Cultural tours in Uganda
Uganda also features four major traditional and well established kingdoms: Buganda, Toro, Bunyoro as well as Busoga. Additionally, Uganda has many different tribes practicing old age culture, customs, and traditions including the pygmy Batwa in Bwindi, the Banyakole famed for their magnificent long horned cattle, as well as the nomadic Karamojong living in the remote, semi-arid North East bordering Kenya and South Sudan. Historical relics including the Kasubi tombs (burial grounds of ancient Baganda kings), the Uganda Martyrs Shrine(a much more modern religious shrine), all amongst reputedly the world’s most hospitable people definitely makes Uganda one of the most ideal cultural tourism destinations in the world.Our consultants stand ready to work with our guests to create the most fascinating and unforgettable cultural experiential tours.
Adventure tours in Uganda
When it comes to adventure, nothing wins like coming face to face with the giant mountain gorilla silverback,eight times the power of a grown man, in its natural habitat. There is also chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National park which is a true definition of adventure in Uganda but not letting white water rafting amongst the rapids of the magnificent river Nile, the world’s longest, is the true epitome of an adrenaline pumping river adventure and we think that a bungee jumping thrill over the river Nile must be what real. You can as well enjoy a climb to the mountains of the moon; the Rwenzori and marvel at their ice capped peaks astride the equator or you can hike the famous Elgon Mountain on the Uganda/ Kenya border. If you take a launch cruise on the Nile, in Murchison falls national park, you can come close to the base of the beautiful falls itself where the mighty river forces its entire self through a narrow 7m cleft to tumble 43m down in a thunderous show of mighty power; without a doubt some of the most breathtaking sceneries imaginable. You can as well take a hike up to the top of the falls and marvel at the falls from above. Uganda is mainly known as the adventure capital of the whole world.
