Uganda is situated at the intersection of the sprawling savannahs of East Africa, the primordial rainforests of West Africa, and the semi-arid Sahelian zone of North Africa. In the middle of this eclectic mix of vegetation zones are some of the world’s easily identifiable geographical landmarks – the world’s longest river, River Nile; the world’s second largest lake, Lake Victoria; Africa’s highest mountain range, the Rwenzori Mountains, Africa’s highest solitary volcano, Mt. Elgon; Africa’s oldest rainforest, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; the western arm of the African rift valley, the Albertine Rift Valley, and the Equator. With such an varied mix of habitats, it is no surprise that Uganda offers all the ‘Big 5’ – Rhino, Elephant, Leopard, Cape Buffalo and Lions – in addition to the 2 great apes; Chimpanzee and Mountain Gorilla.
