Kampala, Uganda

— 8 nights
Kampala enjoys the reputation of a modern city with a buzzing atmosphere--it also serves as a good base point for exploring the surrounding area.
Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Itanda Falls. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lake Victoria and Gorilla Bookings. Get out of town with these interesting Kampala side-trips: Ssezibwa Falls (in Mukono) and Nile Reptile Park (in Jinja). Spend the 2nd (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: stop by Kampala Fair, browse the different shops at The Acacia Mall, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baha'i Temple, and make a trip to Wamala King's Tombs.
