Uganda is an extremely beautiful country, full of excitement in the cities and charm in the countryside. It is here where the farming of coffee takes place but the country also has a vast number of lakes that add stunning scenery to its list of attractions.
The country is located on the East African border and is home to ten national parks and 60 protected areas. The population has grown considerably too – rising from 9.5 million people in 1969 to 34.9 million in 2014 (an increase of 10.6 million in 12 years).
Uganda is also home to a number of different ethnic groups which adds to why so many tourists visit the country each year. The variety of ethnic groups present includes those of Baganda, Banyakole, Langi and Banyoro. There are also 20,000 white residents present in Uganda; largely from the United Kingdom.
Around 40 different languages are spoken regularly in Uganda, falling into two main categories: Niger-Congo and Nilo-Saharan.
English actually became the official language of Uganda after their independence and was introduced to schools and universities as part of the curriculum as a result.
Music is thought to be the most prominent and important communication tool to the residents of Uganda but there is also a great love of sport in the country.
