The country of Lake Victoria and the mountain gorilla, is struggling out of poverty caused by long dictatorships (the most repressive was perpetrated by General Idi Amin Dada 1971-1979) and continuous guerrillas.
The economic and health situation is still precarious and infrastructure are very poor, but the area is beautiful, with vast plateaus that rise up to the Mountains of the Moon: the Ruwenzori (5,109 meters) and descending to the beautiful lakes Victoria, Albert , Edward and Kyoga and the equatorial climate gently mitigated by altitude. The National Parks of Murchison Falls on the Nile, Queen Elizabeth between Lake George and Lake Edward and Bwindi where, inside impenetrable forests, still live mountain gorillas, are among the most spectacular of entire African continent.
