Uganda is a country that keeps hosting visitors from all around the world. Uganda has so far been given many names, among others: “The Pearl of Africa” by Sir. Winston Churchhill (former Prime Minister of Great Britain), “The Switzerland of Africa”, “Africa condensed into one small country – by Lonely Planet”, “Gifted by Nature”, “Unique Uganda” and the list goes on and on.
The country is given those names for many reasons: For having the friendliest people in the whole universe; For the diversity of culture; For magnificence; For a variety of form and color; For a profusion of brilliant life – bird, insect, reptile, beast – for vast scale.

Murchison Falls National Park is also endowed with abundant vegetation such as the large Savannah area, fertile swamp lands and riparian forests. It is in this national park that the long River Nile thrusts 40 meters below after casting itself rapidly through a natural slit.
3 – Nature Walks
Do a Nature walk in Lake Mburo National Park. Game Drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park and track Chimpanzees in Kibale National Park.
4 – Cultural Tours
The Ugandan people are like any other African society when it comes to how culture is passed on from generation to generation. Uganda has one of the richest and most diverse cultures in Africa and the whole world. The amazing thing is that culture and traditions are handed down from generation to generation, not in books, but under trees, around fire places, in grass-thatched kitchens in rural villages by elders.
Those legends, tales, and proverbs are passed on to the younger generations, to their hearts and minds and are practiced in various forms and make up the culture of Uganda. This is what other like to call Authentic Africa.
Three days alone cannot cover all the corners of Uganda as far as cultural tours are concerned. However, we design an itinerary in such a way that our guests can have a great experience.
The Cultural Tours range from:
a) Visiting Kasubi Tombs: This is the Royal burial place of Buganda’s Kings.
b) Village Stay: Stay in an Authentic African Village.
During your village stay safari in Uganda, you will get a cultural experience like no other. You will stay in a clean room, but no running water, no electricity, no flush toilet. You will not be staying in a normal lodge or hotel room, but in a Banda, a traditional African Hut. You will be experiencing village life, gathering food in the garden, preparing and cooking food, learning new skills such as basket weaving. You will meet Ugandans up-close and personal teaching you about their day-to-day life.
c) Visit the Batwa (Pygmies) people: The Batwa people were the original people of the rain forests of Uganda.
They both lived and hunted for food in the forests, leaving almost no trail at all of their existence in the area. Be sure to encounter the Batwa people when you visit South Western Uganda.
The Batwa are in Rwanda are known as the Twa people. Through making and selling of pottery, the Twa people have a had a much better chance of a good welfare in Rwanda.
d) Buhoma Community Village Walk: Meet the community beyond Gorilla Tracking while staying in the Buhoma areas of Bwindi Impenetrable Forests. This is your chance to meet the people of Buhoma and learn more about their culture.
On a Village Walk, you will learn the local African ways of making crafts, cooking, dancing, brewing and making herbal medicines. You will get an insight into the culture of the local people here at Buhoma Village.
e) Ndere Cultural Centre: The best place for a true Ugandan cultural experience is Ndere cultural center. Activities include Dancing, Story Telling, Drama etc.
