COMMUNITY TOURS

In order to make the authentic Uganda accessible to travelers, we have created different community trails. 

Transportation is excluded from the prices, please let us know if you want us to arrange a driver for you.

Traditional workshops

This trip gives the opportunity to meet the local community in the Rwenzori mountains and get to know their know-how and traditions: handcrafts, blacksmithing, Bakonzo traditional dance and preparation of local food dishes. You will also have the chance to meet traditional healers and storytellers. Purchase of local hand made products will be possible on site.

Village walk

The trail begins in Kilembe Valley where the walk towards the Mbunga Camp Site (approx. altitude 1600m)  is located. You can choose between walking, hiking or taking a boda-boda to get there. From the camp site, you will have the opportunity to visit traditional homes of the Bakonzo tribe, enjoy great views of the valley and visit the local school, church, trading centre, etc.

 

The package includes lunch at the restaurant Gode Dager

 

If you want to live a memorable night in the mountains, we also offer accommodation in our camp site (three bedrooms or camping space for your tent).

 

The campfire under the starry sky with local music and dance will be unforgettable!

Kakule trail

The trail starts from Kasese, and include the visit of the equatorial line, the Katunguru fishing village by the Kazinga channel, Katwe salt lake, and the Uganda-Congo border market (only on Tuesdays and Fridays) or the boat cruise in the channel. In addition to this, there will be plenty to see along the way as you will drive along one of the most diverse national parks in Uganda, with the opportunity to see different wild animals and birds. The driver will make plenty of stopovers.
