Recommended by DIG. From Amazon:
Since 1900, more than 108,000 officially protected conservation areas have been established worldwide, largely at the urging of five international conservation organizations.

Uganda – Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture
By Ian Clarke (Kuperard, 2014)
From Amazon: Once notorious for the tyranny of Idi Amin, immortalized in the film The Last King of Scotland, Uganda has, for the last twenty-six years or so, struggled to overcome its negative image. It has largely been successful. Rated the best country to visit in 2012, it was one named of the best tourist destinations of 2013 by National Geographic magazine.
The Last King of Scotland

Note: Rated R.
