Uganda Pavilion

Uganda Pavilion

THEME: The Philosophy and Development of Urbanization in Uganda

PAVILION: The Pavilion makes a nice juxtaposition with three distinct exhibit areas, one portraying a rural village, one the natural wonder of Lake Victoria and the third an urban setting in Kampala.

EXHIBIT: The first exhibit shows life in the Ruwenzori Mountains and includes displays on the world-famous endangered mountain gorillas. Visitors will get a glimpse at the magnificent scenery of Uganda here. The second exhibit re-creates a portion of the shoreline of Lake Victoria, complete with red-crowned cranes standing amongst the reeds. Finally in the Kampala Street representation, mosques, churches and colorful murals display the co-existence of various faiths and ethnic groups in Uganda. Window displays illustrate a variety of urban projects either currently underway or in the planning process, including public transportation, waste and water management and environmental protection.

CUISINE: A café will serve traditional Ugandan beverages.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.

Note: This Pavilion was located in the Africa Joint Pavilion.
