Uganda is known as the pearl of Africa, and for good reason, it has so much to offer. You can quite easily see Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Golden Monkeys, Lions, Elephants and even a Shoebill in a very short space of time. The parks are beautiful, diverse and well worth visiting.
A relatively small country, Uganda is 241 136 sq. km. in extent, of which 44 000 sq. km. is fresh water. Situated astride the Equator, it enjoys a mean annual temperature of 22 deg C. The basic infrastructure is sound and rapidly becoming better. The ecology varies from savanna to forest to snowcapped mountains, a great diversity which shows in its recorded bird list of over 1000 species.
Straddling the equator, Uganda experiences very little year round fluctuation in temperature and no real winter or summer. The hottest months are January and February when the average daytime range is 24-33°C (52-91°F) with peaks of up to 40°C/104°F in the far north.
