  • UGANDA ABOUT UGANDA

    IMPORTANT FACTS

    Location: East Africa Capital: Kampala Area code: 256 Languages: English, Luganda Currency: shillings (Shs) Rate of exchange: $1=Shs 3670

  • Uganda has a population of about 38 million people. Uganda has got a bit of

    everything that Africa has to offer. Uganda is also home to the tallest mountain

    range in Africa; the glacier- capped Rwenzori mountain not to mention the

    mighty Nile River, the worlds longest river. Not forgetting Lake Victoria, the

    continents largest lake. Uganda has a highest concentration of primates and

    birds in the world. These all roam the numerous dense forests like mabira.

    Animal lovers and bird watchers will surely love this. Despite the high

    population theres no crowding in even the most popular national parks and the

    capital Kampala. The country is safe and friendlier than most in Africa.

    Livingstone called it -Pearl of Africa-. Many have come to agree with him.

    Religion

    Uganda is predominantly Christian. About 87% of the people are either catholic, protestant or Baptist. The

    rest of the population is made up of other denominations like Islam. There are no religious squabbles and

    everyone lives together harmoniously. This is one of the reasons that Uganda is a great place to live in.
