Top Things to do in Uganda

Top Things to do in Uganda

  1. Visit the source of River Nile: This glorious river, which flows through eleven countries, is the longest river in the world and you will encounter it few more times during your Uganda travel. If you like adrenalin water sport, don’t miss out on the white water rafting in Jinja or see its rich animal life on its shores in the Murchison Falls National Park.

  2. Hike to the 100 meter high Sipi waterfall: Sipi falls is an amazing attraction in Eastern Uganda near Mbale Town. It is a series of waterfalls found in the eastern part of Uganda in Kapchorwa district and the northeast of Mbale. Of which the longest drop is 100m. The falls are found on the edge of Mt Elgon National Park and on the slopes of Mt Elgon. if you like water and intensive green color, you should never miss out on this beautiful and powerful waterfall. While hiking down the waterfall, you will be challenged by the steep leather, shaking knees and sweat, but as soon as you take your eyes on the waterfall you will know, why you are here.

  3. Enjoy a diverse landscape I almost could say, Uganda offers every landscape, you can see in Africa. Uganda has it all – jungle, savannas, lakes, rivers, mountains…The only thing it is missing is the desert and the sand dunes.

  4. Go on a safari  Safaris are probably one of the most recognizable things in Sub-Africa and I can happily say Uganda also has some amazing national parks, which are perfect for safari and also a lot cheaper than the ones in Kenya and Tanzania. The most popular and visited national park in Uganda is Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth. If you prefer less visited places, don’t miss out on the Kidepo national park. It is far northeast and just below the Sudan border. Seeing all the animals in their natural inhabitant is one of the best experiences of the Uganda travel – observe elegant giraffes, big elephant’s families, hunting lions, playful antelopes, lazy water-buffalos, curious monkeys … I guarantee you, you will be speechless.

  5. Try their Arabica coffee  Uganda grows also Arabica coffee and no matter if you like it or not, you should try it,

  6. Rent a canoe at Lake Bunyonyi or lake mutanda  when arriving at the Bunyonyi Lake you will think you are in some kind of a fairytale. The landscape is just unreal here. The big volcanic lake, which has more than 29 small islands, is so charming you would want to stay here longer than first planned.  Rent a wooden canoe (6-10 USD/day) and enjoy the peace and quiet as it looks like the time stopped here few centuries ago. The good news is, this lake should be bilharzias free, so it is supposed to be safe for swimming. The only down side of the Bunyonyi lake is its altitude, as it can get pretty chilly and rainy.

  7. Go Gorillas or chimpanzee trekking this is probably  one of the most expensive things to do. (Gorillas trek – 600 USD/pp, Chimpanzee trek – 80/150 USD).

  8. Try the typical food – 

  9. Visit local markets First think which you will notice, are colors… Not only because of the colorful veggies and fruit, even the people and their dresses are something you put a shine on. Open your eyes and ears and enjoy the lively markets in all their beauties.
