Yoga! (Hello in Ateso)
Welcome to Teso
Teso is a welcoming community dominated by rich culture, hospitality, and exciting local adventures.
Located in North Eastern Uganda, a 5-6-hour smooth drive from Kampala, is one of the eight districts that is home of the Iteso, Soroti.
Soroti is bordered by Amuria District to the north, Katakwi District to the east, Ngora District to the southeast, Serere District to the south, and Kaberamaido District to the west. Those are five of the eight districts inhabited by the Iteso.
The main languages spoken in Soroti are Ateso, English, Kumam, and Swahili. There is also a lot of smiling and hugging… a language well known worldwide.
