Uganda Travel Month once again presents the opportunity to rediscover the Uganda you thought you knew. Discover new gems, new sights, discover new experience.

Our first #UgTravelMonth experience of 2017 takes us to the easy Fort Portal, land of the explosion crater. The landscape south of Fort Portal is dotted with picturesque crater lakes, all of which are ringed with improbably steep hills. It’s a great spot to settle in for a few days to explore the footpaths or cycle the seldom-used roads.

The opening is serene, easy and picturesque.
