Visiting the magnificent Ugandan Equator
The Equator is an imaginary line that goes around the planet in the middle and other outer space bodies. It subdivides the planet into two, the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. That is how the North-pole and the South-pole come about with the 0 degrees latitude
You will start off your journey/ safari travelling through the districts of Mpigi as your final destination will be at Kayabwe on of the places the equator crosses Uganda. The drive to Kayabwe should not take more than 2 hours as the distance from Kampala City to Kayabwe is not that far.
When you arrive there, you will be welcomed warmly by one of the tour guides who will at any time of the day elaborate how and why the equator is truly crossing through there.
Any and all tours can be combined or modified to fit your particular needs. Please tell us your specific requirements.
