Uganda – The Wellness Safari Difference
A Safari, including a Wellness Safari In Uganda, comes with a Cultural Twist. Unlike in much of the rest of Africa. In Uganda, you are not just an observer in a vehicle but an active participant.
You can track Gorillas, Chimpanzees, lovable Golden Monkeys. Activities where you hit the trail or blaze a new one.
Try climbing one of the Virunga Volcanoes, the Mufumbiro Mountains that Cook. You are reaching new heights with its challenges. Those on a Wellness Safaris often hit one of Uganda’s many trails inside and outside of Uganda’s Parks.
For the more daring, there is the best White-Water Rafting in East Africa. Not on just any River, but the ancient River Nile that flows through Pearl Africa.
Uganda abounds with adventurous and challenging activities that will rebuild you within and strengthen you.
Cultural Encounters – Expanding your Horizon
You are expanding your Horizon on a Safari. Most Cultural Encounters in Africa are tourism-related. Often they are planned, commercialized Village Visits—reproductions of what once was.
Discerning African Travelers do not want to be culturally entertained but culturally engaged in meaningful dialogue and interaction that often become encounters with a purpose.
Many become involved in a Cultural Encounter with meaning and purpose, such as becoming involved with a local school, hospital, water, or reforestation project.
Others choose to learn a local artisan’s craft of making baskets, jewelry, carvings, pottery, among other things.
Others use their skills as medical professionals, teachers, human rights advocates, and computer technicians to empower others.
The choices are endless, learn how to dance or drum African Style. Spend time with a traditional healer or learn how to make classic Banana Juice or Beer. All things that are beyond what is considered routine tourist cultural encounters.
The weather is unlike what most visitors think that it is like. Though the Equator runs through Uganda, the weather is pleasant Holiday Weather all year long due to its elevation, the Great Lakes, and the Rwenzori Mountains and Virunga Volcanoes.
For most countries, temperatures will range from 25-29°C (77- 84°F). Southwest Uganda, the area that includes Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park, is much cooler. Gorilla Trekking Weather is below 25°C -77°F.
Uganda is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts due to its pleasant climate from its elevation, lakes, rivers, and mountains.
Even on days when it rains, the sun still comes out for much of the day. Uganda is the perfect African Country for a wellness Safari.
The Swahili words Pole Pole means slowly-slowly tie it together with Hakuna Matata – you and No-Worry begin to understand the African concept of time.
Time in Ais Africa is not based on tasks performed but on nurturing relations, including his relationship with himself.
Time to relax, chill out, unwind. Uganda is a landlocked country, yet it has Lake Victoria, the largest Lake in Africa. There you can spend time on the private Bulago island with Palm Tree studded Sandy Beaches just south of the Equator. Spend a day or two on Ngamba Chimpanzee Island, a chimpanzee sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees.
Choose an Island where the wild waters of the River Nile surround you as you soak in a tub on your private deck. Stay in Africa’s funkiest Lodge with the million-dollar view of Lake Mutanda framed by the Virunga Volcanoes. That is just the beginning.
