Uganda 2022

From: $1,999.00

Uganda 2022

Uganda has been widely known as the Pearl of Africa. Its unique forms of nature, people, and culture caught the eye of many explorers and has become well-known as an ultimate travel destination for adventurers. Deep green jungles, vast lakes and rivers, abundant african wildlife and of course the opportunity to see the majestic gorillas in the wild. We will be uncovering the untouched places of Uganda, but first we will be making our way to a small local community in Masaka to partner with a small organization to help them build classrooms for their student community.  Come join the epic journey you will never forget!

Uganda 2022 In cooperation with We Everyone's Child Orphans (WECO) Uganda: Our partner community in NGO circulates around an orphanage about 2 hours from Kampala. Many years ago profoundly touched by the plight of orphans and the growing number of street children, our partner registered Community Based Organization operating in Masaka district committed to a life long journey to transform and uplift destitute children in slums. They soon expanded to running a children’s school WECO Junior school where children under their protection and care acquire free education and those in the surrounding communities access very cheap education. Since then, they have recruited professional powerless young mothers as teachers, caregivers and jobless youths to join. The staff also supports the local market when they buy their produce for school meals. Currently, their junior school has enrolled 83 students with only 3 rented temporary classrooms, and a staff of 6 teachers. With a growing need and limited space, the Mudita team has pledged the fund and labour to provide 3 new classrooms allowing more kids access to the amazing care and education they deserve. They soon expanded to running a children’s school WECO Junior school where children under their protection and care acquire free education and those in the surrounding communities access very cheap education. Since then, they have recruited professional powerless young mothers as teachers, caregivers and jobless youths to join.

Day 1

Arrive in Kampala anytime. We’ll meeting for a briefing at 6pm to explain the trip, the volunteering and the adventure ahead before a group dinner and drinks to get to know your fellow travellers.

Day 2

After brekky, we’ll head on our private bus to our partner community. We’ll use the time to get to know each other a little better, and prepare ourselves for the hot & sweaty work ahead! Once we arrive, we’ll check-in, where our project leader will brief you guys about just why we’re working with them, the good that your money has done, and the work that you’ve signed up for. Then it's straight to work!

Day 3

Rise and shine. We’ll have a tour of the project and the community, get back to the hard graft. Painting, laboring, landscaping – whatever our local team hasn’t managed to do, we need to step up and get it done! It’s time to get serious. If we manage to get the work done, we'll have a small reopening ceremony to celebrate.

Day 4

We'll either be back at the orphanage to finish up, or if we finished yesterday we'll head straight to Bwindi National Park. Road trip town. Don't nap the whole way, we'll be traversing almost the whole of Uganda, and the scenery is spectacular.

Day 5

This is it. Once in a lifetime chance to be up close and personal with a whole family of wild, mountain gorillas. Depending on which groups we’re divided into, we can be trekking from 1 to 6 hours as the local rangers bring us deep in the jungle in search of the groups. We know this doesn’t come cheap, but having done it personally, it’s worth every last penny. Gorilla trekking permit is an additional $600.

Day 6

Say goodbye to the silverback. We're head off on our private transport to just outside Queen Elizabeth national park, ready for the animals tomorrow. From one jungle to another. The real Uganda.  

Day 7

Game drive time! An early start, but well worth it. Keep your fingers, toes (and everything in between) crossed for lions, giraffes, hippos, and maybe even the elusive chimps. Not a lot of people in Uganda explore this region as they all make a beeline for the gorillas, in-and-out, that’s not the Mudita Adventures style though. Let’s make the most of this beautiful country, and the animals in their natural habitat.

Day 8

Did someone say roaaaad tripppp? We’re crossing a chunk of Uganda by land today. Kampala bound. We’ll be stopping off for lunch and snacks along the way. Bartering for your coca-cola will become a nuanced artform. If we're back in time, maybe a night out in Kampala is on the cards (EDITOR EDIT: First round is on Josh!).

Day 9

We'll hop in the car, and head to Jinja. To the source of the Nile. Doesn't get much cooler than that? You've been in Uganda for almost 10 days now, so you'll not have been able to avoid the local beer, Nile. Well, today you see it up close in all its glory. After we check into our hotel, we spend the afternoon sampling the best Nile beer in the world at the Nile brewery tour.

Day 10

Hopefully the brewery tour didn't run on late, because this morning it's bucket list time. An optional white water rafting experience with Grade 5 (!) rapids at the SOURCE OF THE NILE. Epic. There are lots of other things to do here from bungee jumps to waterfall tours, so we've got everyone covered. After the adreniline wears off, we drive back to Kampala for our last night, where we overnight.

Day 11

We’re finishing up in Kampala. So get the tissues ready. Thanks Uganda, we're outta here!
