Excursions

Fellows will get the opportunity to make the most of their time in Uganda by going on weekend excursions. Income from these excursions supports our work and contributes to our sustainability. Uganda’s diverse wildlife, primates and lush scenery mean there are lots to experience.

You will spend three days and two nights in Queen Elizabeth National Park, famous for the behaviour of the park’s tree-climbing lions. Enjoy several game drives in search of elephants, buffalo, lions, hyenas, hippos, and an array of birdlife. Take a boat trip to see animals by the water and enjoy a team dinner on the peninsula.
Just 2-hours from the lodge, Lake Bunyonyi is one of Uganda’s most beautiful spots. Over the weekend you will stay on one of the lake’s 35 small islands. Activities include swimming, canoeing, and a boat trip to explore the lake and see various islands. In the evenings, enjoy drinks as the sun sets over the lake, and enjoy a team dinner at luxury hotel Birds Nest.
Uganda’s River Nile is one of the world’s most renowned rafting locations. The first section of the route consists of several grades 3-5 rapids. Stop for a well-earned BBQ lunch before you navigate the final stage of rapids. End enjoying a cold drink with your teammates at the drop off point.
A ‘bucket list’ experience, this is a challenging guided trek into the thick interior of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. You’ll spend an hour in the company of a family of endangered mountain gorillas. The trip includes transport, permits, and guides who lead you to and from the gorillas in safety.
Anyone participating in the Safari Weekend can choose this as an additional activity. You will undertake a trek into Kyambura Gorge, habituated by chimpanzees and a variety of other primates.
