More about Uganda
- COUNTRYVV: Overview of labor market in Uganda, including latest unemployment rate and youth unemployment. Also covers job distribution by economic sectors, such as public sector, finance and hotels and restaurants.
Uganda borders South Sudan to the north, Kenya to the east, Tanzania and Rwanda to the south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. The largest part of Uganda consists of a plateau located 1,000 to 1,500 m above sea level, which is crossed by numerous rivers and on which individual island mountains are placed. Lake Victoria in the south (parts also in Kenya and Tanzania) is the largest inland lake in Africa with 69,484 km 2; There are numerous islands near the Ugandan shore. Some wetlands adjoin the lake.
The Victorianil, which flows from Lake Victoria near Jinja through Lake Kyoga to the northern tip of Lake Albert and further north into South Sudan, divides Uganda into two halves. The Kyoga lake in the middle of the country and the other lakes in its surroundings (a drowned valley system) testify to the old, westward drainage of this area. In the entire west of the country, the plateau is bounded by the multifaceted Central African Threshold and the collapsed Central African Rift. The southwest is very hilly and higher up than the rest of the country. Lie in the extreme southwest of the country on the grave edge Virunga volcanoes (4127 m above sea level in Muhavura).
Between Albert and Rutanzigesee the crystalline clod of Ruwenzori rises on the bottom of the trench (in Margherita Peak 5,109 m above sea level) with the Ruwenzori National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The Central African Rift is set off from the plateau by distinct fracture steps, which are overcome in the northwest by the Nile in the Murchison Falls. To the east is the higher-lying East African Threshold, which is crowned by volcanic mountains ( Mount Elgon 4,321 m above sea level).
Vegetation and wildlife
The natural vegetation is dominated by broad-leaved woodlands (transition from the wet to the dry savannah ) with sparse trees. In the mountains there are species-rich rain, mountain and cloud forests with bamboo thickets and tree ferns in the undergrowth. Subnival grass corridors merge into the snow-capped peaks from 4200 m above sea level.
The open savannah landscapes of the high plateau are the habitat of rhinos, antelopes, buffalo, elephants and lions. There are still some mountain gorillas in the cloud forests. The endangered animal species are protected in several national parks and game reserves. Check cellphoneexplorer to see Uganda On the Trail of the Mountain Gorillas.
Mountain gorillas in Uganda
Mountain gorillas only live in the damp mountain forests of the Virunga Volcanoes in the triangle of Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda. The population is estimated (2019) at around 604 animals roaming their territory in family groups of up to 40 members, 459 of which live in Uganda. The endangered great apes gained worldwide attention thanks to the commitment of primate researcher Dian Fossey. She described her experiences in the bestseller “Gorillas im Nebel”, which was filmed in 1988. Since then, more and more tourists have come to the area to watch the animals.
The three countries have now set up national parks (Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi National Park in Uganda; National Park of the Volcanoes in Rwanda; Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) and thus try to protect the primate habitat additionally. Since the area around the Virunga Volcanoes is also a retreat for the various Congolese civil war parties, protection is extremely difficult.
The areas around the national parks are comparatively densely populated; the people who live here use the raw materials and water sources in the parks. Patient education and guidance from internationally active nature conservation organizations such as the WWF or the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International (DFGFI), which was founded especially for the protection of mountain gorillas, have resulted in the population becoming increasingly interested in the protection of animals. The people are now earning from tourism and work, among other things, as gamekeepers in the national parks.
Tourists can observe the mountain gorillas in nature on guided tours. The rules for this are very strict, a maximum of six to eight people are allowed to search for the animals per day and approach them within five meters. In order to avoid the transmission of disease to the gorillas, the sick (even if it is just a cold) must stay outside the parks.
