Uganda is one of the highest countries in Africa.

An excerpt from the article 32 facts about Uganda

The vast majority of the country lies in the northwestern part of the Precambrian East African Plateau. Basically, the entire country is highland, with an average altitude of 1500 m above sea level. The upland area gradually decreases south towards the Lake Victoria basin.

In the western part of Uganda, the East African Plateau abruptly breaks off and turns into the tectonic Central African Rift.
