THE 2017 TRIPS
Sept 30: Fort Portal’s Crater Explosion (2 Days, 1 Night)
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.
Oct 7: Bunyonyi, Uganda’s Swiss Alps (3 Days, 2 Nights)
The 3 Day Weekend courtesy of Independence Day (Oct 9) landing on a Monday, allows us to take the scenic ride to Kabale to discover why Lake Bunyonyi is aptly named the Swiss Alps of Uganda.
Oct 14: Queen Elizabeth Wild (2 Days, 1 Night)
Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination making it the perfect inclusive as the 3rd trip. An abundance of wildlife a series of exciting stop overs await.
Oct 21: Finale @ Murchison Falls (2 Days, 1 Night)
First gazetted as a game reserve in 1926, Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area. The thunder at the top of the falls is a fitting end to a month of explosive travel.
