Peddling & Hiking Adventure in Uganda - 12 Days

A thrilling safari that leads you from the challenging
rapids of the Source to the rolling hills that border the
Crater Lakes and then south to the mysterious depths of
Lake Bunyonyi!

Day 1: RAFTING THE NILE

Ready for a full day of adventure? Then start rafting at the Source of the Nile. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and thundering rapids of the White Nile. And do not forget to watch the incredible birdlife as you drift quietly between the rapids of the river.
Those who prefer a more peaceful experience can also decide to go for a wonderful river journey. Instead of choosing the wildest rapids, we drift swiftly between beautiful forested islands, bounce down smaller rapids and explore the least known channels.
At the end of this exciting day we head back to Kampala for overnight at Kings Holiday Inn.
For upgrade you can stay at Le Petit Village.

Day 2: KAMPALA - FORT PORTAL

After breakfast we will depart Kampala and head west to Fort Portal. Driving through the verdant countryside we will pass traditional homesteads and farms. Fort Portal rests in the shadow of the fabled Mountains of the Moon. Dinner and overnight at Rwenzori View Guesthouse.
For upgrade you can stay at Mountains of the Moon Hotel.

Day 3: CRATER LAKES WALKING SAFARI

Today you will start an adventurous hiking safari in the area of the Crater Lakes. In the afternoon lunch will be served at Bwendwera Organic Farm where you will also have the possibility to learn more about the different activities at the farm, like beekeeping and the grow of coffee and vanilla. Passing small villages, swamps and parts of tropical rainforest we continue our walk to Lake Nkuruba for overnight at simple bandas.

Day 4: CRATER LAKES WALKING SAFARI

Very early in the morning we will start our walk to the "Top of the World" where you can watch an amazing sunrise. Return to the camp for breakfast and then walk along the lake or take a refreshing swim. Later we will walk to Lake Lyantonde and visit the hidden Mahoma Waterfalls. Evening campfire and overnight in tents at Lake Mwamba.

Day 5: CRATER LAKES WALKING SAFARI

After breakfast we will start our hike to the area of Kasenda in Ruigo Forest. It is a long but beautiful walk and you will enjoy the natural beauty in its full glory. Overnight in tents at Lake Ruigo.

Day 6: CRATER LAKES WALKING SAFARI

Today we will follow the Rurama Trail to Rwetera Village, a traditional village where you can witness the pure African daily life. Visit the Amabere Caves and cold springs that are found in this area. After lunch at Chimpanzee Forest Guesthouse we will start our hike back to Fort Portal. Dinner and overnight at Rwenzori View Guesthouse.
For upgrade you can stay at Mountains of the Moon Hotel.

Day 7: FORT PORTAL - LAKE BUNYONYI

We depart the area of the Crater Lakes and drive to the south towards the border with Rwanda. Here you will find Lake Bunyonyi, the deepest lake in Uganda. Dinner and overnight at Bunyonyi Overland Camp.
For upgrade you can stay at Arcadia Cottages.

Day 8: CANOE TREKKING

After a hearty breakfast, we will depart the mainland and start peddling. Our first stop is Bushara, an island campsite where a glass of fresh juice will refresh us after a half-hour walk through eucalyptus forests full of birds. We will then visit Bwama Island, a former leper colony.
We will canoe past Punishment Island, an islet where pregnant unmarried girls used to be left to die, to the slightly bigger Sharp's island. A couple of hours in our dugouts will take us to a peaceful swimming spot, not far away from our final destination. Opposite Kyevu market lives a friendly family who will welcome us with obushera (local beer), allow us to pitch our tents in front of their grass-thatched home, and treat us with excellent local food. We will climb to the top of their peninsula as well, to see one of the humblest primary schools of the Bunyonyi area, plus a gorgeous view.

Day 9: CANOE TREKKING

After breakfast we will cross to Kyevu. We will bid a temporary farewell to our canoe captains and embark on a day of trekking. The first hour will be spent near a pretty, extensive swamp. We will run into a Batwa tribe who try to earn some money carrying heavy loads to the market. Just before the border with Rwanda we will find a steep slope that rises into Karembe Hill. Climbing this hill we will enjoy a great view at Bunyonyi and the volcano Muhavura.
After a picnic lunch we will descent gradually and stop for a meeting with local woman who manage a craft shop. Our dugouts will be waiting at Bufundi peninsula and bring us to Habukomi Island for overnight.

Day 10: CANOE TREKKING

Habukomi is the lake hideaway for pelicans, so we will visit these birds just after breakfast. Then we will paddle closer to Upside Down Island to hear its witchcraft legend. Another hour and a half in the canoes will bring us back to our home bay, but we will make one final stop - to enjoy the delicious cousine of Nature's Prime Island. In the afternoon the canoe trekking will be completed with our dugouts landing at the mainland again. Dinner and overnight at Bunyonyi Overland Camp.
For upgrade you can stay at Arcadia Cottages.

Day 11: LAKE BUNYONYI

A full day to relax and unwind after these days of adventure. Take a swim, go for birding or just sip a cocktail and read a book at the shores of the lake. Dinner and overnight at Bunyonyi Overland Camp.
For upgrade you can stay at Arcadia Cottages.

Day 12: LAKE BUNYONYI - KAMPALA

After breakfast we depart Lake Bunyonyi and head back to the capital, with several stops on our way. Arrival in Kampala in the afternoon.
