Christian Safaris in Uganda – A Spiritual Discovery
In the Heart of Africa – its Pearl Uganda – rediscover – be renewed in Spirit on a Safari in the African Wild
African Safari in Uganda with a Spiritual Focus
A quote attributed to Martin Luther (1483-1546) states “ God writes the Gospel, not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.” Safari –is a Swahili word meaning journey – there is not only the outer Safari –Journey-but the inner Safari – Journey – where as you drink in your surroundings in the Pearl of Africa – there is an inner renewal of the spirit – there is a rediscovery of the hand of God in your African surrounding and in your life.
Mother Teresa wrote “We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.” In the heart of Africa on a Christian Safari – rediscover the heart of God within – allow God’s creation to touch your heart as your eyes look upon the endless Savannah – behold the majestic Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon or the Virunga Volcanoes, view and experience the historic River Nile flowing through Uganda, take a boat ride on the vast sea of Lake Victoria and discover its islands, boat across enchanting Lake Bunyonyi, visit the Mountain Gorillas in the ancient Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, experience an African sunrise of sunset in the Bush, spend a night in a Tree House in the African Jungle of Kibale Forest – reach the summit of the ancient volcano Mount Sabinyo – all places of discovery of the handiwork of the creator and places of inner renewal where the only sounds you might hear are the sounds of the African Night as you look toward the full moon and the endless African Sky filled with countless of Stars.
A Private Christian Safari adds the spiritual dimension – spiritual focus to your Safari in the Pearl of Africa – Uganda. An enriching of your inner an outer Journey –Safari-a journey that is arranged in a way that is sensitive to your spiritual preferences, inputs and wishes – all with the focus of rediscovery, renewal, inner and outer refreshment on your safari of a lifetime in Africa – in Uganda.
Christian Safaris – Journeys- are not something new – for years people have trekked to places such as Lourdes, Jerusalem – Israel – Jordan. Wonderful – yet we believe that there is something most spiritual about an African Safari in Uganda. The gospel comes alive in the heart of Africa as you behold nature, creation with al of its wonders and unimaginable beauty – as you experience unspoiled Africa – there is a deep realization that we are stewards of all that God has created and you discover God’s creation – experience him as you are on safari – journey in Uganda.
Our Personal and Private Christian Safaris come with a Christian Guide who is sensitive not only to your physical needs, your choices as to what to see and do and in what way, but a Christian Guide who understands your spiritual needs, wishes, desires. Leading you and or group in a morning devotional time at sunrise, evening sunset time of reflection, prayer and meditation, allowing you time for journaling and be part of the refreshing part of your Safari in Uganda where once again you learn the art of being rather than simply doing producing the dust of much activity – doing. Depending on your Christian Beliefs Communion or Mass can be administered in the wilds of Africa in Uganda.
Our Christian Staff will do their all to make your individually designed safari – your journey into the heart of Africa a place where you can enjoy the creation of God in comfort and at the same time in the style of a traditional safari with the added spiritual dimension. Visits to Ugandan Churches can be part of that safari of heart in Uganda – African churches are growing – faster than in any other region in the world and Christianity has become a rich part of Ugandan culture. Such visits can include to historical sites such as Namugongo Martyr’s Shrine where many young men were executed for their faith for refusing to deny Christ and resist the advances of a King (Kabaka) – a most moving experience.
Allow God to use your African surroundings with its sights and sounds to bring nourishment to your soul. If you have friends along that would not set foot into a Church, this time on a spiritual Safari in Uganda will allow God to speak to them through he magnificent Creation that is all around – from the pride of lions up in the trees of Ishasha, the thousands of birds on Kazinga Channel, the power of Murchison Falls with its almost eternal like rainbow, the rapids of the River Nile, the list is unending.
Because your safari is designed just for you and the group of your friends or family you are with – the content of the safari including the spiritual dimensions of that safari from communion in the Bush or daily devotions in the settings you desire from the River Nile to the top of an extinct volcano – or on a savannah plain at sunset.
You will certainly see and experience the creation of God in Uganda – the gospel made alive through his creation in the Pearl of Africa and you experiencing it all on your Christian Safari in Uganda – that inner and outer journey into the heart of Africa…from the heart of Africa – from its Pearl – Uganda…jon
