Itinerary

Day 1: Entebbe-Kampala, Uganda

Today you will be picked up at the Entebbe international airport upon arrival and transferred to your accommodation in the capital city of Kampala for check-in.

Enjoy the rest of the at your leisure to relax, explore, and get settled in.

Overnight in Kampala.

Day 2: Kampla-Mbale, Uganda

Today we will travel east to the Mbale district.

Upon arrival you’ll check into your lodge located at the base of the stunning Sipi Falls.

Journey time: 5 hours

Day 3-7: Mbale, Uganda

Spend these 5 days building a protected well in one of the communities in the area.

Most parts of Eastern Uganda have no running water, and your help to build a well is crucial aid for these communities in need.

Our local partner Lodoi Development Fund is involved in various projects oriented towards improving health care and sanitation in the region.

Day 8: Mbale-Jinja, Uganda

This morning you will set out early from Mbale to Jinja in south-eastern Uganda, on the shores of Lake Victoria.

We will head straight to the Sole Hope medical clinic to lend a helping hand to their noble cause. Sole Hope focuses on the treatment and eradication of jiggers (a type of parasitic flea) in Eastern Uganda.

After seeing the medical clinic we will visit the organisation’s shoe factory to get involved in giving out shoes to the children in the community. Shoes are a crucial defense against jiggers, which burrow into bare feet.

Journey time: 2 hours

Please note: If you are uncomfortable working at the clinic, you can opt to volunteer at Abide family centre, a non-profit whose aim is to keep marginalized children with their families so that they don’t end up in orphanages. They achieve this through the training and mentoring of single moms and foster parents. On arrival to Jinja, Abide will introduce you to these families. You will be divided into smaller groups and a host family will be assigned to each group. At the host family’s home, you will get to engage and interact with the kids, get involved in their daily chores and even share a lunch with the family. A day with these families gives you great insight into local Ugandan culture.

Day 9: Jinja- Kampala, Uganda

Set off early this morning for a full day of white-water rafting!

For real adventurers, we will be plunging over adrenaline-pumping 4- and 5-grade rapids (if you prefer to stick to grade 3 rapids, we can also offer this option). Or, if rafting is not your thing, you can go for a full-day quad biking adventure along the banks of the Nile! Either way, you’re in for a truly great day.

At the end of the day, you will drive back to Kampala for overnight.

Journey time: 2 hours

Day 10: Kampala, Uganda

This morning we will take a walking tour of Kampala to see major landmarks and pay a visit to a local market.

Overnight in Kampala.
