Strenuous Choices At Historical Bugoma Forest

Monday, 5th October 2020
Bugoma Forest in Western Uganda is a cultural site that is a beautiful expanse of woodland most of it "naturally" grown from indigenous trees and plants. Some of it however grew from trees carefully selected and grown under the watchful eye of the strong late 19th century Omukama Chwa Kabalega II, king of Bunyoro from 1870 - 1899. During his reign the anti-colonialism war king fought many wars of resistance against domestic and foreign colonisers alike; using Bugoma forest as his war training ground. The no-nonsense-king is said to have personally imported and planted some of the tree species from different parts of his extensive  empire, including Mboga in Congo where he used to retreat once in a while. 

Today Bugoma forest is an extensive area of plant and fauna and is part of the Lake Albert ecosystem. It is on many tour agents' tourists itineraries.
