equator-ugandaUganda is one of those gifted countries that lie with in the tropics and crossed by the world’s main latitude – the Equator which is always encountered on Uganda safari. The two points have been marked in Uganda demonstrating the Equator line crossing. One of these and the famous one is the Uganda Equator crossing at Kayabwe 77km from Kampala along Masaka road while another one is within the Uganda safari tour destination of Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Travellers on Uganda gorilla trekking safaris to Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks in the south west of Uganda and others on wildlife safaris in Uganda to Lake Mburo and Queen Elizabeth National Parks are known for making stops en route at Kayabwe to view the Uganda Equator crossing since its the only great natural feature that lies along this route.
The site offers impressive encounters especially the famous water experiments that bring out the evidence of the north south geographical divide as shown by the poles marked at the site. The unique and amazing photo shoots have gradually made the Uganda Equator crossing a darling for every traveller on Uganda safaris and tours.
The communities around the site have not lagged behind in taping the potential of this natural feature. A range of craft shops have been established and modern coffee and tea houses are present to offer an all-round service to a traveller on safari tour to Uganda. One can get him or herself a t-shirt with words like I crossed the equator as a souvenir to commemorate the Uganda safari visit.
