There is nothing like taking a walk on the wild side. Explore the savannah by foot, accompanied by an armed guide you will venture along dry river beds, over rocky outcrops and through bush land to track the resident wildlife.

Lamoj Mountains: This area is in the Narus Valley, a prime game viewing area Kidepo River Valley: Visitors may as well go to see the marvellous Kidepo River Valley. Meanwhile, the river  dried out through the biggest part of the year. A stroll on its wide bed of white sand or in the borassus palm forest. Which feels like an oasis in the Sahara, is a fascinating attraction.

Community Visits

A unique insight into the warrior tribe’s way of life. The name Karamojong derived from a phrase meaning ‘the old men can walk no further’. Originally from Ethiopia, this tribe settled in the north east of Uganda. Related to the Maasai, this is a warrior nomad tribe for whom, for generations, pride and status were cattle and for whom cattle raids were the rule of the day. Since the disarmament however, things have calmed down. Cattle are still king, but subsistence farming has become a lot more common.
