Ecologically, Uganda is where the East African savannah meets the Central African Jungle. Positioned in the geographical heart of the African continent, Uganda is not your ordinary safari destination. It is not every day, and certainly not anyplace, that you have the luxury of holiday weather.
The country’s inhabitants could be excused for taking that for a appropriate. None expects the climate to be acting up and frustrating attempts to savour the breathtaking beauty ubiquitously offered for optical plunder. As if in respect of a extended sealed pact, the weather is satisfied to oblige. Whilst it does, it frees flora and fauna alike to captivate the senses of visitors and locals in equal measure.
Then like a tireless servant, the identical climate aids the bustle of the cosmopolitan Kampala City- Uganda’s Capital- a fairly modern day city sprawled across seven hills that represents the great that has come to the country particularly in the post civil war era that ushered in the present government and set the nation on a new path, defined by an unprecedented level of political stability and unremitting economic growth. Small wonder Kampala is a city that is difficult working by day, and celebration-hopping by evening.
And it matters small that Kampala brings collectively such a diverse collection of men and women. Uganda has lengthy been a cultural melting pot witness the 30-plus distinct indigenous languages belonging to five distinct linguistic groups. That count consists of the country’s most ancient inhabitants, the Batwa and Bambuli pygmies, remnants of the hunter-gathers who after occupied a lot of East Africa a variety of Bantu tribes in Central and Western Uganda, and a Nilotic collection to the north.
Emphasizing Uganda’s cultural diversity are the Karimojong in the north east of the country, traditional pastrolists with a life-style and culture that leaves absolutely nothing between them and the Kenyan Maasai. Closer to the Karimajong are the Bagisu of the Mount Elgon region whose Imbalu (circumcision) ceremony is often a sight to behold.
But even although cast apart by the work of geography, Ugandan individuals are unified by a warmness that instantly impacts the 1st time visitor. When you are considering perfect weather, scenic beauty, a stunning and warm people, you are thinking Uganda.
