This land, situated on the end of the Entebbe peninsula, is a poor, light, sandy-loam, low in phosphates and potach and with a pH RANGE OF 405 TO 408. The grazing consists mainly of Loudetia Kagarensis which though palatable has a very low stock carrying capacity, Hyperrhenia amd Eragrostes spp. are found but these are confined to the edges of main tracks and old termitaria.
