We bring you the very best of wildlife, nature, birding, adventure and culture in this incredibly gifted country that has unique add-ons to your safari/vacation.
For a cultural visit to the east of the country (in an even year), you will come across boys becoming men in an initiation circumcision ritual. You will see and interact with the Bagisu boys as they perform the “boneless waist” kadodi dance as they transition to manhood. You will see the bull fight; enjoy street barbeque, bamboo shoots cooked in groundnut sauce.
In the north, you will encounter an energetic thumb pianist whose optimism and vibrancy, captured in his sweaty face and electric-like fingers on the piano’s metallic keys overshadows the long years of war.
In the west, you will be inducted into royalty by the Batoro pet naming ceremony, participate in cattle watering and transcend centuries of history in the Igongo cultural centre.
In Buganda (central region), visit the Kasubi Royal Tombs, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where past kings are buried, the Kabaka’s [king’s] lake – a failed attempt by Kabaka Mwanga to build a channel that connected to Lake Victoria for defence purposes and enjoy Luwombo – a Baganda special sauce served with Matooke – the central region’s staple.
When it comes to food and fruit, you have never tasted anything like it – food in its organic state the way it was intended from the Luwombo as prepared in Buganda, millet bread served in pasted beef, chicken and fish. From the west, no meal is complete without ‘Eshabwe’ – a milk-based product that is served with food. Every corner of Uganda has a different cuisine.
In terms of fruit, enjoy juice dripping pineapple, mango and water melon. Other organic fruits include bananas, passion fruit, oranges and lemons, jack fruit and more.
And for a Safari, Uganda has more than the Big Five. Uganda is home to 1067 bird species, the source of the River Nile, is the primate capital of the world in Kibale, has the best weather in the world. And then you will be awestruck by the Mountain Gorillas with more than half of the world’s population calling Uganda their home in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.
From 10 national parks and 11 Game reserves, you will experience among others boat cruises to the bottom of the magical Murchison Falls, view marine mammals teaming in the Kazinga channel, which links two large water bodies (Lakes George and Albert). And there is more!
We are aware that there is a lot at stake when choosing a safari company in terms of value for money, and therefore we take great care in ensuring to the greatest extent possible, a flawless safari experience. Carefully examine our core values and we trust you will grant us the opportunity to be your travel arrangers.
