The Uganda Culture is comprised of a range of ethnic groups with Lake Kyoga posing a southern limit of the northern Nilotic tribes including the Langi and the Acholi and at the same time posing a northern settlement limit of the southern Bantu tribes like the Baganda among others.
The Bantu groups dominate the greater part of East, Central and the west of Uganda. The Bagisu and the Basoga occupy the eastern regions including the slopes of Mount Elgon and northern banks of River Nile respectively, the Baganda occupy the central area, northern shores and the Islands of Lake Victoria, the BanyoroBatooro to the mid-west and the BanyankoleBakiga to the south west of the country. The Nilotic groups occupy the northern part of Uganda including the Karamojong to the north east, Acholi and Langi to the north and the Alur in the North West.
These range of tribal groups feature diverse practices, customs, languages, norms and values among other aspects that keep them unique to one another.
The traditional religion which was dominant in the past has been slowly fading away following the spread of Modern religion and education. But some centers of traditional worship still stand and the followers as well. The Bachwezi who are believed to have occupied the interlucustrine region are regarded by many of these tribes as their ancestors and in turn they worship them.
The Ugandan cuisine also differs among the ethnic groups others overlap. These tribal groups feature unique ways of preparing certain food types. For example; the Baganda are fond of Luwombo, the Atapa among the Itesot, Eshabwe among the Banyankole, Firinda among the Batooro and the Marakwang among the northern tribes. With the intrusion of various foreign cultures, the continental food stuffs are now available in Uganda including specialty foods like the Asian Cuisine, the Chinese food among others. The dominant local food types in Uganda include; Matooke, Posho, Cassava, Sweet Potatoes, Irish Potatoes and Millet.
There are various festivities celebrated among these tribes including the Imbalu circumcision ceremony among the Bagisu carried out in every even year and Empango ceremony in Bunyoro and Tooro. These events have been added unto the National tourism calendar thus listed as Uganda tour products.
