Project Description

The Equator

Uganda is one of the few countries in the world where the equator divides the earth into two half passes. The Equator crosses into Uganda at a point situated 72km south of Kampala along the Kampala – Masaka road. At the Uganda Equator you observe this by a line drawn in the middle of the lane, with a monument on both sides that state “Uganda Equator” At the Equator see an experiment of how water drains straight down at the Equator while the water will drain clockwise on the northern hemisphere and counter clockwise on the southern hemisphere. This is something very exciting to see. Wouldn’t it be an exploration to stand with one foot in the southern hemisphere and one foot on the northern hemisphere of the world?


Bwindi is 331 square kilometers and is located in South Western Uganda, on the edge of the western rift valley, shared by Kabale, Rukungiri and Kisoro Districts. It lies on an altitude range of 2607m (Rwamunyonyi peak)-1160m (Ishasha gorge).

Annual Temperature ranges from 7-20 degrees Celsius. Usually it’s cold during June- July rains heavily in March-April and September-November. The local people in this area are mainly Bakiga and Bafumbira, representing the most
impenetrable settlements in Uganda, (233 people/ square kilometers).
