Eastern Uganda

Eastern Uganda is widely known as the adventurous region of Uganda and entire East Africa. The thought of water rafting, zip-lining, horse riding, quad biking or bungee jumping think of the eastern part of the Pearl of Africa. The Basoga whose society is also rooted in kingly rule occupies much of the region and further east the Bagisu and Northeast the Itesots predominantly. Other smaller ethnic groups are interspaced in the region with the Basoga and Bagisu mostly farmers with others having a strong affinity to cattle rearing.

The region takes up the wide plain that gently slopes down from the Elgon mountain in the far east down to the surroundings of Kampala. This was the main trade route from the East African coast since the colonial era and consequently the industrious region at that time. The demand for animal curios especially ivory, decimated much of the wildlife in the region while herds retreated to safer areas like the slopes of Mount Elgon, with smaller animals seeking the protection of the forests including monkeys and baboons. Along the highway to Kenya, it is common to see baboons scavenging food.

As the central region, the east is not as bountiful in terms of wildlife, however attractions like the source of the Nile, Sipi falls, Nyero Rock paintings and the Elgon area of course. It is also from this region of the country where legendary sportsmen and sportswomen including Stephen Kiprotich who is a gold medalist in both Summer Olympics (2012 London) and world championships (2013 Russia) men’s marathon.
