Let’s escape the heat! Water thrills and Nature excursions!
1) Water Rafting
Thinking adventure this summer? Come rafting! You have no idea how much fun you will experience when you come for one of the wildest marine activities right here in the Pearl of Africa. For adventurers, without at least a one-day white water rafting trip, no safari to Uganda would be complete. Right at the source of the Nile (the longest river in the world) you’ll truly experience and conquer these wild waters whilst bouncing on and off the untamed river.
2) Kayak the Nile
A trip to Uganda this summer, will not be complete without visiting the River Nile, and we believe that the best way to explore the world’s longest river is on the water itself. There is something for everyone (at Kayak The Nile) from adrenaline seekers to birdwatchers.
Grade 5 Tandem Kayaking is the ultimate activity for thrill-seekers and allows you (with little or no experience of kayaking before) to take on some of the biggest and best rapids in a single day.
3) Boat Cruises
This summer you must see the Source of the Nile on a boat cruise, it is one of the amazing experiences waiting for you here in the Pearl of Africa.
Uganda offers some of the unique and amazing water trails for breath-taking boat rides including the Source of the Nile, Kazinga channel in Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls in Murchison Falls National Park, Lake Victoria, and Ssese Islands.
Along these trails, you’ll be able to see scenic wonders of forests, rocky islands; reptiles, wildlife, and a myriad of birdlife.
4) Chip Tracking
The best time to track chimpanzees is usually during the dry seasons (mid-December to February and June to August). Chimpanzee tracking is a very fascinating experience. Prepare today and set out to Uganda’s natural jungles as you spend a number of hours tracking these impressive creatures. You will be allowed to spend some time as you observe them swing from one tree to another, feed, play about or progress speedily on the ground right in front of you.
5) Mgahinga National Park
The best time, the best months of the year to visit would be December to late February and from June to September.
Mountain gorillas form the main attraction at Mgahinga National Park, which protects the Ugandan portion of the Virungas, an imposing string of nine freestanding extinct and active volcanoes that runs along the border with Rwanda and the Congo.
Known as the “Pearl of Africa,” Uganda is located in East Africa and offers some of the continent’s most diverse wildlife viewing, dramatic landscapes, and immersive cultural experiences, and warm people and hospitality. Uganda is home to more than half the world’s population of endangered mountain gorillas, and trekking to observe these gentle giants in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is one of the world’s top bucket list travel activities. Safari opportunities abound in savanna, forest, and wetland settings throughout 10 national parks, where visitors can come face to face with “The Big Five” – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo – as well as giraffe, zebra, chimpanzee, hippopotamus, crocodile, and more than half of all bird species found in Africa. Among Uganda’s extraordinary natural attractions are the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains; expansive Lake Victoria, which forms the source of the Nile River; and Murchison Falls National Park.
