Uganda is a land of vast natural beauty. It has gorgeous mountain ranges, lush forests, stunning plains, and the source of the greatNileRiver. The land is so fertile that legends say that if a traveler ends the day by propping his walking stick in the soil, he will wake up to find that it has sprouted leaves. Uganda was once considered to be the Pearl of Africa. However, it is now better known for something as great in magnitude as its natural beauty: the destruction of the country by its own political leaders.
