Uganda Rural Life Experience Day Tour
This tour is the opposite of doing a Kampala city walk tour, it involves seeing the rural Uganda and all the beauty it comes with. Are you ready to see nature and nature at its best?
We meet and greet in the morning at 7:00AM at your accommodation and drive off outside Kampala, driving through the most times crowded Kampala suburbs with a chance to look at street markets and people carrying on with their daily routines that come with living in the capital city. After approximately one hour, we shall have our first stopover at the tea estate, where we shall take you through the process of tea growing and processing. You will have a chance to buy the locally made Uganda Tea. We shall continue our journey driving through a sugar cane estate to arrive in a village where we spend the rest of our day showing you how people away from Kampala take on life.
We shall get ready to go on a guided nature and community walk, showing you a typically village setting, telling you about how people in rural Uganda treat neighbors and community events, taking you through well cultivated gardens where they grow the food for home consumption and the surplus for sale explaining and demonstrating to you how different foods are grown and pointing out to you herbal plants that they use to treat diseases. We shall also look at coffee and how is it grown, coffee selling is one of the main sources of income to people in this village.
If you love birds, this tour will surely have you see different birds while on the walk. We get to visit a community school and interact with the kids and how it is going to school in the rural Uganda. We shall talk about how families earn a living in the village and how kids help their parents to get them food at the table when they come home from school.
Fruits; guavas, mangoes, jack-fruit, sugarcane, are always in our sight when its season you shall have a taste of the organic fruits.
We shall return to the camp to have lunch, it is cooked in a hygienic way and will not get you any problems. It is typical Ugandan local food most of which you would have been shown during the garden session. During this time you will learn more about rural African table manners and how the dining concept is handled.
The other option is snacks, upon booking, we will ask of which of the 2 options you are most comfortable with and we do prior arrangements.
After our lunch break, we shall have a short rest and relaxation thereafter start our return journey, with a stopover at the cultural eco-site where you will learn more about the African traditional religion and take a short walk to the top of the falls. This is one of those tours that will give you a clear understanding of the African rural life in just a day!
