At the end of the boat safari, we take you on the Katwe Explosion Crater Drive. This is definitely one of the most scenic drives in Uganda.
That time of the day, before sunset, the lighting conditions will be right for great photo-ops. Some of the craters were featured in National Geographic.
The Explosion Crater Drive is at the highest point in the park. From here, you see the beautiful craters and crater lakes. The breathtaking Western Rift Escarpment and the Savannah below. There is Lake Edward, Lake George, and the Kazinga Channel. Shadowing over it all are the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon, the tallest Mountain Range in Africa.
