Dam threatens tourism at Uganda's Kalagala Falls

The rapids at the Kalagala Falls in Uganda are considered some of the best in the world, attracting both tourists and professional kayakers.

However, this holiday hotspot now finds itself at the centre of a debate about how the country should use the Nile River to fuel its economy.

The government is building a dam to increase a much-needed energy supply. But in turn the dam will submerge the rapids, damaging the tourism industry.
