  1. Day 1 Off to Kitgum

    In the morning we will pick you up and settle off north to Kitgum. We will make a few stops on the way until we arrive at Fugly's Hotel where we shall rest.

  2. Day 2 Kitgum to Kidepo Valley National Park

    In the morning, we will set off from the hotel to the park traversing farms and small villages. The wilderness is overwhelming. Once we get to Apoka in the heart of the park, a great savanna extends in all directions for over 1442km into a horizon outlined by mountain ranges.

  3. Day 3 Game Drive in Kidepo

    After breakfast we set off to explore the trails of Kidepo Valley NP. Some of the most interesting animals inhabit this park - over 80 mammal species including the cheetah and striped hyena and 400 unique bird species. Everytime you turn your head, you will see something exciting.

  4. Day 4 Learning the Karamojong Way

    Today, we will drive to a Karamojong village to learn more about their culture, music and dance. It's a learning moment.

  5. Day 5 Enroute to Murchison Falls National Park

    In the morning, we shall drive out to Murchison Falls through Gulu. Doesn't matter how many times you have seen the falls, each time is like the first. The way the Victoria Nile dissects through the park to make the rift that plunges down below creating the sensational Murchison falls is just breathtaking. We shall rest at Fort Murchison.

  6. Day 6 Game drive and boat-ride at the falls

    In the morning, we shall go on a 4 hour game drive. This will bring us close to Giraffes, Lions, Elephants, Uganda Kobs and so many different fauna. If you are a bird enthusiast, you will be impressed by the number of different species you can see. Lunch follows. But that's not all that's on the menu. In the afternoon, we go on a boat-ride to the bottom of the falls. It's exhilarating. When that's done we hike back up to the top of the falls and then head to Fort Murchison

  7. Day Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary on the way back to Kampala

    You might think you have seen it all but on the way back to Kampala, we make a stop at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary where the endangered white rhinos are being natured. We will also have lunch here before continuing on our way to Kampala
