Uganda is located in east Africa, at the equator. Although it is a poor
third world country, the nature is beautiful. The soil is very fertile, and
there is a rainy season twice a year. This results in a nice green country
side. That's why it is called "The pearl of Africa".
The political situation has been stable since 1986. Before that the
country suffered from terrible civil wars. The damages can still be seen in
some places. Uganda is recovering, slowly. With the help of the IMF the
economy has improved, inflation is under control. This is a good situation
for continuous improvement. President Museveni is leading his country well,
and manages to keep the many peoples in the country together.
One of the main financial problems is the enormous debt.
The infrastructure has improved in the past few years, thanks to foreign
help. Travelling through the country is easy, using minibusses. There is a
lot to do for tourists. See the wildlife in one of the nature reserves.
Climb the Rwenzori mountains, that separate east from west Africa. Or just
relax in one of the friendly hotels.
