The Adventure

The adventure begins with the optional Kampala City tour. Formally the “hill of impalas” - where it derived its name, traces back to the 1600's when it was established as the capital of Buganda Kingdom.

It sits on 7 hills which were formally the Buganda Kingdom cities. We will drive through prime residential areas, shopping centers, markets, monuments, craft village etc depending on the time we shall have.

We shall take a tour of the famous Kasubi Tombs- the burial ground for Buganda royal monarchs, and later go to the source of the River Nile on Lake Victoria, a point where the Nile starts the 6,500km long journey through Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea. We shall engage in activities like bungee jumping and grade five white water rafting along the Nile.River Nile
