Nile Crocodile
The Nile crocodiles you can see in Uganda are among the largest in the world and can live up to 100 years old. During the Victorian era, finding the source of the Nile became one of the great geographical mysteries that many felt inspired to solve. These intrepid explorers included Stanley, Livingstone and Speke. It was Speke who finally discovered the source of the Nile (1862) and tracked it down to a waterfall on Lake Victoria in Uganda.
