Visitors to the Uganda Pavilion will first be welcomed by the remakes of endangered mountain gorillas, inhabited around the snow-capped Ruwenzori Mountains. Although these giant animals look huge and even a bit terrifying, they are actually vegetarians with a mild temper.
So far there are less than 7-hundred mountain gorillas existing in the world today, half of which are in Uganda.
Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa straddling the equator. It covers an area of around 240 thousand square kilometers, with a total population of over 33 million people.
