Uganda is the Pearl of Africa. Centrally located in East Africa, within both the African Great Lakes region and the Nile basin, Uganda’s landscapes leave one breathless and its diverse wildlife makes it Africa’s major tourist destination.

It is home to the mountain gorilla and Africa’s big five: elephants, lions, cheetahs, hippos, and leopards. The country also boasts natural tropical forests such as Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home of the gorillas, and Budongo Forest, home of the chimpanzees. The country is sanctified with fresh waters of the River Nile. The river has its source in Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake by area.

The World Health Summit Regional Meeting 2020 will be hosted in Uganda’s capital: Kampala. The city occupies a series of hills at an elevation of about 3,900 feet (1,190 meters) and is situated in the central part of the country, on the northern border of Lake Victoria.
