An Equator is an imaginary line that goes around the planet in the middle and other outer space bodies. It subdivides the planet into two, the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. That is how the North Pole and the South Pole come about with the 0 degrees’ latitude. Early morning around 7am East African time Ultimate wild safaris guide, will transfer you from Kampala for drive to Uganda equator along the Mpigi Masaka highway, a route that will take you to destination. Your safari tour will set off through Mpigi district to your final destination at Kayabwe the place where equator crosses Uganda. The drive to Kayabwe is around 2 hours from Kampala City, on your arrival, you will be welcomed warmly by our guide who will elaborate how and why the equator is truly crossing through there.
Our guide will help you observe where the 0 degrees’ latitude crosses, point out the southern hemisphere and also the northern hemisphere. With the help of the magnetic field tools such as water, he will show you that in the Northern pole, the water will sink out through the hole in the clockwise angle. However, in the southern pole, the water will sink down the hole in a counter-clockwise as caused by the magnetic fields. The experience is finished off with the water sinking at the 0 degrees’ latitude straight down, proving that that is the imaginary line that crosses the whole world. This is as simple as it sounds but the experience is in a way mind blowing as you see with proving how the water is sucked down in all different directions.
Key questions and answers.
Because of the equator, your guide will tell you that on 21st March and on the 23rd September at midday at the imaginary line it would be hard to see your shadow because you will be light. So should you have a day at the equator on either of the two dates, be sure to be blown away.
