Did You Know?

The world’s longest river, River Nile; Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria; and Africa’s second deepest lake, Lake Bunyonyi, are all found in Uganda.

Almost one-fifth of Uganda’s total area is open water or swampland comprising a great number of lakes and rivers notably 4 of the African Great Lakes; Albert, Edward, Kyoga and Victoria and the River Nile, the longest river in the world. In the mountainous west and southwest, several crater lakes that have been formed over thousands of years are a beauty to behold.

On offer are a host of water-based treats including the famed Murchison Falls and Kazinga Channel boat cruises and adventure activities like white-water rafting and bungee jumping at the Nile. Uganda’s lakes and rivers present limitless opportunities to explore the varied biodiversity in and around their basins for birding and game viewing alike.
