Uganda is situated in Africa and a landlocked country but is gifted with moderate climate suitable for human settlement. This is because, she receives both sunny and rainy seasons throughout the year which favours proper growth of crops and this justifies why Uganda is evergreen.
More so, Uganda is strategically located in East African, boarded by Kenya in the east, Democratic Republic of Congo in the west, Sudan in the north and Tanzania in the south. This justifies why Uganda is politically a stable country.
The country is also endowed with the sources of wonderful water bodies like River Nile which is the longest in Africa, Shares part of Lake Victoria which is the largest in east Africa. Others include, Lake Albert which demarcates Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo in the west, Lake Kyoga which drains Uganda’s central region and has enables irrigation farming in the country hence high food production. The above exhibits why Uganda is an agricultural country!

Such parks protect a large number of wildlife and unique vegetation types.
