You will be visiting the Karimojong people, do a game drive at Kidepo valley national park, visit Sippi falls, local coffee processing farms, experience the ancient Ugandan and Bamasaba culture, go white water rafting, visit the Itanda waterfalls and finally visit the source of the river Nile.

This trip is for both solo travelers or a family looking for adventure. Tourists who embark on this tour will get to explore the beauty of Uganda.

Please see our itinerary for day-by-day activities. We look forward to show you our Uganda.
Hotel
On arrival you will be transferred to the source of the Nile. Here you will treat your eyes to the spot where the world’s longest River Nile begins its journey to Egypt.

Originally starting out as a thunderous Ripon Waterfall, this rather quiet spot has been visited by literally every world leader to Uganda and most of the influential people you may know of, including Mahatma Gandhi of India – you will have the opportunity to stand exactly where John Speke, the first European to see the spot, stood in 1862.

If you like and are daring enough, both white water rafting and bungee jumping can be organized for you. Quad biking and jet boating are also adrenaline testing activities.
Hotel
This day starts early morning to farther east, stopping over the Bishop Hannington murder site. You will have a look at the ancient palace, Hannington’s bedroom, church and reading room which he used for a month as he waited for his death.

Proceed to Mbale for lunch and hotel check-in. Relax at the hotel and proceed to Mutoto women cultural dance group, for a treat of up to seven types of dances (for circumcision, funerals, harvest, etc). Interact with the people of the Bamasaba land.

If your visit is in the Even year, you will see firsthand how traditional circumcision is done to boys being initiated into adulthood. It is such an amazing activity that is a true reflection of courage in pursuit of adulthood.
Hotel
Head off to the Sipi region in the morning after breakfast. Activities in this region will be handled by the local community, who will work as your guides all through. Have a morning visit to the magnificent waterfalls of the Sipi River as it traverses the Kapchorwa land from the Elgon Mountains.

The sight of this waterfall, an entire river dropping off a 100 meters high cliff is amazing. You can’t stop gazing at this wonderful beauty. From the waterfall, the community will guide you through a natural swimming pool (formed by River Sipi) and further to the cave where ancient kings of the area used as a palace, until the death of the last one in the 1990s , from the same cave as his home.

The day will end with a visit to a few of the coffee plantations, as this highland area is known for producing the best Arabica coffee in Uganda. You will watch firsthand how Arabica coffee is grown and processed locally, with the activity ending with a hot cup of coffee. You taste this coffee, you may never taste any other coffee – it is organic and authentic.
Apoka safari lodge
The day begins with morning breakfast and we drive further north-east of Uganda, to the land of Karimojong Nomadic pastoralists. Arrive in the afternoon at Kidepo National Park, arguably the most beautiful wildlife protected area in Uganda.
Apoka safari lodge
Go for early morning game drive in the beautiful plains of the Kidepo Valley National park. You will encounter elephants, giraffe, zebra, lion, eland, hartebeest, cheetah and very large herds of buffalo.
Apoka safari lodge
The day begins with breakfast and then we travel through the Karimojong land to the place where you will find what could possibly be the most marginalized people of Africa. Living in natural caves in the hills, these people do not wear clothes and mostly depend on hunting and fruit gathering.

Interestingly, you may be able to hear some of the words in their language. Be one of the few people to encounter this marginalized tribe of Uganda.
Return to Kampala City and transfer to Entebbe Airport for return flight.
