The people of Uganda are amongst the most hospitable in Africa. The nation is a result of the unification of ancient kingdoms, as well as many independent chieftains. Their heritage lives on in the hearts of the people, and their traditional costumes, language and practices are unmistakable in the life of Uganda today.
Uganda's equatorial climate is tempered by cooling breezes from the mountains, and the lush vegetation is the result of bountiful rainfall in two rainy seasons, which fall around April and November.
Although nearly 30 different languages are spoken, English is the official language and is spoken by almost every one you meet. Swahili is also widely spoken.
