Sketch Map of NOTDEC Uganda's Location
NOTDEC Uganda is in western Uganda. It lies on rolling plains bounded to the south by Lake Edward and Lake George, and to the north by the foothills of the mountains.
Distant Misty View of the Rwenzori Mountains
But they’re not just any mountains. Ancient Greek geographer Ptolemy said they were the legendary source of the River Nile, discovered by the merchant Diogenes – peaks whose snow-capped serenity led locals to call them “The Mountains of the Moon”.
They’re still famous today – if only amongst trekkers – as the iconic Rwenzori Mountains, noted for their high rainfall!
Game on the Plains
The plains too get their name in lights – as the Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Here be … not dragons, but warthog, buffalo, hippos cooling off in the water, elephants, lions, and birds too varied to mention.
A superb place for watching the wildlife is on the channel between the two lakes.
Looking After the Young
Most people who live near NOTDEC Uganda have never tried trekking or visited the game park. But we took a coachload of kids to see wildlife in the Queen Elizabeth National Park.
It was magic!
