Lake Katwe Salt Works

Lake Katwe Salt Works

Whilst in the Queen Elizabeth area, travellers can visit one of the oldest industries in Uganda at the enclave of Lake Katwe town. Since the 14th century salt has been mined by traditional methods and is still in use today. Salt production peaks during the dry season. The new Hippo Hill Tented Camp is located on the north-western edge of Queen Elizabeth National Park, not far from the crater lakes around Lake Katwe.
