Highlights
    What to Expect
    Day 1: Bulange and Lubiri Palace

    We drive towards Mengo trading Centre, a small modernized area within Rubaga division having a hospital, church, market, schools and good hotels. Bulange serves as the traditional seat of Buganda Parliament; also recently closed CBS radio was located. It’s well known for its colonial architecture and enclosed wall as well as its strategic location on Mengo hill. Dinner and overnight in Kampala

    Day 2: Kasubi Tombs

    Kasubi hill was once the palace of Kabaka Suuna II and Mutesa and is the tradition in Buganda after a king dies; the place is abandoned, so Kasubi was named a tomb serving as burial grounds for the kingdom rulers. Dinner and overnight in Kampala

    Day 3: Ssezibwa Falls

    After a warm cup of tea head to the National Museum in Kamwokya. It is the best and oldest museum in East Africa having deeply rooted ethnographic collection all contributing to the background of Uganda as a nation. There are exhibits of different traditional Ugandan lifestyles, musical instruments from most parts of the continent among other things. We continue to Ssezibwa Falls east of Kampala, which was once a favorite spot for the Kabaka Mwanga and Mutesa. Where they planted trees themselves. Dinner and overnight in Kampala

    Day 4: Katereke Prison

    Katereke Prison ditch was constructed by Kabaka Kalema in the late 1880’s for those who opposed him. These were mainly his brothers and family members and he went further and massacred them in order to get rid of future succession. Instead this worsened his reign and later led to his fall. After lunch continue to Mbarara town. Mbarara was the heart of the defunct Ankole kingdom founded in the early 1500’s by the Bacwezi dynasty. The king was termed as “omugabe” and came from the Bahima clan. Dinner and over at the hotel in Mbarara

    Day 5: Lake Mburo

    We drive to Lake Mburo national Park which is named after one of two brothers who once lived in this place who drowned in a flood as a result of being stubborn despite his constant warnings. You will view different antelope species like, sitatunga antelope, the impalas for which Kampala is named after as you do a game drive through the park.

    Day 6: Salt Lick/Kampala

    In the morning, go to the viewing platform and witness different animals coming to lick salt. If you are a committed birder, walk along the Rwizi trail that leads to Rubanga forest, an interesting site to birders mostly as it offers excellent birding. Lookout for mosque swallow, bare-faced go-away, and Ruppell’s long-tailed starling. Return to Kampala after lunch but making a stopover at the equator for picture moments and buying of souvenirs.
