Straddling the Equator, with shimmering lakes, lofty mountains and mysterious forests, Uganda contains four of Africa's seven Great Lakes, it's the source of the White Nile at Jinja, and it has the greatest variety of primates anywhere in Africa, including chimpanzees and mountain gorillas. The "Pearl of Africa" as it is referred to by its people, is home to some of Africa's major attractions.

This country contains four of Africa's seven great lakes, including Lake Victoria which is the second largest body of fresh water in the world. Lake Bunyonyi is one of these spectacular lakes with its mythical landscapes and hidden bays. The source of the Nile at Jinja allows you the opportunity to tame the mighty waters with some of the world's best white water rafting. And to top it all, this breath taking country has the largest population of primates anywhere in Africa.
The Mountain Gorillas are highly sociable animals, living in fairly stable groups, which are held together by long term bonds between males and females. These creatures come across as strong and powerful, yet they remain the shy and gentle giants of Africa.
Jinja and the Nile River
Jinja was established in 1907 and is Uganda's second largest city after Kampala and is located near the source of the Nile River, Lake Victoria. There are many activities that one can do in this area, such as white water rafting, jet boating and even bungee jumping.
Kampala is the largest city of Uganda as well as the capital city.
