LAKES & RIVERS
Uganda sits within the Great Rift Valley and has a scenically diverse topography. Most of the country is well watered with almost 25% of Uganda’s surface area covered by water.
Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest, is home to the Ssese Islands whilst Jinja on the shores of the lake is reputed to be the source of the Nile, the world’s longest river.
Lakes Albert, Edward, George and Mburo are significant to the national parks and reserves in the vicinity while the Ndali-Kasenda Crater Lakes dominate the landscape around Fort Portal. Lake Bunyoni, found in the south west of the country is another example of Uganda’s scenic beauty. The steep slopes of the surrounding highlands and small islands make this area an ideal place for rest and relaxation.
