FAMOUS DESTINATIONS TO ENJOY SHORT TOURS IN UGANDA.

KAMPALA CITY.

Uganda’s capital city Kampala and the leading business city is situated right in the Central part of the country. The city shares a bigger part of the mighty Lake Victoria making boat cruising, fishing activities, quad biking, white water rafting and more popular tourism activities while on short trips in the City.

Several museums, historical sites including the Buganda royal tombs, Ugandan Museum, religious sites like the Old Kampala national mosque, and several stunning islands along Victoria are some of the captivating eye-catching attractions in the capital city of Kampala. There are also the finest accommodation facilities ranging from budget, midrange and luxury within the City where after a short trip in Kampala one may opt for a night before heading to the wilderness part of the pearl of Africa.

JINJA CITY.

Jinja City is one of the most vibrant cities in Uganda. A short tour to the source of the Nile where there’s a meeting point of the mighty Lake Victoria as it pours water to the River Nile offers the most unforgettable experience for your Uganda short tour experience.

Along the Kampala Jinja highway, just about 40 minutes of road driving from the country’s capital city of Kampala is the first tourism destination of the eye-catching waterfalls of Sezibwa, a Buganda Kingdom popular world heritage site. The Sezibwa River is the most noticeable key tourism attraction and attracts a large number of bird and mammal species that offer such a remarkable wildlife experience.

Visitors shall also be mesmerized by the daily ancestral activities carried out on the falls as the local community believes they are powers in the falls. The local people also believe that the power of the Falls and the river was created by the strong powers of Sezibwa. Several shrines by the herbalists and traditionalists can be sighted in the neighbourhood of Sezibwa which is dominated by small forests and lush vegetation. A short tour at Sezibwa will take about one full hour which visitors shall learn about the history and background of Sezibwa Falls and the people living around it. Nature walks in the country’s enormous forest of Mabira are yet another activity to enjoy after the Sezibwa before embarking on the journey for remarkable boat cruises on the source of the Nile.

THE EQUATOR.

An imaginary line of the Equator is yet another popular attraction that can be visited while on Uganda short trips. The line subdivides planet Earth into two and that’s how the 0 degrees latitude comes about. Just along the Masaka Mbarara highway after the district of Mpigi at Kayabwe is the Equator.

 Once visitors reach this point, a tour guide will carry out several experiments for guests to prove the authenticity of the equator.

Memorable Family Trip in Uganda Fantastic Trip that exceeded our expectations! Travelled to Uganda with wife and 2 children (9 and 10y old) for 7 days. Since the start (at planning stage) got a great support from Bob (company owner) and Edmund (our guide) via WhatsApp. They tailored a program to our needs including the unforgettable mountain gorillas hike, general hikes to waterfalls, safari including boat trip to see hipos!! Edmund, our guide, always super polite and the kids enjoyed him a lot! All our hotels, meals included in the package so no hassle on this….we just paid for drinks! The only regret I have is not staying one extra day in the Mburo National Park to explore a bit more 😉 Memorable trip with so much nature and a super-humble people that made the experience even more enjoyable!! Super recommend!! The whole family just feeling we need to get back to explore more 😉

Great Experience With Emerald!! It was an amazing experience! My guides Lucky and Hillary made me feel as if I was family and took care of everything I needed. They were very knowledgeable as we trekked to gorillas in Bwindi and a ride a wildlife safari through Queen Elizabeth. I learned so much from them about the animals, the terrain and the surrounding people. They we also incredibly helpful in helping me find activities around Buhoma, where I stayed, all of which were great. By the time I left I knew I had made friends who I will continue to stay in touch with. Can’t wait to come back with my family!

A rewarding experience for a family visit to queen Elizabeth National Park My family and I had an excellent guided tour to Queen Elizabeth National Park. The itinerary planning provided was good and the costing of items was realistic. The care and hospitality of the team was excellent. They were also flexible to make time adjustments brought about because of traveling with children
