So you are going to be an exchange student at

Kyambogo University?

Uganda is a beautiful country located in the eastern part of Africa. It has access to water through lakes and rivers so the country is green and has a lot of wildlife. Uganda is actually located on equator, so remember to bring your sunglasses. It borders to South-Sudan, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya.

The official language is English and in Kampala most people also speak Luganda. There are about forty different languages spoken in the different regions in the country. As long as you speak English you will be fine, but if you learn some Luganda you will soon see people opening up even more and prices might fall a bit.

Kampala is the capital and the largest city in Uganda. Kampala is named the 13th fastest growing city on the planet and have been ranked the best city to live in East Africa. Kampala is just as diverse as Uganda, and the city has a lot to offer.
