About The Equator

The equator passes through the Pearl of Africa and if you are going to Mbarara from Kampala you’ll see monuments at Kayabwe TC on either side of the road marking the exact spot where it crosses latitude 00 as well as at Kikolongo TC in QENP. Whether you are driving from Kampala-Mbarara-Katungulu-Kasese or from Kampala-Fort Portal –Kasese-Mbarara these are visible features that can’t escape you eye as a tourist. This partly explains its tropical climate. This is a natural endowment indeed!. As you stop have a glance at the Equator way on Kampala-Masaka-Mbarara-Kabale highway, you can have a visit at some of the curio shops that sell beautiful hand-made African jewellery and other art facts. This will make your long journeys in the South West enjoyable and interesting.
