Watch out for the details
Uganda lies astride the Equator, right in the heart of Africa. It is bordered by Kenya in the East, Tanzania in the South, Rwanda in the South West, Congo in the west and Sudan in the North.
Main languages spoken are English (official), Luganda, Bantu and Nilotic languages, as well as Swahili.
Uganda is a unique safari destination basically because of its large, forested area with Lowland rain forest.
The Afro-montane forest, found especially on Mount Elgon, as well as its accessibility, gives a spectacular view of the forest creatures like chimpanzees, gorillas, monkeys, butterflies and birds.
Going through the country’s game reserves, one is likely to encounter safari favorites like lions, buffalo, elephant, leopard, giraffe and other several species of animals not found anywhere else in Africa.
Uganda is naturally endowed with lakes – Lake Victoria, Kyoga, Albert, Edward and several crater-lakes, especially around the Rwenzori foothills.
The existence of such water bodies facilitates a relatively moist climate, with the countryside greener and more fertile compared to the semi-desert northern side.
Around these water bodies are different bird species not easily found anywhere in Africa, especially the papyrus gonolek and the shoebill.
The people of Ugandan in general, are very kind and friendly and are very approachable.
Kampala, the Capital City of Uganda, much like Rome was originally built, is spread over seven hills and takes its fabled name from Kasozi K’impala, interpreted as “the hills of the antelopes”.
The origin of Kampala goes backto 1891 when the Kabaka of Buganda held his court on Rubaga and Mengo Hills.
Today as you stand on the hills within Kampala you are blessed with magnificent evergreen views intermingled with red tiled villas, green iron roofed bungalows and tall modern buildings surrounded by a lush green countryside and the nearby Lake Victoria.
While Kampala is often referred to as the greenest city in Africa, it is also the heart of Uganda, serving as the center of commercial life and the seat of government.
It is a vibrant modern metropolis adorned with many beautiful gardens and parks which provides a colorful oasis in the midst of the urban landscape for both the citizens and visitors to admire.
Hotel facilities range from the best in international standards with state-of-the-art conference facilities, to accommodations for the more budget-minded traveler. Kampala, with a population of approximately 1 million, is by far the largest city in Uganda. It is not yet completely overwhelmed with traffic and sprawl like Nairobi and Lagos. Additionally, Kampala is very safe to walk around, even at night. Kampala City, barely 39km from Entebbe International Airport, offers a wide range of up market and medium accommodation. Although an effort is being made to book many of the international delegates at Protea Hotel Kampala, where the conference is scheduled to take place, numerous other hotels exist, right in close proximity to the conference venue.
A comprehensive list of these hotels, their rates and contact information will be made available on the conference web page at the earliest. Kasubi Hill is the home of the Kasubi Tombs, a sacred burial ground of Buganda Kings. The Uganda Museum sits atop Kololo Hill in close proximity with the conference venue, and features a hands-on collection of traditional musical instruments.
