letter from editor Shaz Dunbar

Dear Readers, Advertisers & Contributors,

Hello again

ISU international school of Uganda -

… and a warm welcome to this edition of THE EYE E-Magazine. If you are a first time tourist or have only recently moved to Uganda and would like to start off by visiting some of the wonderful places there are to visit, a great first road trip would be to the western part of Uganda.

There are a multitude of things to do and to see in the west, like visiting the Katonga Wildlife Reserve (well on its way to being upgraded to a national park), the Kitagata Hot Springs in Sheema District, and the Kisiizi Falls which are located in Kisiizi Parish in Nyarushanje Sub County in Rukungiri District. Then drive on to beautiful Fort Portal, which is the seat of both the Kabarole district administration and the ancient Toro Kingdom. The King of Toro’s palace at the top of the highest hill in Fort Portal is well worth a look.

The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located across the Kabale/Kanungu Districts and is a UNESCO heritage site, famously known for its mountain gorillas and extensive birding. The Rwenzori Mountains National Park protects the higher parts of the 120km long and 65km wide Rwenzori mountain range and offers reasonably fit visitors hiking and mountaineering opportunities. For wildlife and birding, visit Lake Mburo National Park, Semuliki Wildlife Reserve and Queen Elizabeth National Park. Kibale National Park is home to the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa.

To find further information about these destinations and much, much more, visit the Tourism Uganda website at http://www.visituganda.com

COVER PHOTO: Murchison Bay “This luminous, ethereal image is in fact highly toxic algae running wild along the shores of Lake Victoria. This is a result of pollutants such as raw sewage and unchecked industrial waste being emptied into the water. This is a stark reminder of the impact we, as humans, have on our environment. It’s time we take actionable responsibility.”
