5 days itinerary in Uganda

Hi,

Unfortunately I have only 4 days available for a trip in Uganda (after a 2-days business stay in Kampala). Can you suggest an itinerary within this constraint?

Thanks,

Ben

Well Ben, it very much depends on you and what you find of interest.

Adrenalin Junkies head east to Jinja and the Nile for White Water and Bungees.

Wildlife fans would head for a National Park such as Mburo or further afield Murchison/QENP where there are Big Cats and Elephant etc., (Get up close and personal with an Ellie famly and who needs Bungees? There will be plenty of Adrenalin right there.)

For a real treat get over to Bwindi NP and visit Gorillas. A longer drive and a tough walk, sometimes, but this is something everybody should do at least once. Face to face with one of our closest relatives is very humblng.

All these options will fit into your 4 days but not all together. Choose wisely!

Dear Ben

You would be wise to ignore solicitation and promotion.

Red Chilli might be the perfect solution for you. Check out their trips to the rhinos and Murchison.

Come back and tell us what interests you!

Can take a 4 days Bwindi and Lake Bunyonyi. Alternatively Red chilli has the best tour options to Murchison falls and Ziwa. Other possible options would be 4 days queen Elizabeth and Lake Mburo safari.

All depends on your pocket.

Or Murchison River Lodge - Sambiya is too far out and a bit dated.
