We give our volunteers an opportunity to travel and experience all parts of Uganda by create budgets depending on which locations they wish to visit and guides can show the wonders of our country without the hassle and stress of being alone in the unknown.
In the mornings, when the sun is rising above Mountain Elgon there is opportunities to do hiking into the tropical mountains or shower in beautiful waterfalls surrounded by coffee plantations. You can also eat mixed tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and jack fruit for breakfast with passion fruit juice and tea.
In the evenings you’re always welcome to play football or any game with kids and youth, chat with them, sing and learn African songs or go for a walk in hilly village areas. Local people and especially children are very happy to spend their time with “Muzungu” (white person). Anywhere you go they greet you “Muzungu, how are you?”
On the weekends and other days-off it’s a good time for touring and exploring Uganda – the pearl of Africa. We have plenty wonderful touring opportunities in our area.
