Travelling to Uganda will not only give you a promising holiday experience. It will also give you a glimpse of the real Africa that you cannot enjoy in most African city tours.
The Republic of Uganda A Sub-Saharan Tropical Paradise
Uganda is rich in natural resources, wildlife and exotic trails. People who would like to do motorcycle expeditions may find themselves in paradise once they have tried routes along the Ugandan Terrain. One can follow the track beside the Victoria Nile Lake, starting from the town of Jinja, going to Kioga. Jinja is a large town and a great place to start a dirty motorcycle ride while the Kioga region is a great place rest and see East Africa's Great Lakes, Lake Victoria and Lake Kioga.
For those travelling with their children, the Entebbe Wildlife Education Centre is highly recommended. Unlike most zoos, most animals there can roam freely in a very big fenced land. Some tourists prefer to go to this zoo as their first or last destination because it's quite near to the airport. It is quite a great place for outdoor activities especially for those who haven't seen exotic animals. Another good thing about the Entebbe Zoo is that guests can actually stay overnight. The cabins are enticing and can give any family a wholesome camping experience. The rooms are not too lavish but all nicely built with kitchenettes, mosquito nets, comfy beds and bathrooms. There are areas, too, where people can light bonfires and grill food. The zoo is composed of three areas namely The Savannah, The Forrest and The Wetlands. All three areas boast lots of wildlife inside like Hyenas, Rhinos, Crocodiles, Lions and other animals that most children would only see in books.
For those seeking an action-packed adventure, going to Kabarega Falls is a good answer. Holidaymakers can rent a boat to experience the beauty of The Victoria Nile firsthand. Apart from the breathtaking views, there are also lots of exotic and extinct animals to be seen such as African elephants, Patas monkeys, Uganda kobs and waterbucks. It is best to go to Kabarega Falls early in the morning because it is far from other parks. Travelers should also check the weather as it can be difficult to pass through the area during wet season.
Your trip to Uganda will never be complete without trying their local dishes. Luwombo, a customary dish in Uganda, which is beef, chicken or meat stew wrapped in banana leaves is a perfect match with Kawunga, a dough-like dish made with cornmeal. These staple foods are inexpensive, but worth the try. You may find yourself really satisfied eating full Ugandan dishes, especially after long day trips. For snacks or appetizers, you can try their local samosas, which they adopted from Indian migrants during the 1970s.
