Our guide will pick you up and drive you south westwards via Masaka. You will stop over at the equator where you will experience the reality of standing in two hemispheres. While there, you can buy souvenirs and also take photographs to capture th0se moments that you can later reminisce upon when you think of Uganda. You will stop for a lunch break and then continue to Queen Elizabeth National park. Due to the volcanic activity in the area, the scenic beauty is breath taking. It is worth taking in, for those moments when you are in need of recollecting a beautiful memory. Welcome, to Uganda.
An early game drive along Kasenyi and Queens Mile enables visitors to encounter elephants, buffaloes, water bucks, warthogs, lions, Uganda Kobs, lakes and a variety of birds. This is because game drives are more productive when the day is cool. Animals in the wild are most active when the sun is down and the day is cool therefore an early morning game drive will enable you see the animals crawl out of their homes, yawn, stretch and begin to hunt for a meal. Even the most dangerous animals like the lions wake up and strut their way fearless and freely through the jungle. After lunch, we embark on a two hour boat trip along the 40km long Kazinga channel which joins Lake Edward and Lake George. Its shorelines attract a large number of birds, mammals and reptiles. These include, crocodiles, hippos, buffaloes, Kobs, elephants and warthogs among others. You will see how these animals co-exist in harmony and how the hippos and buffaloes immerse themselves aggressively and yet so gently in the water in order to cool off from the scorching heat of the sun.
After breakfast, you will visit the Katwe salt mines. Here you will be able to experience the only traditional way of salt mining in Uganda. This experience will be so educative and yet adventurous as our guides will fill you in on everything you need to know about these salt mines. You will also visit the numerous crater lakes in the area which were caused by volcanic action. After wards you will return to Kampala via Fort Portal. You will be able to see Mt. Rwenzori in the back drop and watch it fade away in a distance as we leave the salt mines. You will then be dropped at the destination of your choice.
