Uganda

Uganda shares borders with Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania, Congo and Rwanda. Thanks to its altitude, it can be cooler than many other African countries. Uganda has had a troubled political and military history since gaining independence in 1962, though this has improved slightly in recent years.

Uganda's main exports include coffee, tea and fish. It has substantial natural resources, including fertile soils, regular rainfall, and mineral deposits of copper and cobalt. The country has largely untapped reserves of crude oil and natural gas. Ugandan cuisine consists of traditional cooking with English, Arab, Asian and especially Indian influences. The capital, Kampala, sits on the northern shore of lake Victoria and is served by Entebbe international airport.
