Adventure trip to Uganda: trekking, hiking, and safari

UGANDA | Tuesday, 25 September 2018 | Views [70]

Traveling is an experience that should involve activities you don’t usually engage in. If you plan to visit Uganda, don’t be just a simple tourist and choose activities that you will remember forever. This article will present a model of an adventure trip to Uganda, which includes activities such as gorilla trekking, hiking in the most beautiful locations of this country and enjoying a true African safari. Here’s what you should know:

Trekking with gorillas and chimpanzees

Anyone who visits Uganda wants to see the gorillas and the chimpanzees roaming free. If you are sick and tired of animals being held in a zoo, this is the chance to watch them in their natural habitat. Before going on safari, trekking is the best choice. You will get the chance to meet and greet gorillas and chimpanzees. Of course, you need to maintain a safe distance between you and the animals, since you are visiting their home, not vice-versa. Trekking paths are prepared for all tourists who want to enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife at its best.

Hitting the trails

  • Mbale

The Mbale tracking region is located in Eastern Uganda and is a true natural wonder. The Mbale district is a small region in Uganda, which has no more than 90 000 inhabitants. Nature here is untouched and you can enjoy a pure hiking experienced here. Hiking the Wanale Mountain is suitable for all sorts of hikers, from beginners to advanced. A mountain hike in Mbale can take up to four days. The peak of Wanale Mountain will offer any tourist an unforgettable sight.

  • Rwenzori Mountains

The Rwenzori Mountains are suitable for both trekking and hiking, due to the fact that nature is untouched in this area. Mountain climbing in Uganda is very popular, and you can actually book tours here, even if you are a novice climber. There is a complete map of all the trails in the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, with the distances between each camp included.  

  • Murchison Falls

The Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda is perfect if you want to see the gorgeous falls in the middle of nature. The Uganda Wildlife Authority set up tracks and trails that tourists can choose to reach the Murchison Falls, an 8-meter wide cascade where the Nile is squeezed. The location is great for taking breathtaking pictures and disconnecting for a while. The hike is worth all the trouble.

Go on a safari

Finally, you should consider going on a safari. While you are in Africa, especially Uganda, going on a safari is going to shock you. Safaris are comparable to time traveling since you are about to forget that humanity exists and enjoy pure nature. Safaris are environmentally-friendly, as they encourage visiting animals in their natural habitat rather than closing them in concrete cages that are nothing like the jungle. Some safaris in Africa are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so go ahead and book your Uganda safari in time for your adventurous trip.
