolese border. It then flows northwards into South Sudan. Read More
People & Culture
Lake Kyoga and the Victoria Nile form a rough boundary between Nilotic and Sudanic language speakers in the north and the Bantu speakers in the south. However, many Ugandans have undergone an assimilation process in many parts of the country thus enabling most people to ably speak more than one language. The most commonly spoken language is luganda. The Baganda who happened to be the most civilized and economically empowered tribe occupy the Central part of Uganda. Thus the name “Uganda” was derived from Buganda – the area inhabited by the Baganda people. Read More
Weather & Climate
Uganda’s climate varies in different areas owing to the diverse altitude. The Southern part of the country receives more rainfall than the rest of the country. This is responsible for the different economic activities in the country. The country has diverse vegetation cover including savannah woodland in central Uganda, tropical rainforest in southwest; and plain grassland and thickets in Northern Uganda.
