Uganda

Welcome to Africa! You will arrive in Kampala and instantly be struck by the difference in culture, customs and climate.

Get ready to get your hike on! The Buwata Community trail will lead you up into the lush forested hills surrounding the Rwenzori Mountains. Be sure to ask your local guides about the history of the region as you trek along the challenging but picturesque ridge line.

You will soon experience the warmth of the Ugandan people in a local village project. Based in a local school, you will interact with students, playing games, teaching lessons and helping the community understand the importance of education.

What trip to Africa would be complete without the chance to spot some of the big five on a safari? Before you return home, the team will travel to Queen Elizabeth National Park, one of Africa’s top safari locations for a chance to get involved in some serious wildlife spotting!
