Culture-Adventure tours

Join a group of like minded travellers for a week of culture and adventure in Uganda

Do you aspire to meaningful world travel?

Do you believe in supporting local solutions to local problems?

Do you want to travel to Africa, but can’t find a travel buddy?

The Real Uganda offers an educational, action-packed, culture-adventure tour for compassionate, intrepid travelers, who love group travel!

Part 1: Culture

Get ready to plant a communal garden, make local handicrafts, get schooled in a traditional dance contest, and learn to cook delicious Ugandan food.

Our tour begins with visits to 4 locally-led, community-based organizations. You’ll volunteer along side motivated Ugandans in a new ‘hands-on’ project each day. 

Gain insights into our culture, learn about the reality of life in Uganda – and support amazing people.

Part 2: Adventure

It’s time to explore the adrenaline side of Uganda, with zip-lining and (optional) white water rafting.

We end the tour with wild-life safari activities in both Lake Mburo and Queen Elizabeth National Parks. 

Our game drives, nature walks, and boat rides offer stunning views and amazing photo ops of lions, giraffes, elephants, baboons, crocodiles, and hippos – in their natural habitat.

After each action-packed day, rest in a fully-serviced cottage, enjoy freshly prepared meals, and share drinks around the campfire.

Choose to extend your tour to include an additional 4 day gorilla tracking add-on. You’ll spend 2 nights in (aptly named) Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The day’s vigorous hike culminates in an hour up close with endangered mountain gorillas. It’s absolutely spiritual.

You also spend a day at picturesque Lake Bunyonyi. Beautiful views, dugout canoes, and a visit to the Batwa culture group are included.

The Real Uganda also has 2 to 12 week volunteer programs available for travelers with more time.
