Day 1

Drive east from Kampala to visit Jinja, the sleepy, relaxed city situated at the Source of the Nile. Enjoy a boat ride to the Source of the Nile, or choose from a range of adventure activities including white water rafting* around Bujagali Falls, or bungee jumping on the Nile. En route to Jinja we pass many sugar cane and tea plantations plus forests where we can also do forest walks, zip lining, etc.

*If you are planning on rafting this same day, we need to leave very early in the morning.

Day 2

Begin driving towards Sipi Falls/Mt. Elgon and reach there early afternoon. You have two options once we arrive. For each one, we recommend planning on spending sundown atop a viewpoint where you can see the far western edge of the Eastern Rift Valley.

Option 1: Hike to see the three falls. This takes between 4-6 hours depending on your fitness level. Hikes around the falls offer stunning views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga, and the slopes of Mt. Elgon. You will also visit Uganda’s highest waterfalls on the mountain + the largest caldera/crater on top of a mountain on earth.

Option 2: Relax as you learn to pick, roast and make your own coffee (keep it as a souvenir!).

3

Day 3

Depart Sipi and drive towards Kidepo. It’s a really long drive, so we recommend you break it up by overnighting in Moroto or Kotido, the largest towns in the region. Arrive late evening and relax.

4

Day 4

Choose to relax this day or try some hiking and/or cultural activities, including kraal/corral visits (local homestead overnights). This is a really unique opportunity and one you’ll definitely tell stories about back home!

5

Day 5

Wake in either the kraal or your hotel/guesthouse. Pack and begin the rest thedrive to Kidepo National Park. Enter the park and enjoy a mini-game drive en route to your accommodation for the evening. You’ll have another game drive in the evening before relaxing.

6

Day 6

Enjoy a morning and evening game drive. The lions are amazing here so keep your eyes open! Evening drives are amazing because of the flat savannah and stunning sunsets!

7

Day 7

Exit the park and begin the drive back to Kampala (10 hours). This is a long day that can be broken up by stopping somewhere en route (ex. Gulu or the Rhino Sanctuary; +1 day) or by adding Murchison Falls National Park to your trip (5 hours away). Depending on your choice, we can return to Kampala late on the 7th day, or a more relaxed return on the 8th, or even later if you opt for Murchison Falls.
