Nevertheless, Victoria Lake, Albert, Kyoga, Edward and others., Kabarega Waterfall and White Nile River System are unique natural complexes, and Rouvenzori and Achol Parks are considered one of the best in Africa.

Campala – a modern, noisy capital city, who was somehow after many years of dictatorship and civil wars quickly restore its reputation as a prosperous city, the capital of one of the most rapid developing countries in Africa. Campoon even has a casino, nightclubs and bizarre restaurants, which will not often meet in Equatorial Africa. And all this is absolutely safe!
