Uganda, twice the size of Pennsylvania, is in East Africa. It is bordered on the west by Congo, on the north by the Sudan, on the east by Kenya, and on the south by Tanzania and Rwanda. Although generally equatorial, the climate is not uniform as the altitude modifies the climate. Southern Uganda is wetter with rain generally spread throughout the year.
In the centre of the country at Kampala and Entebbe (on the northern shore of Lake Victoria), most rain falls from March to June and the November/December period. Further to the north at Gulu and Murchison Falls, a dry season gradually emerges; November to February is much drier than the rest of the year. The northeastern Karamoja region has the driest climate and is dominated by the Karimojong nomadic. Rwenzori in the southwest on the border with Congo (DRC) receives heavy rain all year round.
The south of the country is heavily influenced by one of the many forests there, and one of the world’s biggest lake, Lake Victoria, which contains many islands and birds.
