Description [ correction ]

Uganda was once a land of terror located in the centre of black Africa where once upon a time despot dictators ran a-mock with the economics of the country while pretending to govern it.

Modern Uganda is a reconciled country with its past behind it and a bright future ahead of it. The youth of the country and the well-educated section of the population has a massive appetite for education.

The Makerere University has been held in high regard domestically and internationally with student finishing here and going abroad after completing their degrees. The backbone of the economy is the coffee industry, but in recent years has been unstable.

The local currency the Shilling has decreased against all major currencies. In 1999 the Tourism Industry took a heavy knock after the massacre of 8 tourists in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest by rebels from DR Congo.

Due to this the government has taken stock of this situation and security measures have been put into place, tourist's safety is considered a high priority in the country.

As a foreign exchange earner for the country tourism has great potential. Some of the continents major attractions can be found in Uganda with facilities to meet the needs of visitors and their budgets. Uganda a beautiful piece of Africa straddling the equator, the diversity of Uganda's people as well as the attractions is what draws visitors to Uganda.
