The trip.me way of travel
Year after year word of mouth is increasingly spreading about the unique experience of tours to Uganda.
The pinnacle of Uganda tours lies not only in its exhilarating Safari options but in its vibrant and hospitable locals. Since overcoming the turmoil of civil war and years of corruption, Uganda has climbed from strength to strength, eradicated its history and now offers an eclectic range of unparalleled tourist attractions.
The years of fearful tourists stealthily moving around Uganda’s charms have long disappeared as visitors now flood into Uganda’s welcome arms.
From the iconic Bwindi National Park to Kampala, Uganda’s buzzing capital, Uganda’s services have never looked so appealing.
The sought after African safaris are the evident driving force of tourism to Uganda still. Rwenzori National Park, a scenic mountain route that offers refreshing foothill paths through the wondrous Ugandan wildlife, features highly on visitors lists of things to do in Uganda. For the perfect diversity of natural wildlife, Rwenzori tours not only offer an eclectic range of wild animals but also stunning plant-life, crashing waterfalls, shimmering glaciers and a thriving range of colorful birds.
No tour of Uganda is complete without experiencing the unforgettable Bwindi National Park. This UNESCO world heritage site is only accessible by foot and the dense forest is inhabited by a wealth of incredible animals, rare plant-life. Offering one of the richest ecosystems in the world, Bwindi tours are simply imperative to your list.
Other great sites and tours to indulge in should include the Ziwa Rhino sanctuary, a great spot to see the delights of Rhinos in a protected environment. Kibale National Park is one of Africa’s greatest Chimpanzee parks where you can track the trails and habits of the fun-loving chimps.
The capital of Uganda, Kampala, is the perfect showcase of new-era Uganda. A frenetic, vibrant hub of African pride. A tour through this capital will allow you to engage with some of the warmest people and encounter the true sense of life in Uganda. Kampala also contains the wonderful and exciting Ndere center, a great source of cultural information on Uganda and the perfect way to interact with the traditions of the people.
For Idyllic island life, let your Uganda tours drift you to Ssese Islands, a dreamy excuse to lounge around luxurious African beaches, even if they are in the middle of Lake Victoria.
The adventure traveler will be keen to know that white-water rafting on Uganda’s Nalubale river tours offer an adrenaline rush of a lifetime and waterfall enthusiasts will be in ore with a visit to Murchison Falls.
Ugandan food tends to center around rice, with sumptuous groundnut stews to accompany or the ubiquitous Ugali cabbage side dishes. Chicken and fresh fish are the favorite meat accompaniments, with beautiful fresh fish from Victoria lake a delectable purchase. Beef, goat, and mutton are also common.
Every visitor should experience the array of fresh fruit that is cheap and often straight off the trees, a key refreshment in the Ugandan sun.
Nut allergists beware as groundnut, most commonly peanuts, are a staple requirement in the cooking process in Uganda. So make sure to inquire.
Proffessional, quick, service minded. Excellent!
We had an excellent 15 day trip around Uganda with a short trip over the border into Rwanda with lots of amazing wildlife experiences - the highlights were the gorillas in Bwindi, rhinos in Ziwa, chimps in Kibale forest, game drives and boat trips in Murchisons falls, Queen Elizabeth and lake Mburo national parks. I'd definitely recommend arranging a tour with Ken Bushman.

Lydia planned a trip for me according to my preferences. I had a great week in Uganda and her planning was perfect.
My trip was excellent. I got to see parts of both Rwanda and Uganda in 14 days and Kenneth was extremely flexible.
We had a really good time. there was flexibility and really good value for money. All the accommodation was good. we had a good idea on what to expect. The guide was excellent- he told us everyday about what the travel was like, the roads, the expected times of arrivals etc.Read More Read More Less
